There’s No Place Like Virtual Home (for Home Care Simulations): Feb CARE Connections

Read how SoN faculty and research staff worked with colleagues to develop a simulation for an increasingly important care setting in the February issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the School’s Center for Aging Research and Education.

Here’s an excerpt:

“It’s an eye opener” for nursing students to do home visits, “after a number of clinical hours in settings where we’re pretty much in charge,” says Jarzemsky. “This person is going to need to know how to function without you being there. How do you support them when you’re not in control?”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a profile of CARE Affiliate and SoN Professor Emerita Sarah Kruger, and news and updates relevant to older adult health. Read the issue here.
