Internship Experience: Meals on Wheels
(UW-Stout News Center) – UW-Stout senior Sydney Timmerman is working on a survey of Dunn County Meals on Wheels recipients to help improve the service as part of an internship she is doing at the Dunn County Aging and Disability Resource Center.
As part of her semester-long position, Timmerman talks with county residents receiving Meals on Wheels at their homes and at congregate meal sites about how to improve the services. She also helps pack Meals on Wheels on Mondays at Tantara Apartments in north Menomonie.
“I liked initially that the internship was at the Dunn County Community Services building with human services,” Timmerman said. “I’ve been able to shadow a lot of the departments, including Veterans Service and behavioral health. I just shadowed crisis management and learned the process they must go through. I am interested in mental health a lot.”
