ELDER HELP PEEL

A Testimonial by Valentina D.

” As a second-year student in the Social Service Worker Gerontology program at Sheridan College, I was recommended to have my field practicum at Elder Help Peel. I’m so happy that I listened to that recommendation as I have been able to have the best field practicum experience.

I’ve been able to have an amazing supervisor who I would report to and would give me tasks that helped me grow and refine my skills. I’ve been able to grow in confidence, interpersonal skills, professionalism and building trusting relationships with colleagues and clients at Elder Help Peel.

I’ve been able to join in on workshops, meetings, and presentations and even lead in them! I’ve been able to practice my communication skills and continuing to be vocal and be heard by others. I’ve been able to use my knowledge and experience from course work that relates to the field and apply it during my days at Elder Help Peel.

Elder Help Peel has helped me complete my field practicum in a way that makes me feel accomplished and more than satisfied to start my career in the field! ”
