Jordan Ehler "Doc" rocks! 05/05/2014 06:50 PM
Brian Robinson By not participating in the nursing home visitation program you are missing out on so much in your time at whitewater. Nowhere else in the country is this program offered at a college and nowhere else will you find a person like "Doc" to lead you. The residents that you will meet at the nursing homes will change your life and who knows by going to the nursing homes it could change your future. I used to visit, became a coordinator and now i am the Activity Director at one of the nursing homes in the program. If anything just give it a shot, you won't regret it!!! I sure haven't. 09/10/2006 06:57 PM
Marilyn Soderquist It is a joy to see this program in existence. Friend To Friend is much like your program. Friend To Friend began in 1974 in Des Moines WA (a mile southwest of SeaTac Airport). We recruit and match volunteers (in 5 Puget Sound counties) to visit one-on-one with residents in 270+ Nursing Homes, Assisted Living and Retirement Homes. I am always curious to hear about other visitation programs to Nursing Homes, Assisted Living and Retirement Homes. Keep up the good work.

amanda ramsey Being apart of the nursing home visits at Ridgestone brightened every Tuesday for me and my resident. Knowing that you have the power and capabitity to make someone laugh and make their day makes me as wonderful as I am. I enjoy my resident and I can't wait until the fall to go back and visit. 05/04/2005 02:46 PM
Sarah Marcet Being a nursing home coordinator was the best thing I could have done with my collegiate life. Its been almost a year since my last visit and I miss the program very much. I hope to one day design a program like this at the high school I work at. See you at On Campus Day!!! 03/23/2005 10:33 AM
