As part of the trip, Lizzie also had the pleasure of a tour around the pretty UNC campus, the fascinating and immense Carol Woods Retirement Village, was impressed by the creativity of the Seymour Centre for Seniors, and also visited the inspiring Charles House Daytime Eldercare Center in Carrboro. Lizzie would like to give a big thank you to the organisers for their amazing hospitality during the trip.
