A little more from Sarah:
“I value working within an organization that encourages the cultivation and fostering of relationships. Every day, I take multiple opportunities to connect with residents and staff through conversation, laughter and mutual respect. I am forever changed, for the better, because I have worked at Meadowlark Hills.”
“The best time of year at Meadowlark Hills is Christmas time. Our decorations are outstanding, spirits are high and there are great treats to eat! For me, holidays are about being with the people you love and I get to do that every day when I come to work!”
