ALBERT LEA, M.N. - Tracey Ball received a text message one day from her sister-in-law with a screenshot of a position that was open at Good Samaritan Society - Albert Lea for an activities coordinator.
“I had never really thought about that before,” Ball said of the job. “When I saw it, I thought, ‘This might be really fun.’”
Ball has a group activity every afternoon at 2 p.m., including bingo once a week, along with others such as game days, trivia, current events, live entertainers and comedy hours.
“She is everything a center would want in an activities coordinator, and the amount of joy she’s brought to the residents is incredible,” said, Stacy Johnson, associate quality strategist at Good Samaritan.
