CINDY: HOUSEKEEPING STAFF
“Going to work for Senior Community Services has been really good for me,” shares HOME program employee, Cindy. “I don’t think I could ever go somewhere and work eight hours a day at a desk. That’s just not me.”
Cindy began a career cleaning homes for Senior Community Services in 2016. With ample experience in indoor cleaning and a compassionate heart, Cindy proved the perfect candidate for the job. While she specializes in indoor cleaning, Cindy’s favorite part of the program is the opportunity to connect with people and be a help. Cindy shared, “I really enjoy this job. It’s a way to show love.”
One of Cindy’s regular clients, Gina, raves, “You meet wonderful people through Senior Community Services. Cindy has been the best part of joining the HOME program.” Before working with Senior Community Services, Cindy owned and operated her own cleaning business and, for a time, cleaned and cared for her parents, who have since passed on.
“I understand what it’s like not to want help,” shares Cindy, whose parents felt hesitant about accepting her assistance. “But what I like about [the HOME Program] is that they’re helping people stay in their homes.”
A Minnesota native, Cindy has lived all over the United States, everywhere from Arizona to Michigan to Washington. Upon her return to her roots, Cindy hoped for a career that would not only support her financially, but would allow her to exercise her talents and grow as a person. “Senior Community Services affords me to be out with people and do what is one of my gifts,” says Cindy.
