This holiday season, the Ross Medical Education Center campus in New Baltimore, Michigan got to work spreading holiday cheer throughout their community! Their students came together for a holiday activity to send special thoughts and kind words of holiday cheer to the residents of a local senior living center, Village of East Harbor. The event was led by Office Assistants Christine Willer and Jodi Kaiser who both encompass the spirit of the season and giving!
Each class took time out during their break to decorate holiday cards, trim them with stickers and decorations, and write thoughtful notes to spread holiday greetings to all. The staff greatly appreciated their students for being so thoughtful and caring during the holiday season. Finally, the holiday cards were hand delivered to the Village of East Harbor just before Christmas day. Staff members at the senior living center were very grateful and appreciative to receive the bundle of cards. They expressed how great it was to have their residents, who are very special to them, being thought of during this holiday season as some residents are alone and have no visitors. They also knew that their residents would deeply appreciate the recognition and care expressed by the Ross campus and its students.
The Village of East Harbor sets the standard for senior living and care in the state of Michigan. With independent living apartments and cottages as well as the full continuum of care available right on campus, including assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care, East Harbor makes living well much simpler for their residents. As another healthcare facility, Ross students were excited to work with this organization and knew that many of the employees there were passionate about helping the most vulnerable people in their community as well. The staff, faculty, and students were thrilled to be a part of bringing some holiday cheer to these important members of their community.
