A Soulful Story: Calling All Youngsters

August 25, 2023

Feeding the Jewish Soul is a weekly series of posts that will give you insight into what The Legacy does day in day out, and how it impacts the seniors we serve.

The Legacy had a new, young, bright face recently assisting with activities. It was not a new hire, but rather Independent Living residents Renee and Buddy Gilbert’s granddaughter, Rachel. She spent a week volunteering at The Legacy Midtown Park assisting with arts and crafts, doing friendly visits with residents, calling bingo, and giving manicures. Rachel enjoyed spending time with a variety of residents at Midtown Park.

The Legacy loves having youths volunteer! There are a variety of activities for children to assist with across our organizations: musical performances, resident visits, prize donation drives, lead or play games, escorting residents to activities or Shabbat services, etc.

Make more moments like this possible by supporting The Legacy Senior Communities Foundation. It is our great honor to care for seniors. We continue to uphold the mission of our founders by providing a continuum of care to seniors and their families delivered with compassion, dignity, and excellence, while embracing our Jewish values.

Every year, The Legacy Senior Communities Foundation, with support from The Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas, provides more than $1 million in charitable care to Jewish seniors in the Dallas area. This care includes resident support and thousands of hours of Personal Assistance Services provided by The Legacy at Home grant program.

It is the community’s continued support that leaves an imprint on the present and future of our organization, creating a level of distinction we call The Legacy Difference. This distinction includes Jewish life initiatives, Kosher dining programming, social events and activities, resident transportation, security, and much more!

The Legacy is able to respond to the most urgent and changing needs of our residents and their families, and the growing demand for senior care and services thanks to our generous donors.

Swing by our Blog every Friday to welcome in Shabbat with a new story highlighting the life seniors live at The Legacy Senior Communities.
