Paula has the perfect personality to work with memory challenged residents. She is upbeat, caring, and provides close attention to each and every one of her residents. She likes to help be her residents “eyes and ears,” in the event they cannot express what they want. She prides herself on knowing her residents well enough to sense their needs.
