Patient Activities with Janet Leon

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.
