Summer is here and it is the perfect time to plan special programs for the older adults whom you are working with. The Activity Assistant students at Drake Medox College have put together a number of ideas for sizzling fun this summer season!
Hawaiian BBQ– Invite your clients on a Hawaiian adventure with a Luau BBQ. To keep your guests cool, serve a sparkling pineapple punch and fresh watermelon slices. Everyone can don hula skirts and Hawaiian shirts and the courtyard can be decorated with bright flowers and tiki masks made in advance by the participants.
The number one question Drake Medox College advisors are asked is “will I get a job after graduation?”
We understand that although students may come to us for industry leading training and education, what they really want and expect is a good job after they achieve their diploma.
So, why are Drake Medox Health Care Assistant grads able to secure jobs in the field at a consistent rate of 97%?
On March 16th, we were honored to host graduation for over 150 Health Care Assistant, Community Support Worker and Activity Assistant graduates and their families and friends. What an amazing celebration for all in attendance!
Our valedictorians Christina and Harsharan shared inspiring messages of their own personal journeys, and how proud they were to achieve this new milestone with their classmates.
Our Commencement speaker was Mr Daniel Fontaine, CEO of BC Care Providers Association. He welcomed our recent graduates to the industry, and reassured everyone that the job demand today is very strong, and will continue to grow in the years ahead.
All indicators are pointing in the same direction….
