I loved working under Balfour. They were an established and comfortable place. “A well oiled machine”. This brought comfort for me because I like structure, organization, consciousness, and most of all, helping people. I had a strong and fast pace that was recognized early on there. The biggest take from Balfour was my calling. Getting to know and care for the residents gave a surprising purpose I did not expect to gain. Each resident was receptive and welcoming to me as I was to them. They knew I wanted to keep and maintain a safe and healthy environment for them. I treasure my time there.
