Dorothy and Harry began as tablemates in the dining room, where Harry became good friends with Dorothy’s husband. Before he passed away, Dorothy’s husband asked Harry to take care of her. Their friendship slowly grew into love, and they’ve been together for six years.
For Jeanette and Ira, the seeds of love were also planted in the Home’s dining room, where Ira, the newcomer, joined Jeanette’s table. They found they could talk and laugh together easily. Now, more than a year later, they are still talking and laughing like a couple of teenagers in love.
The benefits of a close and loving relationship are many, for couples of any age. Being in love can boost self-esteem and decrease depression and anxiety. The support of someone special can result in improved coping skills and alleviate feelings of loneliness. Being happy in a committed relationship can actually improve your immune system, leading to fewer colds and visits to the doctor, and can even lower blood pressure.
The environment of the Los Angeles Jewish Home supports the well-being of the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. The opportunities to meet new friends, or maybe a new love, are many. The Home offers a full menu of activities, both on-campus and off-site, and encourages residents to live life to the fullest.
