Tamala Edwards – Dream a New Dream

Posted on: May 27, 2015

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” ~ C.S. Lewis

On behalf of our entire PPh Family, we thank Tamala Edwards of 6ABC TV News, for joining us in our Social Hall to deliver an inspirational message to our residents, community members and staff. We left the discussion with a new perspective on why age, if anything, is on our side and we could not be more grateful for the encouragement you offered.

Tamala, whose grandfather-in-law, John Lugrine, is an independent living resident at PPh and whose sister-in-law, Gina Egan, a committed PPh employee, were front row along with Tamala’s husband, Rocco Lugrine, to gain the insight she provided on the profound question she posed; “How do you get from a seat in this room this morning to figuring out, ‘What is my dream?’ and then executing it.”

Watch the clip below to hear the thought provoking message Tamala presented and why she closes with, “I wish you all great pursuits, lots of failures, new dreams and no regrets.”

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.
