Our services for the Russian-speaking community are coordinated by Alexandra Dashevskaya, Director of the Bilingual Services Program, a gerontologist with many years of experience working with Russian-speaking seniors. Ms. Dashevskaya can be reached at 617-363-8425.
Boston's population includes many Russian-speaking seniors, and Hebrew SeniorLife has taken an active role in addressing their special needs.
