David's Story

David grew up in the same Providence, R.I., neighborhood as the Capitol Ridge community where he has worked for the last 18 years – a feat for which he was honored this year as one of the longest-serving associates. As the Dining Services Director, he wears many hats, allowing him to interact with more residents—an aspect of his job that he loves.

“I cook, I manage, I do whatever I can to make the residents happy because, at the end of the day, we’re really here for them. It’s a great feeling coming into work every day, seeing that the residents really do appreciate what we do.”

While David loves connecting with residents over food, he also enjoys learning about them. “You actually become family with them,” he says. And some are just like family because he grew up with their children. “We reminisce about the old neighborhood where we lived, talk about the same people, where we went to school and how we watched the high-rises get built. That’s how we connect, and it brings back memories for them and puts a smile on their face.”
