‘Angels’ help acclimate residents at Westview Acres

WACONIA, M.N. - The Westview Angels welcome new residents with a personal visit, help them become acquainted to life at Westview, dine with them and invite them to participate in activities. They are also available to answer questions and remain a friendly presence as new residents get settled in.

“We’ve been through it too,” said resident and ‘Angel’ Mary Schullian, “and we try to make newcomers feel welcome and adjust to their new home.”

The angel concept got started more than 15 years ago on national “Be an Angel Day,” according to Carol Reich, Good Samaritan Society social services coordinator. That day, marked annually, celebrates acts of kindness, good deeds to others and being a blessing in someone’s life.
