Students from Lenoir City High School’s health occupation class were able to receive hands-on experience from the associates at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Lenoir City (TN). The students spent the day at the Alzheimer’s memory care community, learning in detail about patient care and the building’s day-to-day operation as part of an eight-hour college prep internship.
“We loved having the students visit!” says Maggie Devaney, the Lantern Program Coordinator at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence. “They asked such fantastic questions and seemed really interested in learning more about memory care and the senior healthcare field as a whole. I know they’ll make fantastic healthcare workers!”
