Nursing students at University of New Brunswick - Humber College go through a variety of clinical placements in their 4 year program.
This clinical placement with CANES Community Care helped them explore health and wellness in a community setting. Most of our clients for CANES are still living in their own homes and apartments within the Etobicoke, Brampton, Malton and Woodbridge areas. So quite often, it can be difficult to promote our programs and services to everyone digitally as not all CANES Clients have a computer. However, thanks to social media outlets like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, our wellness programs like Friendly Visiting, or even Transportation can be promoted to reach peoples phones who may be looking for services for their older parents.
The 4th year students were responsible for developing a health promotion message/presentation for a specific population within the community, in this case the older adult. Below are promotional and educational materials that were developed by the students. The students focussed there research on:
1. Ride Connect Transportation Program
2. Friendly Visiting, and Medication Management
3. Home Safety
4. Mental Health and Wellness
5. Health and Physical Fitness
