To celebrate the last day of National Skilled Nursing Care Week, Boston Mayor Michelle Wu recently spent the morning at German Centre, the skilled nursing residence in West Roxbury operated by Chelsea Jewish Lifecare and Legacy Lifecare.
An accomplished pianist, Mayor Wu played two songs on the piano to the delight of the nursing home residents. After her impressive performance, she chatted with each of the residents and staff members. In addition to Mayor Wu, speakers included Genevieve MacLellan, President of the Board of Trustees, Deutsches Altenheim; Emily Shea, Commissioner of Age Strong Commission, and Adam Berman, CEO Legacy Lifecare.
This celebration is significant as it marks the first indoor celebration for the residents after the two-year pandemic. Michelle Wu is the first Mayor to ever perform for the seniors at German Centre.
