Farm life was never dull for Homeland Resident Theodora Howarth

Theodora Howarth lived a good life, growing up on a farm in New Jersey. The work was endless, but, “somebody has to get those eggs from those chickens.”

“You can’t stop, because if you did, you lost everything,” the Homeland Center resident recalls. “We had a good time. We worked hard.”

Homeland Center owes its renown, in part, to the expertise and enthusiasm of its board members. Now, it says goodbye to two who have been central to upholding Homeland’s commitment to excellence.

Homeland thanks Kelly Lick, Board of Managers 2014 to 2017, and Gail Siegel, Board of Trustees 2004 to 2017, for their service. Both are leaving their board positions, with vows to continue supporting Homeland.

CNA quality supervisor fills her job with love!

Dawn Mason was hurrying through her day when a Homeland resident’s advice made her pause.

“You’re going to be more than what you think you are if you just stop and look,” the resident said. Did that mean Mason wasn’t doing her job properly? The resident laughed and said, “Stop moving so fast and just take a breath and look. Life will still be there, but you won’t be if you never pay attention.”
