Glimpses of the Heart
The most important thing I’ve learned from seniors is to always stay focused on each other.
For every love story I hear, for every 60-year marriage I see, there is always a story of hardship behind it, whether global war or personal trial. It was their commitment to each other that made them stronger, together, and got them through.
When I was just three years old, an elderly neighbor would take me to the livestock auction.
We had a wonderful time buying cows and horses, then loading them up in a huge cattle truck. He was the first to show me the wisdom, courage and zest for life that seniors have. I’ve been a geriatric nurse for 27 years now, and had the pleasure of many more such relationships. Our elders gave us everything we have; we owe them nothing less than wonderful care and compassion.
Director, Community Relations
More than a decade ago, I entered senior care in the activities department, and discovered I’m
gifted at communicating with the memory-impaired and helping them find joy daily. I learned how precious each senior’s story is, and I value the wisdom and ethics they bring to the world. With experience in skilled nursing, long-term care and assisted living, I’m eager to educate families and guide them through transition. The need for support is so great.
