I have the satisfaction of working for an agency that takes such pride to ensure that the emotional and physical needs of the residents are not just met, but are exceeded.

"I love working with our residents because they are always honest with their feelings towards you and sometimes make you take a good look at yourself. They are always so appreciative of everything that is done for them or given to them even though it may be just a simple piece of candy.
