When Frank and Jayne Marascio hear about mom Josephine’s gardening activities and weekly circles, they are overcome with gratitude. Josephine Marascio is a third-year resident battling dementia, and it hasn’t always been easy.
“My mother had been in two other places before finding her forever home here,” said Frank. “The care, attention, and love exuded by the entire staff of Seashore Gardens is exemplary. exemplary. Hearing of her Wednesday gardening experiences and seeing the Sunday circle group, with residents talking about past and present topics, is so heartwarming. With the help of the Foundation, we can continue these wonderful activities and other intangibles that makes Seashore Gardens the absolute best.”
This will be Frank and Jayne’s second year volunteering at, and walking in, the Seashore Gardens Foundation 5K Run & Health Walk. They will help hand out registration forms and also walk with their team to raise awareness and money for the Seashore Gardens Foundation. “Our goal last year was to be the highest money raising team,” said Frank. “I believe we came in second. This year is no different; we are striving again to come in first! Knowing that the money raised will help all those affected by Alzheimer’s/dementia is outstanding!”
“We are trying to get as many people as possible,” said Jayne, “so we can make a real difference in the lives of the residents. I am so grateful for everyone who has sent in donations and who is supporting this important effort.”
