LIFE was blessed this week as PT and OT students from Alvernia University and Bellarmine University joined us to serve seniors on the Southside. Students, along with their professors, visited seniors in their homes to work with them. They educated them on overall health, showed them ways to maximize movement, minimize pain, exercise joints, and cared for wounds.
The visit was a long-awaited one as it has been three years, due to COVID-19, since the group made a visit.
The relationship between Alvernia University and Bellarmine University is a mutually beneficial one. LIFE is always looking for ways to offer quality services to its seniors, while these universities are looking for organizations to offer their services to so that students can get the experience they need.
We at LIFE would like to thank these universities for always remembering us and for the time, energy and money they put into offering quality service to our seniors.
