CARING IS SHARING INSPIRATION FROM A TED TALKS

CARING IS SHARING INSPIRATION FROM A TED TALKS

14 year old American Jacob Cramer not only caught the attention of ‘Ted Talks’, but also that of the August 2016 group of PAB students during a class on understanding client needs.  After watching Jacob’s heart-warming story explaining his movement ‘Love for the Elderly’, whereby he receives and distributes letters of friendship to elderly people throughout the USA, the students unanimously decided to write their own letters.  The letters were sent to Donald Berman Maimonides Geriatric Centre (who PACC has a proud and long-standing affiliation with), and distributed to residents during their recreational activities.  They were well received by both staff and residents and the students commended for their thoughtfulness and creativity.  Just a few weeks into their training, it was incredibly heart-warming for the teacher to see such an enthusiastic and considerate initiative from the students.  Caring IS sharing!
