By Marie Gonzales: An exchange student and a second year nursing student from the UK.
The two weeks placement I had in Elma Koti was one of the most memorable and unforgettable experiences throughout my stay.
It was not that easy to locate and quite a bit of a travel from the city but thanks to Kaisu, who has been so patient and accommodating towards giving me a lift to and from Elma Koti.
The staff overall were absolutely amazing and wonderful. Everyone was helpful, caring and patient.
The residents who I looked after were lovely and nice too. My experience helped me become more open-minded and much of a better person which can be helpful towards my future career.
Obviously I would not end my statement without thanking Outi for giving me the chance to experience this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Thank you to each of you (you know who you are) for guiding me and welcoming me with support and to mention especially, I loved all the cooked meals you all have provided for me I really enjoyed it.
Definitely coming back to see you all again in the future! Kiitos!
