The sixth episode of the ‘Visits from the Heart’ series features Primrose Retirement Communities CFO Brian Morgan chatting with Jane B., an independent living resident of Primrose Retirement Community in Pueblo, CO. As our community in Pueblo celebrates it’s 10th anniversary, Jane is proud to be one of the first residents. Originally from Georgia, Jane is now proud to be an ambassador for Primrose and on the welcome committee.
Brian: You know, we’ve been through some challenging times during this situation. Can you share with me what’s kept you positive during this time?
Jane: Well for one thing, I have to keep talking to myself. Reminding myself how fortunate I am. There are a lot of people in a lot worse shape than I am. I have a wonderful place to live. I have wonderful family, friends and I think about all that. And people in other places don’t have it so good.
Brian: What’s been the hardest thing for you, Jane, over maybe this last month or so?
Jane: Not being with my family, my friends, being able to get out and go shopping, or socialize.
Brian: Has Primrose, have the staff there trying to keep you and the other residents positive?
Jane: Primrose has the most wonderful staff that anyone could ask for, and have had for the entire 10 years that I’ve been here. Everyone tries to do everything they can to make us comfortable and happy.
Brian: Tell me something over the last month or two, Jane, that’s put a smile on your face. Maybe its something one of our staff people inside the building have done?
Jane: They are just very helpful to anything, Brian, that you ask them about. And they just keep constantly trying to do things, figuring out things to help us through this.
Brian: What would be something you would say to our staff?
Jane: Thank you, thank you, thank you. They always have a smile their face. You never ask them for anything or to do anything that they don’t see that it’s done. And they just go out of their way to be helpful to you. They try to make things easier for us.
Brian: Well great. And its great to hear that our staff there are providing that support to you and the others there. What would be the first thing that you are going to do with your family when this situation is all over with?
Jane: Same as always, just get together, have good times together. Just being with them.
Brian: Thank you so much.
Jane: Thank you and I just want to say again that Primrose staff gets an A++ on everything. We just couldn’t have a better place to live.
