13 residents of the DuBois Nursing Home Complete Training Session

Recommended Posts

Thirteen residents of the DuBois Nursing Home were recently honored for their volunteer service in recognition of National Volunteer Week, April 7-13.  All residents completed a 10-hour training session to become Pennsylvania Empowered Expert Residents (PEER) with the Pennsylvania Department of Aging's Ombudsman Program.  They learned to advocate for themselves and their fellow residents and concluded a minimum of one year's service at DNH. 

Ombudsman Jeanne Urban presented each PEER with a copy of N. Jean Dobay's book, Turning a Warehouse into a Community: A Story of Humanity.  It is the story of how one resident's ideas sparked action that forever changed the nursing home industry and created a true home for 450 long-term care residents.

Programs and services of the Agency are funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Inc., Mature Resources Foundation, and local and consumer contributions.
