From classroom to nursing home


Staff at our Holy Cross nursing home in Sunderland are supporting the future career plans of 15-year-old student, Jennifer, by welcoming her for a period of work experience.

Jennifer is studying at Christ College but, this week, has been observing staff in a range of roles, helping out with activities and chatting to residents. She hopes to gain an insight into all elements of care provision as she works towards her ambition of training to be a doctor.

“I’m really enjoying it,” said Jennifer. “This is the first nursing home I’ve visited but everyone is so friendly and lovely and they’ve made me feel so welcome. I’ve learned a lot by watching and shadowing some of the staff. I’ve also loved chatting to the residents – everyone has led such interesting lives.”

It’s been a pleasure having you at Holy Cross, Jennifer. Good luck for the future.
