CSD Second Year Grad
Spring SemesterMy current placement is at a nursing home. My supervisor is amazing and has taught me so much about he changes and challenges that life brings you (especially as you age). Seeing the joy someone gets when you walk into their room or the appreciation of just a simple touch has truly impacted me. Though there are some sad days, they are worth it!
