I joined Goodwin House on June 10, 2020 during the middle of the COVID-19 epidemic. My introduction to the organization was not routine, but I still feel welcome and appreciative of the willingness of my fellow co-workers to reach out and offer help. My boss has been very helpful in acclimating me into the position, and I felt like a family member from the moment I started.

The culture at Goodwin House is very real, friendly and helpful. Most importantly, like a family, the staff really shows care and thoughtful consideration to the well-being and life quality of the residents. I see co-workers going out of their way to bring family members together with their loved ones, even coming in on Saturdays to supervise family visits. Joining the Goodwin House organization has been a great new chapter in my life, and I welcome anyone to come see this great place that preserves, protects and prolongs the quality of life of older adults.

Goodwin House is special, most notably because of its mission: "Support, honor and uplift the lives of older adults and the people who care for them." I love my job because Goodwin House cares about me and my professional growth. The tuition assistance benefit allows me to continue my education. I'm using it to obtain a degree in nursing.
