I believe in the work that the Foundation does because it believes in creating a better system, better facility, better program for the future. That matters to me.
I knew my mother would be well-taken care of at any facility that was under the Foundation, because of the reputation. And I was right.
This organization doesn’t treat my dad like a patient, they treat him like a person. He is given the best care possible, and it’s because they believe in treating the whole person, not just the illness.
I began volunteering at Foundation’s Chelsea Jewish Nursing Home and realized what a special place this was. Residents are happy, and the staff care. I enjoyed being here, too.
