What an honor to be part of SCI! In my 40-plus years of nursing I have never worked for a greater company. The love and care they give is like no other I have ever seen or been a part of. They are always dependable, having every recourse available for people in need, including their families, right down to their pets. What they give to our seniors is beyond words.

The Senior Companion Program is near and dear to my heart. It is a very successful program serving two senior populations. I get to work with an amazing group of seniors who choose to give back to their community by improving the quality of life of seniors in need of assistance. Through the work of all of SCI’s amazing departments I get the satisfaction of being a part of an organization that strives daily to make a difference in people’s lives.

My love for seniors is probably due to the close relationship I had with my grandmother. My hope is to continue to learn from our seniors, listen to their concerns, sorrows and joys. I hope to be an inspiration to them as so many have been to me.

When people over the age of 55 in Savannah expressed a desire for academically rigorous educational programming to enrich their retirement years, I was pleased to join SCI to establish The Learning Center. TLC is a place where the humanities come to life through courses, lectures, special learning programs, and educational travel. TLC has become an extended family of learners where each member benefits from the rich life experiences and knowledge of the others, and all enjoy the friendships that result from common encounters in the classroom.

email: jtaylor@seniorcitizens-inc.org

I was born to parents who are from the WWII era so I have always been around older people. The baby-boomer generation has always held a special place in my heart. We owe them the dignity and respect that they earned by paving the way to the life that we live today. I can see that SCI is a place that holds the same values that I do about seniors. As soon as I visited, I knew that this was the place for me.
