Additional Information:

This would be a great opportunity for students to connect with interesting people from all walks of life that are interested in staying connected with the world at large and learning new things or developing talents they have but never had the opportunity to explore. It would be greatly appreciated if RN''s in the NP class wanted to come in and do health related classes and check Bp''s etc. This group does not like being reminded that because of their age they are more prone to chronic disease. They are interested in staying alert oriented and independent and that is what I hope to accomplish by getting young professionals interested in Villa Vincente. I look forward to speaking with anyone who would like to come and work with the residents.
