When an elderly Chinatown resident walked down Beach Street on March 26, she never imagined she would lose her life savings to “gold diggers” who were also Chinese seniors. The incident was reported to the Boston Police Department.
The Chinatown Safety Committee met for its monthly meeting on April 3 at the Doubletree Hotel.
Hong Lok House may look old on the outside, but that’s just its façade. Past its four different exteriors, a new steel building with high ceilings, wood floors and large windows overlooks Essex Street.
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.
Chinese seniors, caretakers and elementary school students rang in the Lunar New Year at Kindred Transitional Care and Rehabilitation in Quincy on Feb. 21.
Walking was a trial for Yong Lin, 76. After a knee replacement and back surgery, he frequently had swollen legs and difficulty moving.
Today, Lin walks faster than all his friends and can extend both knees completely. “Every day, I do more than an hour of exercise,” he said.
