A Soulful Story: Life Saving Training

September 1, 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.

Team members across The Legacy have been recertifying their CPR, AED, and Heimlich training over the summer months. The importance of this training was front and center recently at The Legacy Midtown Park.

A resident came down to the clinic panicked because her friend was in Stanley’s Bistro choking on a piece of food and unable to breathe. She was pleading for help. Esther Evans, Resident Services Coordinator in the Sharon and Charles Levin, MD Clinic, ran to the resident and performed the Heimlich maneuver. Thanks to the training she had a few weeks ago, Esther knew exactly what to do and jumped into action! She was able to dislodge the food from the resident’s windpipe successfully.

Esther makes an impact on residents’ lives daily, but on this day she remained calm and literally saved a life!

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.
