  • Chelsea Jewish Lifecare Featured in the Boston Globe

    On Friday afternoon, Leonard Florence residents were treated to a concert by “All Good Things,’’ a musical group led by recreational programming director Jimmy Honohan. Residents sitting on balconies or watching from their windows were serenaded with a medley of oldies, from “Mustang Sally’’ to “This Magic Moment’’ on guitar, drums, and saxophone. Such events are comforting not only to the residents but to children and relatives, who can’t attend but know that the residents are being entertained and looked after.
