I love the seniors in memory care. We tell stories and I make them laugh. And even if they don’t remember the next time I’m there, I don’t mind. I can tell them stories and make them laugh all over again.
I love the connections I’ve made here at Saint Therese. I lose so much time when I talk with residents; they have such great stories to share. Volunteering gives me a new appreciation for people.

I love being able to offer a cup of tea or coffee and something to eat to new families; encouraging them to make themselves at home when they’re visiting family at Saint Therese. These small acts are means to comfort and relaxation.
Working at Saint Therese at St. Odilia feels like coming home every day. The relationships I build with our residents is so rewarding and fulfilling.
