Mar 18, 2020 · While schools are closed, Madilyn, 10, Olivia, 9, Cameron, 7 and Jack France, 4, have been busy at work drawing pictures and writing well wishes to people in nursing homes around Massachusetts. Their cousins Annabelle, 10 and Danika, 8 are also helping with the cause. The American Society of Registered Nurses is committed to its members by offering awards, grants, fellowships, scholarships, graduate fellowships, education, conferences, journals, member benefits and other services that offer Nurses guidance, education, protection, and advocate for you as your voice. One of the initial tasks of a nursing home social worker involves meeting with newly-admitted clients to perform assessments. An assessment helps give you an overall picture of the client's life situation, taking into account all of the psychological, social and biological factors that may have an impact on the client's health and well-being.
