What makes your job satisfying and worthwhile?
Being able to work with the residents so closely and getting to know them. As well as having a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day in knowing that I have helped make a difference in their day and overall care that our dept. provides.
The environment and the people I work with. The community of LHCC is very kind, comforting, caring and familiar. This makes my job very satisfying and worthwhile.
I like being able to make a difference. There are always new challenges and opportunities to improve my workplace and the facility as a whole.
