What I Learned at Serenity

WHAT I LEARNED AT SERENITY

When I started working at Serenity over a year ago, I was very excited for my position as a communications intern. Though I probably would never have admitted it then, I remember jumping up and down once I received the word that I had been chosen as a summer intern!



From the beginning, I learned a number of things about my future career interests and was able to use my education for real work experiences. It was great to work on projects such as the Dilworth Health Fair, especially because I was interested in event planning. I also enjoyed having numerous opportunities to work on various projects, especially writing blog and news articles. But my favorite part about working at Serenity has always been working with the individuals who live here.


It’s been an eye-opening experience to be welcomed into the lives of the elderly. I may not have realized it a year ago, but now I truly understand that I am not only a part of their lives—they are a major part of mine. They have shown me how some of the simple joys in life can make a bad day into an amazing one. I have learned so much from them that has helped me learn more about myself. They have helped me develop into the person I had always wanted to be, and shown me so much more about life than I had known before meeting them.



I have sincerely enjoyed my time at Serenity. Needless to say, it’s been an extraordinary adventure that has helped me develop into a well-rounded individual. Thank you, once again, for letting me become part of this wonderful organization. I sincerely appreciate everything Serenity has done for me!

The greatest benefits senior residents enjoy at assisted living homes are independence and a healthy way of living. Many times we have seen new residents improve their health within the first few weeks of being under the care of assisted living homes.

Hi Denise,

I have a quick question for you regarding your site, but I couldn't find your contact information. Do you think you could send me an email whenever you get a chance?

Thanks,

This was really helpful! Now i have a standard of what to expect from a good assisted living in Edmonton! What are the main things to keep in check as we choose an assisted living facility?

Assisted living for seniors is a very good service. But assisted living for mentally ill is also important.
