L’chaim! It means “To Life!” and I’m excited to begin 2019 with a new name for our organization that evokes all the vibrancy of this central Jewish tenet — and of our residents. On October 14th, we officially began a new chapter as 2Life Communities.
It’s a big decision and a long process to change the name of an organization after 53 years. The reaction has been overwhelmingly positive, especially from residents. They don’t want to be labeled, and they certainly don’t see themselves as “elderly.”
This holiday season, 2Life Communities will be hosting celebratory events like a Winter Wonderland Dance Party and a latke competition. As we do year round, we’ll be making sure our residents feel connected and stay active.
Thank you for all you do to support our vision of a world where, as our new tagline so succinctly states, older adults can age affordably and live well.
Happy holidays and of course, l’chaim!
