PEER graduates at DuBois Nursing Home

Thirteen residents of the DuBois Nursing Home were recently honored for their volunteer service in recognition of National Volunteer Week, April 7-13. All residents completed a 10-hour training session to become Pennsylvania Empowered Expert Residents with the Pennsylvania Department of Aging’s Ombudsman Program. They learned to advocate for themselves and their fellow residents and concluded a minimum of one year’s service at DNH. Pictured from left, first row, are PEERs Bob Roush, Joanna Frederick, A.
