Life Enrichment Coordinator
My name is Linda Buck. Before I came to Cheshire I was a supervisor of housekeeping at a senior complex for 12 years. I decided at the age of 47, I wanted more. I knew I wanted to work within the health care field, so I went back to school and got my Continuing Care Aide and 1 month later I got the job at CHOS. That was 9 years ago. The last 2 years I have been fortunate to be the LEC. My job is to create fun and happiness.
I love interacting with all the residents and I am ready for any challenges that come my way.
Being the LEC is very rewarding. When I am asked "when we can hang out again", then I know I'm appreciated and they want my company. Life is good.
