I believe Jose has worked at Victoria for 10 years as a CNA. He takes pride is the skilled nursing facility and wants all the short term patients and long term patients feel at home. He noticed that there weren’t very many outdoor spaces for patient to go so he decided to create outside gardens, benches he made from his own hands and patio area around the facility. He also made a wising well to give seniors hope. He used his own time personal resources with help of the maintenance team to give senior special places outdoors. He said I just put myself in their shoes and ask what I can do to make their lives better.
