In the Rehab Unit at the Fairport Baptist Home, Alicia Vann is soaking up new relationships with residents and new lessons from the therapists on staff. Alicia is a junior at St. John Fisher College and she's set on a career in physical therapy. She wants to work with seniors and older adults.
"I had a really strong relationship with my grandmother so when she passed away I continued to volunteer and work with people the same age," she says. "I love the stories that people have to tell, that's the biggest thing. I love hearing what they have to say."
"She's done a great job so far," says Rehab Manager Jennifer Profetta. "We've enjoyed having her. She's got a great personality. I can tell that she's definitely going to be good at the field."
Alicia's inspiration is her late grandmother. It's a loving bond that she gets to renew with the seniors she meets every day.
