Ron S! Charitable Fund Gift for PPH Virtual Dementia

Posted on: Jan 10, 2019

Saturday, January 5, 2019, the family of the Ron S! Charitable Fund held a gathering in the PPH Private Dining Room to honor the spirit of giving of Ron Silberstein. PPH Independent Living residents Marge and Tom Sexton (mother and stepfather of Ron), and Ron’s brother, Joe Silberstein, formally presented a check in the amount of $3,610 to PPH employees including: President & CEO, Anthony Manzo; Sr. Dir. of Resident Life & Performance Improvement, Jennifer Honeyford; and Director of Development, Deanna Keough.

Family and friends contributed to the Fund’s campaign held over the holiday season enabling the gift to be made to PPH for the purchase of the Second Wind Dreams Virtual Dementia Tour. The Virtual Dementia Tour is a technology that allows caregivers and family members of loved ones living with dementia to experience the challenges of the disease. Jennifer Honeyford will implement the program at PPH for staff training and education to support the mission of providing quality care to all seniors.

Ongoing updates regarding the PPH Virtual Dementia program can be found on the PPH website and Facebook page after its implementation. Learn more about the Ron S! Charitable Fund.  Read the beautiful words spoken of Ron by his mother, brother and stepfather in the article published by the Northeast Times.


What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
