Would you recommend Partners in Care/Frederick?

by Shannon B. (Administrator for this Organization) (October 20, 2015)
My name is Shannon. I live in Frederick Maryland. I came across a brochure for "Partners in Care" while at the library. I had recently left my job as a Project Manager and was taking a summer hiatus before going back to work. My career path was no longer fulfilling and I desired something more meaningful. As I spent the summer preparing my eldest daughter for college, I prayed for God's direction in my life. I wasn't sure what to pursue, but I knew that I would recognize the path when I stumbled upon it. Since I was used to working, I sought to keep myself busy. I continued volunteering at church, but wanted to do more. Imagine my surprise when stumbling upon Partners in Care. They needed drivers to help senior citizen with errands. The membership was free to seniors so I joined. Clearly the best decision I ever made. Can't explain how spending quality time with the elderly has given me such joy! Our members are healthy, young at heart and wise. Yep I have found my purpose!
