Tang Chen may be the only senior in America who can say when he moved into his nursing home, his four daughters were already there. All four daughters were already employed at South Cove Manor as certified nursing assistants in September 2010 when their 92-year-old father moved in from a senior housing facility where he had been living with his wife. Injured and needing rehabilitation, the elder Chen found that by living at South Cove he could spend more time with his daughters than before.
The Family Caregiver Support Program of Boston makes sure caretakers of seniors take care of themselves. It is housed at Boston Senior Home Care and also serves Ethos and Central Boston Elder Services.
Friends and supporters of Boston Senior Home Care (BSHC) gathered at the Fairmont Copley Plaza on Nov. 7 to raise funds. The community-based organization provides care management and support services to low-income senior citizens.
