Interview with Carol Gillard-Gumbs
Alexandra: How long you have lived at Goldstein Apartments?
Carol: I have lived at Goldstein Apartments for 3 years and 10 months.
Alexandra: How has living at Goldstein Apartments impacted your life?
Carol: I am living in a building where I feel safe and secure. The location of Goldstein Apartments is ideal because I can walk to many places or catch the bus right out on Bustleton Avenue. There is also a sense of community here where residents and staff look out for one another.
Alexandra: What might someone be surprised to know about you?
Carol: I worked at Tastykake for 38 years. I loved working there and I worked on every floor and held many different positions. My favorite was making the Butterscotch Krimpets.
Alexandra: What activities/hobbies do you enjoy doing?
Carol: I enjoy crocheting and I would like to learn to knit one day. I participate in as many activities as I can both in the building and outside in the community. Some of the community activities I enjoy are line dancing, senior mixers, karaoke, bingo, and yoga. I take SEPTA everywhere I need to go because it is free to ride the bus with the Senior Pass Card.
Alexandra: What are some of your favorite words of advice?
Carol: Be happy and kind to others! Keep MOVING!!! If don’t use it, you LOSE IT!!!
