Joan Lunden to Keynote Our 100th Anniversary Gala November 6

We’re thrilled to announce that Joan Lunden will keynote our Centennial Gala Celebration on November 6 at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle. We invite you to celebrate with us and to hear from Ms. Lunden, a legendary television personality who will share her story and perspective. She will touch on caregiving issues she experienced as her mother’s health declined, as well as how she juggled life’s demands as a member of the ‘sandwich generation.’

Gala Honors Four Exemplary Leaders

At our Centennial Celebration, we will also present four honors to individuals and organizations that have helped the organization emerge as a leading and respected provider of senior care:

Taryn Tanzer, President, Patient Care Associates, will receive the Corporate Medal of Honor for her leadership and contributions to the healthcare community and to United Hebrew of New Rochelle

The Murphy Family, Country Bank, will receive the Community Service Award for their model commitment and contributions to the United Hebrew campus community

Malcolm H. Lazarus and Michael R. Rozen will receive special Centennial Awards for their outstanding generosity, leadership, and decades-long dedication and service to the United Hebrew Board of Directors.

Collectively, their passion and leadership allows us to remain true to our nonprofit mission. With the help and exceptional talents of these individuals, we are able to provide a compassionate healthcare and a high quality of life to the seniors in our care. These leaders are each a tremendous resource.

Silver Tsunami

Joan Lunden’s comments about the value of planning ahead when it comes to senior care will have special resonance in Westchester County, which faces a “silver tsunami” — an aging population living with more chronic illness. As a mother of seven, she juggled the role of working mom while being a caregiver to her mother, who died from Alzheimer’s-related illness in 2013, and her brother, a Type 2 diabetic, who passed away in 2007. She brings her dementia- caregiving experience to her role as the spokesperson for A Place for Mom, a senior care referral service. Lunden is an award-winning journalist, bestselling author, motivational speaker, and women’s health and wellness advocate. She is also a breast cancer survivor.
