“I love being the person everyone comes to for fun. I truly believe that SNF’s are not a place to come to die, but to live, and I help them realize they don’t have to curl up in a room by themselves until they wither away, but rather they can enjoy life to the fullest with whatever time they have left, or until they return home.”
– Cindy, Activity Director, Christian Park Health Care Center, Escanaba
