Working at Fern Lodge has been a wonderful experience. As the Activities Assistant, I host a hymn sing once a week, assist patients on daily walks, update schedules, help in joy of movement classes, and go on outings with patients. I also really enjoy helping the patients bake cookies and spending time with the patients while I paint their nails. But more important than these activities, my job is to love and support the patients. I am certain that these lessons in care and responsibility will help lead me to success in my future.
At Fern Lodge, we come together as a family and help support one another. I work side by side with Robin Barben, the Activities Director, and I’m very grateful for her example. She has shown me how to have a positive mind and never let negativity get me down. I am learning how to express these qualities in my job every day.
Throughout my time here I have enjoyed learning about Christian Science and its healing power. It’s interesting how with just prayer you’re healed, and I’ve had personal experiences of healings. I am truly thankful to be here and to work with loving people. It has had a large impact on my life.
