04/21/17 C-T - On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, Chillicothe seniors were divided by their career pathway interest and visited a variety of businesses and industries in Chillicothe and surrounding towns. Depending on career interest, students visited some of the businesses listed above. Industry tours provide opportunities for students to gain exposure to potential careers and industries as part of the academic and career planning process.

A group of CHS Seniors interested in the health care field visited the Livingston County Health Center to take part in the Aging in Place Livingston County Senior Sensitivity Simulation. Accompanying the group were Grand River Technical School staff Vocational Counselor Debby Peery, Health Services Instructor Jamie Sullivan, and Vocational Resource Educator Joyce Mollohan.

"Younger people often have difficulty understanding what the normal sensory losses and changes in functional status mean to older adults. To overcome this experiential problem, a classroom assignment, the Senior Sensitivity Simulation exercise, was developed to engage students as active participants in their learning," per Ann Burchett, the Public Information Supervisor. Students were obliged to experience firsthand some of the many aches and pains as well as sensory losses commonly associated with the aging process. The aging simulation exercise individualizes the effects of physiological aging by forcing students to experience functional losses. "By doing so, it brings home the meaning of functional impairments to younger people in a much more effective way than even the best written chapter in a text or the most brilliant lecture could hope to achieve," said Burchett. Students visited stations on Hearing, Vision, Mobility/Balance, Dexterity and Senses.
