Stephanie's warmth, enthusiasm, creativity and intelligence was reflected in all her activities with the seniors where my mother was a resident. She respected, encouraged and openly welcomed the opinions, ideas, and responses of all who attended her groups. Each activity was well thought out and provided creative, intellectual and/or just plain fun experiences for the attendees. She was, in no uncertain terms, my mother's favorite!!
One of the activities I attended with my mother, was a poetry group. Stephanie chose works by a particular poet that evoked thoughtfulness, reflection, and meaning. She asked stimulating questions that immediately engaged all who were in the group and each participant was made to feel respected, listened to and welcomed by her.
Stephanie was well-liked at the assisted living community where my mother was. She was a favorite of the residents, they looked forward to her groups, loved it when she was there. Many times I heard residents say how hard she worked and how lucky they felt to have her there!
