Christmas crafts to help recruit future care providers

“Good Sam has let us come in and see the assisted living patients, the memory care patients and now the independent living patients,” Hill said. “It’s nice to have our students see the different levels of care opportunities within the health care system,” said Molly Hill, CTE Intro to Human Services instructor.
