Here is our interview with Karla:
•What do you enjoy most about your job?
-I enjoy helping others and making even the smallest difference in their day. I enjoy learning about everyone’s hobbies & interests & how varied their lives & experiences are.
•what do you enjoy most about NPSL?
-My favorite part about NPSL is when we incorporate fun, simple decor,activities or celebrations. For example the tree lights outside, the Saturday music (by one of our residents,btw) or the popcorn for the movie showings. Small things like that bring the place together and really make it feel like a home.
