Maureen

Full transcription coming soon. The entire audio interview is available above.

Maureen is a college student who works at an assisted living facility.

“It was hard not seeing, like, our favorite [senior living] residents that we’d see like every day while we’re serving, um, but now we keep–there’s more appreciation with the residents…they leave like little notes, or like, give us candy.”


Interview highlight:

“It was hard not seeing, like, our favorite [senior living] residents that we’d see like every day while we’re serving, um, but now we keep–there’s more appreciation with the residents now; they leave like little notes, or like, give us candy or whatever. And it’s not like they weren’t appreciative of us before, it’s just that they’re more appreciative of what we’re doing now, since it’s hard for them to leave the house, they’re, I think this is where they get food unless they have like resident–um, family bringing like groceries and bring them food.”
