A patient currently on Legacy at Home Hospice is a former crafter and artist. After a stroke, she lost the ability to make her elaborate, handmade greeting cards. She grieved for the loss of her creative outlet and the joy it brought her.
This hospice patient was paired with Sharon Tucker, recipient of the LAH Volunteer of the Year award this past spring. Sharon continues to do meaningful work with her patients through crafts and art. Sharon and the patient immediately bonded and began making jewelry and greeting cards, reviving her love and joy of crafting again.
We are so thankful for volunteers like Sharon who bring meaning and wholeness to our patients.
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.
