day 7- a picture of someone/something that has had a big impact on you

I have had my worst moments and best moments at this building. It is a very emotional place. I either LOVE it or HATE it. There is really no inbetween. I started working with the elderly population because I was so interested in Alzheimer’s disease. I can not even tell you how many reports I did on it growing up. My Grandma Jenks had Amzleimer’s Disease. Working with elderly people takes a special person. Turns out I was one of those special people. I am kind of sad at times I do activities now because I really miss taking one on one care of the residents. I love them though. the other day we were reminiscing about Christmas and we were all in tears. Happy tears! That happens alot! I wiss I could fully explain how I feel about Arbor Village….

I am a conservative, slightly old-fashioned crazy girl. I love to read, write, sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, do crafts, enjoy nature, take my car off-roading, ride my bike, and just stay busy. I sometimes say I want a lazy day BUT I hate not having anything to do which means I frequently stretch myself too thin. I am the Life Enrichment Director at an assisted living facility. I love being around the elderly population. They are such amazing people who have so much to offer and teach. I also love the little guys too... I love being around kids, especially my nieces and nephews! In December of 2019 I was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation that quite literally may have been a life changing diagnosis. I went from feeling like I was crazy. To maybe having answers.
