Each class participates in an outdoor or indoor retreat in the fall/winter. The class gets a day off from all clinical activities/call responsibilities to encourage team-building, and just have some good old fashioned fun! The class spends quality time together, mostly OUTDOORS, working as a group to attain similar goals on fun ground challenges.

This year, our retreat was located in the beautiful wooded area of Irons Oaks in Olympia Fields set on 40 acres of nature preserve. Some of the activities included in the days events are a 1,000 square foot Climbing tower and High Ropes Challenges. Additionally, the seniors receive information on Career Planning, CV Preparation, and Credentialing at the conclusion of the day's festivities.

Trips Abroad

Many of our residents have traveled abroad to provide care in underserved areas through our community outreach programs. 

These past couple years, we have had residents travel to Guatemala, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic! The families and communities are appreciative and grateful of all the wonderful care the residents provide, as are we.
