What do you love most about your job?
Working with senior citizens by reflecting about their life events is extremely rewarding. It’s one thing to learn about history, but another to hear about it first-hand. Aging adults’ life-stories abound with reflections all the way back from World War I and II.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best feedback received from a customer, is that they feel “validated”. Loneliness abounds at several nursing and retirement communities. If I can thank and validate any or as many adults as I can, I will be so happy. Every person needs to be commended for their life’s work.
