When I worked with Laura at Terrace View I experienced first hand her passion for helping others, especially the senior community. There was never a task too big or small she wouldn't do or help with. I leaned on her constantly for in building support while out in the community. She has a heart of gold and is typically the one person no one forgets about after having a short term stay at Terrace View.
