At our Sagora Senior Living communities, our Lifestyle Directors bring joy, life and vibrance to the lives of our residents through various events, outings and activities. As you can imagine, COVID-19 has presented many challenges for our Lifestyle Directors with canceled outings, social distancing and a stronger need to bring more joy to our residents than ever before.
For our Independent Living Lifestyle Director at Landon Ridge Alamo Ranch in San Antonio, Texas, Brittanie Gathright, not only was she ready to rise to the challenge, she thrived. “COVID-19 has reaffirmed everything about my career choice,” she said. “In the midst of the chaos, I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to serve as the ‘family member’ who visits, to have the chance to make our residents smile, to take a walk with a resident who needed fresh air and continue to learn facts about them and their life that I perhaps wouldn’t have had the opportunity to ask or learn about them without COVID-19.”
While people are being called to socially distance themselves, our communities have never felt closer. Through quarantine, our residents and associates have had extra time and opportunities to strengthen their bonds as our entire world continues to face this pandemic together.
Whether it’s a drive-thru trunk-or-treat event, a scenic drive through a pumpkin patch or Oktoberfest celebrations, our Lifestyle Directors like Brittanie have truly gone above and beyond to place our residents first while being sources of joy, strength and emotional support.
