Community and Elders Program
Regis University nursing students are featured with their elder friends at Brookdale at Highlands Ranch. Bessie's Hope has worked with the Regis University Nursing Program to assist in providing elder care settings for the nursing students to have semester-long placements in a geriatric experience. They do participate in the Bessie’s Hope group interaction with the elders, and they also have the opportunity for 1:1 with the elders, as part of their learning experience.
This program engages adult groups, who may or may not choose to include their own families, for one-time or ongoing visits at nursing homes and assisted living communities. Get your workplace, civic organization, club, or church group involved. Adult groups always express how meaningful this hands-on, life-changing community service project is. Like with the youth, Bessie's Hope provides the training, coordination, and facilitation of one-time or ongoing visits with the nursing home/assisted living elders.
