I have been pleasantly surprised at the dedication of the volunteers who work for this agency. I have had the pleasure of interviewing some of the elders that we serve, and most of the responses were well pleased with the services being rendered. I am presently interviewing seniors about the dining facility, quality of food, etc., and so far, have found no serious complaints.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the attention that the board volunteers and paid staff give to our inerviews and info gathered that lets us know what the seniors would like to have available in the way of activities, transportation, etc.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Interacting with the seniors- making them aware that they are valuable. I teach Irish Dancing, and, now & then, bring dancers to entertain, and sometimes, get some of the folks dancing
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
open to listening to the suggestions of otheres, even those newly serving
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
create a seven day center, well staffed and easily accessed
