Health & Social Care Students Visit Dovehaven Care Home

Our level 2 Health & Social Care students visited a local Dovehaven residential home, they put into practice their classroom learning and completed assignment work.

They ran activities such as gardening, playing dominoes, painting resident’s nails, learning card games, painting, creating bunting for the Queen’s jubilee and decorating the garden with handmade daffodils.

Some of our students were offered jobs and were a great asset to the college. The visit has started a great new professional relationship, enabling many more of our future learners a new work experience journey in spinal injuries, mental health, medicine and more.

The residents were excited for our students to arrive and it was rewarding to see our learners thrive in a practical and realistic environment. The students learned so much and enjoyed such a positive experience.

Cath Hay from Dovehaven said: “I enjoyed spending time with them and they were so responsive and positive, they are an absolute credit to you and the college 😊 I was incredibly impressed with how they were with the residents and to see so many smiling faces on both sides, including my own!!

"As we discussed I am really eager to talk to more health and social care students to see how Dovehaven can help them with their futures in care”.
