Community & Elders Program Feature – March/April 2020

Regis University students and teachers have woven participation with Bessie’s Hope into the Pharmacy and Nursing Service Learning curriculum for many years. Students are able to experience the variance among many nursing homes, assisted living communities and be introduced to the vast career opportunities in long term care.

Regis students enjoyed singing, dancing, conversation and games with residents from Balfour at Stapleton, Bethany Nursing and Rehab,  Brookshire House, Brookside Inn, Cedars Healthcare Center, Chelsea Place, Cherrelyn Healthcare Center, Forest Street Compassionate Care Center,  Greenridge Place, Mesa Vista of Boulder, MorningStar Assisted Living and Memory Care of Littleton, and Orchard Park Health Care Center.

Thank you to our partners at Regis University and all of our assisted living and nursing home partners! 

Community and Elders Program Feature ~ Kroenke Sports

The employees from Kroenke Sports, as well as Avalanche players, have participated through the years with Bessie’s Hope for their Community Service Days. There are usually enough volunteers choosing the nursing home option for their service that we have multiple elder care sites receiving the Kroenke Joy!

Bessie’s Hope is appreciative for having been selected as a choice for their community service days. Thank you Kroenke volunteers for sharing hugs, love, laughter with the wonderful elders!!

These volunteers, as in all the Bessie’s Hope programs, receive the orientation/training prior to the elder care visit, so as to have a better understanding of the population and environment. In this way, both the elders and the volunteers are assured a meaningful, successful interaction.

To get your own workplace, club, church, civic organization, or any other group involved to have your hearts filled knowing that you have made such a difference in the lives of forgotten elders, click on: Community and Elders Program
