A Soulful Story: Decades of Connections

July 21, 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 Dallas Chapter of Hadassah volunteers at The Legacy Midtown Park the second Tuesday of every month. The Legacy is grateful for this partnership and experience for our Assisted Living residents who greatly benefit from this monthly engagement.

Recently, while volunteering, several Hadassah members shared their Legacy connections dating back to Golden Acres, Legacy’s first campus in East Dallas.

Nanci Duplant‘s mother and grandmother lived at Golden Acres. Nanci and her sisters volunteered on campus by visiting with residents. Nanci continues to volunteer her time by visiting with residents at The Legacy Midtown Park.

Ety Friedman volunteered by visiting with residents, giving manicures, and performing dental check-ups weekly at Golden Acres. A resident even asked her, “Are you a dentist or a manicurist? Which one are you?” Later on, Ety’s mother lived at Golden Acres and she has fond memories of taking her children there to play chess with their grandmother.

Majorie Rosenberg and her family would volunteer at Golden Acres when their extended family came together for holidays. They would all go together and visit with residents.

As The Legacy moves into celebrating our 70th anniversary of serving seniors and their families, we are grateful to be able to reminisce on the decades of connections built throughout the Dallas Jewish community and appreciate how it impacts the services we provide today.

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.
