ESTES PARK, C.O. - At Good Samaritan Society's Estes Park Assisted Living, Carol Wheeler makes her job as a nurse about the people.
Wheeler knows her stuff. After all, she's been a nurse for a very long time. "Since 1960," she said. "Well, I'm 83, and it's a 55 and older population here."
The people who live here see her age as a strength. "I wish she’d be here forever as a nurse," said resident Selma Williams, who is 91.
Beverly Henderson knew Wheeler before she came to the assisted living facility. They were both nurses at different practices. "When I came here it was comforting to know somebody who knew who I was or what I did," said Henderson.
