January 15th, 2017 was far from your average Sunday — Edison Home Health Care had the privilege to share a truly special, touching, and joyous occasion with someone very special.
On that day, we celebrated the 100th birthday of a very special patient of ours — Ms. Rose Lawson. Edison was also joined by the office of Senator James Sanders Jr., NY State Senator of the 10th District, to participate in the celebrations.
Born in 1917 in South Carolina, Rose moved to Jamaica, Queens with her family as a little girl in the early 1920’s and has lived there ever since and has been a pillar in her community ever since. Rose was fully alert, posed for pictures, and brought her humor and love of life into every minute of the day.
Rose came on service at Edison almost two years ago. Having the privilege to visit her lovely home on her birthday and share in this happy occasion with her friends and family meant the world to us. Celebrating the gift of life, especially in the field of home health care, is a constant reminder of what really matters at the end of the day — our friends, family, and the brighter side of life.
To many more warm, caring, and smile-filled years. Happy Birthday Rose!
