A pleasurable aspect volunteering at the United Hebrew Nursing and Rehabilitation facility was the opportunity to see the patients actively involved in meaningful therapeutic activities. In keeping the same schedule for several weeks it allowed me to briefly follow certain clients rehabilitation regimes. It enabled me to gain an understanding of the role of an Occupational Therapist in a skilled nursing facility (SNF) and rehabilitation setting. Therefore, I found it interesting seeing the strategies implemented in the sessions, such as, home hazard assessment and interventions before the patient is discharged. For instance, placing items on the floor and asking a high functioning patient how/if they could pick up the items if home alone.

It got even better, the whole idea of it being it a surprise dance is that no one of my family member 's or anyone I knew was able to go in there with me because it would defeat the whole purpose of it being a surprise. My uncle that would drop me off had to leave and come back to get me, it was a little hassle but he didn 't mind because I know he 'd do anything for me. My uncle always dropped me off at 1:00pm

At 1:40:00, Jean is seen hugging Maria, the housemaid who she once looked down on, stating to her, most likely in response to Carol’s carelessness as well as her newfound respect for Maria, “you’re the best friend I got.” Jean’s fall helped her realize how irrational and unfounded her disdain towards Maria and other minorities is, even if she had bad experiences in the past - the fact that Maria, despite
