Rosalina “Rose” Villarama, Prairieview at The Garlands
Rose Villarama began caring for residents during the 3rd shift since Prairieview at The Garlands opened 18 years ago.
Throughout the night, Rose checks on the members and assists with whatever they need saying, “We know their routines and their preferences, and we treat them like family.”
Coming to work at a U.S. News and World Report’s 5-star community is a point of pride for Rose who says, “When people ask me where I work, I’m proud to tell them that I work at The Garlands of Barrington—it is top of the line, I must say.”
Looking back, she says, “Working at Prairieview is really one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The Garlands is a very good company, and they really look after the team members.”
