Zena Sawalaga, volunteer, Avondale Lifestyle Community.

As a young girl, whenever anyone asked me what I wanted to do when I grew up, I would say a nurse or a physiotherapist—I wanted to help heal people. But my life path changed and I didn’t follow through with my plan.
When I retired, I knew this would be my time to give of myself to others, no matter how small.
I love being with the residents, whether it be to have a chat, to try to make them smile, to play games, to read or to help with feeding. They have given more to me than I can to them. All the staff have been friendly and a great help to me.
Avondale Lifestyle Community has been a blessing to me, and I know I was meant to be here and hopefully for a long time yet.
