Ridgeland ADN instructors, students bring hope to local nursing home

Holmes Community College Ridgeland Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) students, in conjunction with the organization Beams of Hope, participated in a community service project at a local nursing home. Beams of Hope is a grassroots organization that is committed to shining light on the need for quality healthcare and enhanced well-being for the aging and elderly.

During this Beams of Hope service project, students in healthcare-related schools connect with the elderly in varying settings to make friendship bracelets together. The elderly can then share the bracelets with loved ones or keep the bracelets for themselves as a reminder that they are not alone. Students were able to see first hand the impact that compassion and care can have on this often lonely and forgotten population.

Beams of Hope would like to thank Village Beads of Ridgeland and MadiPearse Collection of Madison for the donations to make this project possible. Beams of Hope was founded by ADN instructors Kim Manning, Dr. Tiffany Cox and Virginia Hart.
