I am a senior citizen and was hired by the day care center back in March. Unfortunately, after a few months of employment, I developed a serious medical condition that prevented me from being able to work for an extended period of time. Rather than write me off, the directors have worked with me every step of the way, even going as far as to hold a position open for me for when I am able to return. Even though I was only employed their for a short period of time, they have shown me more compassion than my previous employer of 12 years ever did.
It can be difficult for some of us “old people” who need to supplement our incomes to find employers that are this considerate. I just want the city to know that they are fortunate to have such a wonderful organization in their midst.
