I had the wonderful opportunity to shadow and intern with English Rose Suites & b♦home Home care. I recently graduated from the University of North Dakota with a bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing. During my time at English Rose Suites, my hope was to gain experience in marketing as well as in all business-related careers within the company.
Through the time with English Rose Suites, I gained a deeper insight to the health care field, more specifically dementia care. I was honored to help plan and execute their promotional event marketing the national documentary, “Revolutionizing Dementia Care” which features English Rose Suites and seven other care environments from across the United States. I assisted in planning and helping the day of the event, as well as taking part as an audience member watching the documentary an d gaining knowledge and insight on dementia care during the discussion panel.
It was a very rewarding experience to see how important marketing events support business and how they can use their services to educate the community. It was very fulfilling to see community members, business professionals and families come together to become more educated on Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
Throughout my time at English Rose Suites, I was able to gain knowledge on all company functions by meeting with and shadowing the different leadership roles within English Rose Suites. It was a great learning experience to see how each individual role is so unique with their own duties and responsibilities; and how they all come together to create an exceptional work environment as well as making sure the residents are receiving the best care possible.
What I loved about English Rose Suites was the connections and relationships between workers, residents, and families. Overall my favorite part of the time I spent there was by far the residents. I created relationships with many of the residents and every day I couldn’t wait to talk to and learn more about them. For example, at one of the homes a resident and I would go on walks and talk about our lives and she would make me feel like the most important person in the world. How cool is that!
It was truly a blessing to be a part of something so special and amazing. English Rose Suites is truly one of kind, and there is nothing else like it. Everything I did throughout my internship was extremely rewarding and I am so thankful I was given the opportunity. English Rose Suites is surrounded with love and happiness for not just the residents, but every individual that steps in the home.
