In Their Own Words

There’s nothing quite like hearing what a place is like from the people who make it home. Here are a few words from some residents.

“I’ve volunteered in various areas for the past 40 to 50 years, so it seemed a natural fit when we moved to Capital Manor. I think the most important factor is the inner satisfaction, knowing that what I do is helping someone. It doesn’t matter if it’s visiting, assisting with some computer problem, or just listening to their stories. I feel there’s no time wasted when a service is given.”

“I’m grateful to be a member of the Capital Manor community. Being involved in several committees is a way to pay back and contribute to the well-being of my fellow residents. I never expected to be involved in anything so gratifying at this stage of my life. Each day brings new and challenging experiences. The days aren’t long enough anymore. It’s great!”
Paul C.

 
“I volunteer at Capital Manor because I love working with people. There are many opportunities to be involved in ways that make a big difference to people. My life is greatly enriched by the experience of working with others who share the goal of providing stimulating experiences for residents, and also for being asked to give valuable feedback to staff and the board. I appreciate finding that some of the skills of organization, listening and leadership that were part of my pre-retirement years are still of value to others today. It feels good, and it gives great meaning to life.”
