How long have you been working at LifePath?
What are your responsibilities?
My responsibilities vary. As Executive Assistant, I help plan and prepare for meetings and events; I take minutes at staff meetings, make phone calls, send emails, and assist in various ways with other projects.
As Office Administrator, I order supplies, make labels for different programs, do numerous mailings, update certain databases, put packets together for programs, do copying, run CORI checks, make sure office equipment is in working order (and coordinate repairs when there’s a problem), cover the switchboard when needed, and more.
I help with projects for a variety of programs. Not too long ago, for example, I helped the SHINE Program by creating labels and putting packets together for a counselor training. On a regular basis, I assist with the Caregiver's Support Group by mailing out the meeting notice every month, which details the dates of meetings and information about the upcoming agenda. And right now I am doing a large mail merge project for the HIPAA Business Associates Agreement and Letter for our Client Services department.
I also assist the Director of Massachusetts Home Care throughout the year by compiling and keeping track of registrations for events, printing, copying, putting packets together, etc.
What does a typical work day look like for you?
Typical? My work days are never “typical.” Because of my various responsibilities, my duties can, and usually do, change daily. I can be doing anything, from any one of the duties listed in the “responsibilities” section above to running errands, hooking up a telephone headset, adjusting the air conditioning in a wing, straightening the conference rooms, going to off-site storage to oversee the shredding of documents, and even changing paper towels. I hope I don’t sound like I’m complaining because I’m not! I love the fact that my duties are so varied. I am never bored and it makes my day go by fast. Some days, I don’t know what I might be doing next! You’ve heard the saying, “Never a dull moment,” right? That fits my job to a “T,” and I love it!
What’s your favorite thing about your role?
I work for an agency that takes care of people in need. So, I guess my favorite thing is that I kind of “take care of” the people in the office who take care of the people outside the office.
What has been your most memorable moment at LifePath?
I think my most memorable moment was walking into the building on my first day of work and feeling like I was walking into a building full of friends. My second is when that feeling proved to be true.
What does LifePath’s mission mean to you?
The mission is very important to me. Taking care of the elderly and disabled has to be one of the most satisfying and rewarding jobs there is. The employees of this company strive to help others by caring for, or managing the care of, people in need. What could be better than that?
Would you like to add anything else?
My co-workers are some of the most caring, compassionate, and friendly people I have ever met, and, although it’s their “job” to be compassionate and care for the clients, it also carries over into the office environment. I am always greeted in a friendly way and treated with respect by everyone here. I have never felt so appreciated in any job before I became an employee of LifePath.
