Tuscany Villa of Naples
Author: Madeleine Jones. I am in my third and final year of high school, and I am a Leadership Education Training (LET) 3 in Palmetto Ridge High School’s JROTC program! I am so proud to say that I am co-commanding the assist team this year with one of my best friends! Today we had the opportunity to visit the Tuscany Villa Assisted Living facility, and it was a very good experience for both myself and the rest of the team. We were given a tour of the building, including one of the vacant apartments, the dining area, the pool, and the movie theater. We were able to ask questions about the staff and facility, and possibly working there in the future. I was able to introduce myself and so were the other team members, and we brought candy around to the residents. I was very excited to get to know the residents because they all seem so sweet! I was able to interact one on one with some of the residents and learn about where they are from and what they did during their working years. I even met a woman whose son was also staying in the assisted living facility, which I thought was so cool! They seemed happy to talk about things that interested them and stories about their lives, and I was happy to listen. I am so glad we are having this team as a part of our program this year.
