Stasha (front row)started working at COR almost three years ago. “Up until then, I’ve always worked in food service. I was both excited and nervous for the career change; however the last three years have made an everlasting impact on my life and the way I look at people.” Here is what Stasha would like to share about three of the people she supports.
Mary (back row, left) is an early riser that I get to see first thing every morning. Mary and I enjoy chatting over a cup of coffee about her family and what she has planned for the day. Mary also enjoys talking about her boyfriend and her job at MRCI. She likes to go on a walk in her neighborhood almost every day.
Deb (back row, center) always greets me with a big smile and ‘Hello’ every morning. Deb loves visiting about growing up on a farm and sharing her photo album. Deb enjoys helping around the house, making sure the dishes are done, and the kitchen is clean. You will almost always find Deb working on a puzzle in the sun room or spending time watering the flowers outside.
Heaven (back row, right) is the newest addition to our COR family. She recently graduated high school and is figuring out the best career choice for herself. She is full of energy and has been welcomed with open arms by her housemates. Heaven enjoys spending time on her phone, shopping, and going for walks.
If you see Mary, Deb, or Heaven out in the community, don’t hesitate to say hello and ask them about their day. They love visiting with others and sharing what is going on in their lives.
