I worked with the seniors at the community center during their line dancing and Tai Chi class.
Overall, a very educational and rewarding experience. We assisted in many aspects of the camp (side walking, horse maintenance, organizing crafts, cleaning up, etc.) as well as helped clean up and set up for the next day.
We went in for a second time to check another area of the retirement home for adequacy of their assistive devices and equipment. Again, everything went smoothly and the staff was kind and helpful in navigating and assisting us with our service when needed.
We helped with gentle movement class and toured and mingled with the seniors from the center.

Today I worked with the same swimmer in the first session that I had the previous week. I brought her goggles to borrow so she would be more comfortable putting her face in the water. Today she swam the entire length of the pool without taking a break. Watching the smile form on her face when she realized her accomplishment was the highlight of the lesson. She is excited about the progress she is making and is motivated to continue! The second swimmer I worked with is becoming more comfortable putting his face in the water and is improving his kick.
A great learning opportunity
I was able to help the players with some transfers and pumping and replacing tires. This week I assisted with reffing a scrimmage. Then, helped with transfers again and transporting equipment. I have a lot of fun working with the guys and enjoy helping them out with something that they love so much.
