Karen has always loved teaching art and is more than happy to share her talents with all the residents. In fact, she has stated that sharing her craft is one of her favorite parts of being part of the dear path community. She dreamed of teaching art and now she has the opportunity. Her great pleasure is giving people a sense of purpose, well-being and hope. Before coming to Deer Path, she felt “she was living under a black cloud and now there is sunshine in her life.” These days she says, “I get up with a smile!” And is eager to help residents at Deer Path.
Margie, a former school teacher, has put that training to good use. She has accomplished so much since she began residing at Deer Path. She set up a GED class that meets twice a week as well as a resource center to assist residents with questions about education and healthcare. Adding to her busy schedule, she also co-hosts bingo each Tuesday night with another resident and she hosted the first Geography Bee. Margie is spirited. In fact, she takes it upon herself to decorate the building for the holidays. Margie has said that since moving to Deer Path, she gets to serve people and overall her life has found purpose again.
