EMD Serono Makes The Boston Home's Holiday Wishes Come True!

The folks at EMD Serono are making sure the holidays are merry & bright for The Boston Home residents through their holiday gift exchange program

Our Activities team visited each resident last month to hear their wishes for a holiday gift. This week, thanks to the generosity of EMD Serono and its employees, every one of our residents will receive their wished-for gift. The Boston Home extends our sincere thanks to our compassionate and caring friends at EMD Serono and their long-standing commitment of giving back to the communities they work and live in. We are so grateful for you all!

Ginny and Thomas Soybel 
In support of The Boston Home's Compassionate Care Capital Campaign, Ginny Soybel, who is now a Trustee of The Boston Home, shares her family's story.

Please take a few moments to watch our three-part interview with Ginny. Ginny discusses her early married life with Thomas, his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis, his pursuit of writing when he lost his ability to speak, and the difference that The Boston Home made in their lives.

Ginny, thank you for sharing your story!

B. Fit! Holiday Outreach

At The Boston Home, one challenging impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the suspension of on-site activities for our B.Fit! day program, which offers wellness, nutrition, friendship and field trips for individuals who have advanced neurological disorders and live in the surrounding community.

While the B.Fit! program continues to operate remotely, with check-in calls, online classes, and virtual activities and field trips, we miss seeing our B.Fit! members in person and we know that they miss meeting up at The Boston Home.

This week, B.Fit! program staffers Glory Wideman-Hughes and Chelsea Moses stopped by B.Fit! members' homes to deliver some seasonal cheer, and a holiday gift. Thank you to all the supporters who helped make these holiday gifts possible!  We hope that we will see our B.Fit! friends back at The Boston Home in 2021. Until then, we send our warmest holiday wishes!
Keff D. shares an enthusiastic thank you!
Thank you for making Giving Tuesday a Success!

The Boston Home extends our deepest thanks to everyone who supported our 2nd annual Giving Tuesday fundraiser.

Through your generosity, as well as the fantastic Thanksgiving basket raffle (and matching gift) organized by our dear friends, "Gail's Girls," we raised nearly $22,000.

On behalf of our residents, thank you for your commitment to our Home. The Boston Home is Where our Heart is.
