LIVE TWICE THE STORY
Enjoy these miracle moments of connecting and caring
The first senior I every loved was Grandma Celia. During summer visits to her home, I learned how to iron the pillowcases every week. More importantly, she taught me the meaning of family and the importance of building memories with loved ones. God gifted me with servant’s heart; what better way to use my gift than to care for seniors who paved the path for us and deserve only the best of care and utmost respect. Whenever the day is tough, I walk the community and am reminded why I do my job. Whether it’s singing “This Little Light of Mine,” listening to a resident play piano or just chatting, I walk away feeling rejuvenated.
The first senior I ever loved was Grandma Eva. I grew up an only child raised by her and my mother, Felisha in a Christian household in the South Valley where we farmed and raised animals. We bonded over home-cooked meals three times a day. Grandma was my best friend. It was no surprise then that I knew from a young age I wanted to work in Senior Living and help seniors live the best possible life. In turn, they teach me is to make each day count and not to let the negative energy of others affect your day.
“The first senior I ever loved was my grandfather, John. A renowned Erasmus Scholar from Buffalo, he devoted his life to faith, family and education. His experiences as a Naval Officer in China during WWII sparked his lifelong curiosity about the world and his passion for service, two things I admire. I spent summers in Maine at my grandparents’ second home on the beach. We walked our cove daily, searching for the “perfect stone.” Summers were the only time I saw my grandfather, an elegant man, always well-dressed, wearing tennis sneakers, always with high socks—and that’s how I gave him his nickname, “Sneaker.”
