What drew you to senior living?

“I have spent my entire career working with seniors.  It all started with volunteer hours needed for one of my college classes which led me to a local nursing home. I called Bingo, read newspapers, helped with feeding, and just talked with the seniors. The smiles and the brightness in their eyes when they saw me coming made my day. Thirty years later, I am still addicted to the feeling I get when I can make my senior residents happy.”
