"I knew about Hebrew SeniorLife from friends who were involved, and I became more engaged when my mother, Sarah Stone, went to live at Jack Satter House in Revere. All her friends from childhood were there, and there was a feeling of community and camaraderie. She was treated with such kindness, and I wanted to give back to an organization that gave my mother so much happiness in the later years of her life.
"There's a place for you at Hebrew SeniorLife, where you'll be cared for whether you're rich or poor, regardless of your religion or background. And the Institute for Aging Research has created a model for geriatric research in the way that researchers are not just accepting the way our society has approached old age. I'm proud to be associated with a national leader and an organization that treats all seniors with respect and dignity."
