In the Beginning
When I first started out as a Lifestyle Director I was beyond excited and completely terrified. My community was still under construction, and I had the awesome opportunity to build an enrichment and lifestyle program (a culture really) from the ground up. This is often an advantage, but for someone new to the industry, I had little precedent or reference to rely on.
Naturally, in the beginning, I second guessed myself and had my doubts. What did I know about seniors and their interests and abilities anyways!?
