"It's always nice when a Friend stops by!"
I grew up in Saskatoon and moved to Calgary in 2001 to find work. I was in an administrative job at the University of Calgary until my first son was born and I decided not to go back to work. I have been a stay- at- home- mom for both of my boys, who are now 7 and 10, ever since. I also provide before and after school care for friend’s children, and volunteer at my children’s school.
In all of my positions, I’ve learned that my favorite role is that of a caregiver. The choir I am in performs at retirement communities and that is how I discovered how much I enjoy meeting seniors.
I love spending time with my senior friends from A Friend Indeed. I find it so rewarding knowing that I can brighten their day, or provide some comfort for them. However, I also think the visits are just as beneficial for me. We laugh and share stories and it is so interesting learning about their lives.
