Tell us about one way you get your neighbors to participate.
It’s called a birthday club. And it’s about 10 of us . . ., and so what we would do is get together and celebrate their birthdays. I cook all the food. I decorate this room up, and I have a little music going, and I ask them, “What do you want?” And that’s what I do. I make whatever they want to eat. I bake a cake, I do whatever, and we just celebrate. And so we come together, beautiful spirits come together and enjoy each other and celebrate each other and celebrate the birthday. That’s what I do in this room.
What does being a good neighbor mean to you?
Looking out for each other. I mean, my neighbor across the way from me, I tell her anytime she needs me, knock on my door and that goes for anybody that’s on my floor and they do it. . . . whenever I have something, I share with the residents here because like I said, sharing is caring.
But knock on my door whenever you need me. That’s what I feel a good neighbor is.
