Dear Residents and Families,

We have three exciting milestones to share this this month. Shapiro-Rudolph Adult Day Health Center is celebrating 40 years from its opening date; September marks the 25th anniversary of Harriett and Ralph Kaplan Estates; and the Jeffrey and Susan Brudnick Center for Living (formally Jewish Rehab Center) has been part of our Peabody campus for 10 years. The longevity of these three entities reflects the loyalty, dedication, and support of our residents and families throughout the years. We are truly grateful.

For those of you who observe the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and You Kippur, I wish you a very happy and healthy New Year. It is a time to rejoice in being with family and friends.

Congratulations are in order for Tammy Starion and Eddie Gathii. Tammy passed her Nursing Home Administrator exam after a yearlong administrator-in-training program. She is now Executive Director/Nursing Home Administrator at BCL. You can read more about Tammy in this newsletter. Additionally, Eddie, one of our wellness nurses for the past five years, was recently promoted to Resident Care Director at Kaplan Estates, a very well-deserved promotion.  I am so proud of both Tammy and Eddie, and their deep commitment to our organization.

As always, please know I am available to answer questions, hear comments or simply get together and talk. I welcome the opportunity to connect with each of you.

Enjoy the beautiful fall weather!

All the best,


Megin L. Hemmerling
Regional President, Peabody
