"One resident in particular had just come out of a showering experience that had put her into a state of sobbing, shivering, rocking, crying and moaning shock.

Without your training I may have been at a loss as I have never seen this resident so upset. " Rhonda Bowman, Ancaster, ON, Volunteer and Programs Coordinator, Chartwell
