  School-to-Career Work Force Development for Long Term Care
We are addressing the critical work force shortage in long term with, once again, a Bessie's Hope unique solution: Introducing the vast array of jobs and career paths to young people, who already enjoy the elders, and who already demonstrate compassion, empathy and respect for the elders.
Chelsea Place staff members explained their jobs and the required level of education to the Hampden Academy students, who took notes and asked great questions. After writing an essay, the students will have an opportunity to shadow their selected staff persons and tour the CU Geriatric Division at Anschutz Medical Center, which has partnered with Bessie's Hope.  More

Go to School-to-Care Work Force Development for Long Term Care for contact info to get involved.
