Gateway Vista Partners with Lighthouse TIP Program to Empower Youth in Trades and Industry

Gateway Vista, a leading senior living community in Lincoln, NE, proudly announces its partnership with the Lighthouse TIP (Trades and Industry) program, aimed at providing hands-on training and education to youth in the community.

Gateway Vista Partners with Lighthouse TIP Program to Empower Youth in Trades and Industry

The Lighthouse TIP program seeks to equip youth, particularly those from low-income families, with the skills and opportunities to pursue fulfilling careers in various industries, including construction, nursing, culinary arts, and more. By offering real-world experience through on-the-job training, internships, and apprenticeships, the program aims to break the cycle of poverty and empower youth to achieve a better standard of living.

Four people are seated around a table with drinks and snacks in a sunlit room with a wheelchair and a floral arrangement visible in the background.Gateway Vista, known for its comprehensive senior living services, has enthusiastically joined forces with Lighthouse to host a 6-week program on its campus. Through this partnership, professionals at Gateway Vista are providing hands-on exposure to careers in the senior living industry, including assisted living, skilled nursing care, and rehabilitation services.

“We believe this program is a great way to introduce teens to new career paths,” says Mollie Cook, Director of Human Resources at Nye Health Services. “Many students have limited exposure to the depth of career opportunities available in the industry. By working directly with residents and experiencing the importance of quality care firsthand, youth gain a true understanding of the industry and become excited about potential pathways.”

The impact of the program has been immediate and profound. Following their participation in the program at Gateway Vista, several youth expressed eagerness to pursue careers in senior living and applied for open positions on the same day. One participant has already secured a position at Gateway Vista, demonstrating the program’s effectiveness in inspiring and empowering youth.

“At Lighthouse, we believe that ‘you can’t be what you can’t see,'” says Jeremy Trujillo, Director of the Trades/Industries Program at Lighthouse. “Through this program and our partnership with organizations like Gateway Vista, students actively engage in training, envision themselves in future roles, and forge meaningful connections with residents, creating a lasting impact on both students and seniors alike.”Lighthouse TIP Program - Gateway Vista Partnership

Enhancing Mobility: Exercises for Parkinson’s Awareness Month

Enhancing Mobility: Exercises for Parkinson’s Awareness Month

April is Parkinson’s Awareness and Support Month, a dedicated time to shine a light on this neurological condition and offer support to those affected. At Nye Health Services, we are committed to providing resources and assistance to individuals with Parkinson’s or Parkinson’s-like conditions to enhance their quality of life. In this blog post, Lani, a physical therapist at Nye Health Services, along with her volunteer Norma Jean, will share some exercises to improve mobility and strength for individuals with Parkinson’s.

Enhancing Mobility: Exercises for Parkinson’s Awareness Month

One of the cornerstone programs we offer at Nye Health Services is the LSVT Big program. While we can’t demonstrate the copyrighted exercises here, we’re excited to share some similar exercises that can benefit individuals with Parkinson’s or similar conditions.

1. Flicks for Fine Motor Skills

Fine motor deficits are common among individuals with Parkinson’s. To address this, we recommend “flicks” exercises. Hold your hands up and flick them out, exaggerating every movement. These exercises can help warm up your hands before challenging tasks like signing your name or buttoning up.

2. High-Energy Hip Movements

Big movements are essential for maintaining mobility and energy levels. Try hip movements like big stomps to the side and back. Avoid sliding your foot—exaggerate the movement to engage your hips effectively.

3. Functional Sit-to-Stand Exercises

Sit-to-stand exercises are not only functional but also great for strengthening and coordination. Practice sitting and standing with control, avoiding sudden movements. This exercise improves quad and glute strength and enhances balance.

4. Stride Length for Improved Mobility

Improving stride length is crucial for mobility. Take big steps forward and backward, ensuring you clear the ground with each step. Engage your core and maintain balance throughout the movement.

This month, as we recognize Parkinson’s Awareness, let’s empower individuals with Parkinson’s to enhance their mobility and strength through targeted exercises. If you have any questions or need further assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out to our campuses or come join our Parkinson’s support group at Nye Square. Together, let’s raise awareness and support for those living with Parkinson’s.
