"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 Hinda and Arthur Marcus 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."
