Carriage Hill Partners With UNH Recreation Management & Policy Department
By Sara Nadeau
Carriage Hill Assisted Living is partnering with the UNH Recreation Management and Policy Department by hosting six undergraduate students in the Therapeutic Recreation program who will obtain clinical experience by working with residents. Each student will be assigned to a resident to develop a specific, individualized program to meet the residents’ needs. This partnership will mutually benefit the students and residents and is part of Carriage Hill’s mission to partner with the local community.
Examples of the recreation and leisure related goals that the students and residents will work towards include learning how to use adaptive equipment for recreation activities, improving physical fitness levels and balance, working on memory-related tasks, learning how to use technology to communicate with family and increasing socialization as new residents of the Carriage Hill community. Carriage Hill residents are looking forward to this opportunity to assist students with their clinical studies and to benefit from the knowledge the students have gained through their studies. This semester’s program will start in early February and continue through May on each Wednesday evening with direct resident participation from one to two hours per session.
