Dear Residents and Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Passover. With Martin Levson and his guitar leading this year’s Seder, we had a wonderful time at both JNH and Ruth’s House. The residents and families enjoyed a delicious dinner with music and singing. As one family was leaving, a family member told me he thought the event was “truly hamish and beautiful.” We appreciate the feedback. I’d like to thank Martin for all he did to make the evening so enjoyable for all of us.

I am happy to announce that our Ruth’s House Assisted Living was awarded funding under the Commonwealth Nonprofit Security Grant Program (CNSGP) from the Office of Grants and Research (OGR), a state agency that is part of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS). With this grant, Ruth’s House will be updating its current security camera system and adding additional cameras, both within and outside of the building. In addition, we plan to upgrade our after-hours system as well as lighting around certain areas of the building.

As we continue working through the process and obtaining input from vendors who specialize in safety and security, we will keep everyone informed about the upgrades and the projects status. If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out. I’d like to extend a sincere thank you to CNSGP for selecting Ruth’s House. We are eager to get the project underway!
