Article Chronicles UMaine Student’s Nursing Home Stay

An article in the Lewiston Sun Journal chronicled a weeklong stay at a Lewiston nursing home by University of Maine Nursing student Jana Kenney of Bangor, who wanted to experience firsthand what life is like for many geriatric residents before she graduates in December and heads to medical school. She said the experience, made possible by a Learning by Living program offered by the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, was life-changing and an indelible lesson about compassion. Portland television station WGME carried an Associated Press version of the story.
