In their 98th annual meeting, Cedar Sinai Park, a leading nonprofit senior care organization in Portland, honored two community members for commitment and contributions to older adults that span two decades.
The organization honored Bob Weiner, who for the last 20 years has been a dedicated financial contributor and volunteer, well-known for hosting excursions that take residents on outings -- beach and fishing trips -- and “mystery drives.” Bob was also recognized for his commitment to the staff that serves the community of elders, including generous sponsorship of the Employee of the Quarter program.
Cedar Sinai Park also honored Charles Jagger, a volunteer who has been serving elders in the community for 18 years. In a presentation to a full room of supporters, Charles was recognized for not only the 70 hours a month he dedicates to working directly with residents, but also for the role he played helping Cedar Sinai Park establish Oregon’s first Green House® model of small-group, long-term care living.
“Both of these amazing, tireless volunteers exemplify what it means to be of service to others,” said Irit Mandelsberg, Administrator of Assisted Living at Rose Schnitzer Manor on the Cedar Sinai Campus. “The lives of many, many people have been enriched because of their contributions.”
Cedar Sinai Park was founded in 1920 as Jewish Old People’s Home and has had the benefit of strong support from the community. Today the organization offers the state’s largest assisted living community, Rose Schnitzer Manor, a state of the art post-acute rehab center, Robison Health & Rehabilitation, Sinai In-Home Care, and Oregon’s first Green House® model of small, home-like settings for long-term care. Cedar Sinai Park also provides affordable housing with services for people with low-incomes or special needs.
