This week is Direct Support Professional Recognition Week! Villa is incredibly grateful for all of our dedicated staff who work with our clients day in and day out. Hundreds of staff go above and beyond to ensure that Villas children, adults and seniors live successful and fulfilling lives. Today, we get to know Susie, who works at Villas Wynn House, a little better. The ladies at the Wynn House are fun and very loving, Susie commented. When I learned that the ladies enjoyed watching I Love Lucy, I knew I belonged! Susie noted that her favorite moments are the everyday moments shared with the ladies. The good times that we all share together make it all worthwhile! I love just dancing around the house with them. Its fun, great exercise, and we laugh a lot. Jackie, one of the Wynn House ladies, didnt hesitate when asked what she liked about Susie. Susie makes good breakfasts and we go for a walk every Friday, she said. She is there whenever I need her. With tears in her eyes, Susie responded, Truly, this job is very rewarding in so many ways. I feel very blessed. Thank you Susie and all of our Villa staff for taking care of our children, adults and seniors! #VillaStories #VillaStaff #DirectSupportProfessionalRecognitionWeek
