Meet Venera Kostadinov
What I love about The Maplewood is that it is like family. I’ve been in the United States for over ten years and at The Maplewood for nearly the same time, and everybody accepts and understands me.
I love getting to know each of the residents and listening to their stories. And as I get to know them, I learn how they like their room kept.
And just like a family, if the nursing assistants are shorthanded, I will jump in and help deliver meals. We help each other out because that’s what family does. I love spending time with my own husband, children and grandchildren, and when I am here, I love feeling like part of this family, too.
