Expanding our Activity Department

March 3, 2022
Canterbury Villa is happy to announce the newest member of the Activity Department, Mary Miller! Mary has been a nursing assistant for the past 36 years and worked at Canterbury as an aide for 14 years.

When it came time to retire, she didn’t want to quit altogether, so she applied for the activity position. Some of Mary's favorite moments at Canterbury were from dancing at the many proms our facility has had in the past. This year's prom theme is "The Roaring 20's," and Mary is so honored to be behind the scenes! Mary shared, "I never realized all our Activities Department did. We have a lot of fun, but we work hard!"

Mary brings such excitement to the job. Working in activities gives her more opportunity to talk with our residents and delve into their pasts. Mary says, "As an aide, we got to spend time with them, of course, but in activities, it's in a much different way. We're coming at them in a fun way instead of medically. They seem to open up more, and we find out what they were like in the past with the jobs they had, their hobbies and what they're good at."

Helping people has always come naturally for Mary, as she enjoys helping friends and family. She took care of her mother and her grandchildren throughout the years and now takes care of her father-in-law.

Canterbury Villa is very lucky to have her. We're looking forward to many more years with Mary!
