Roberta Place

(705) 733-3231 - 503 Essa Rd. Barrie, Ontario

Co-op Career Fair at Bear Creek Secondary School

Esther Smith, Roberta Place Resident and Resident Council President recently attended high school.

You may ask why? As Esther has long since finished her schooling, raised a family and now enjoys retirement and being a grandmother.

The reason was a brilliant invitation by nursing co-op student Haley Leigh Miller. Haley thought a first hand account by a resident would give a much better interpretation of life in long-term care to the students looking to start a career in the healthcare field. Haley’s thought was that Esther would be able to share her experiences living in long-term care as well as her impression of the benefits for both students and residents.

Roberta Place has a long history supporting the co-operative education program and has consistently accepted many co-op students whose career interests’ fall into one of the fields in long-term care: nursing, personal support worker, dietary, life enrichment, restorative care, or environmental services.

From all reports it was a successful morning with students expressing an interest in either volunteering or looking towards a future co-op placement in the upcoming semesters. Esther and the team at Roberta Place welcome all who had signed up - we'll see you soon!
