UNE in the News

UNE’s Learning By Living program mentioned in 'Bangor Daily News'

UNECOM’s Living By Learning program was mentioned in a December 6, 2013 online article by the Bangor Daily News.

The article features Kara Janes, a former participant in the Learning By Living program, which aims to foster a better understanding among health care providers of what life is like in a nursing home. The program was designed and piloted by Marilyn Gugliucci, Ph.D., director of Geriatrics Education and Research.

Janes, two years ago, as a social work student at the University of Maine, participated in the UNE program by living in a Waterville nursing home for 10 days.  While there, Janes was wheelchair bound and had oxygen tubes strung around her face.

Janes now manages At Home Downeast, a program on the Blue ill Peninsula that helps elderly people remain in their homes.
