MorseLife Commemorates International Holocaust Remembrance Day

 

As the world commemorated the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz death camp, religious leaders throughout Palm Beach County joined at MorseLife for a somber candle lighting ceremony with resident survivors and liberators.

On December 20, 2019, MorseLife Health System launched NOW for Holocaust Survivors to find the nearly 5,000 Survivors living in poverty in Palm Beach County and provide the essential services elderly Survivors need to live the rest of their days in comfort and dignity.

“Working together with the Christian community is profoundly meaningful as we continue to strive for unity in support of this urgent cause,” said Keith Myers, President and CEO of MorseLife Health System.

Representatives of Christian Women for Israel and The Esther 414 Foundation, evangelical Christian clergy, local Rabbis and World War II concentration camp liberators and survivors attended the ceremony of remembrance.

While MorseLife currently subsidizes home care, food and other services for many Survivors through private donations, the new NOW initiative is enabling MorseLife to broaden its reach and offer a full lifeline of services including everything from medication management, skilled nursing and nutritious meals to transportation, housekeeping, clothing, respite care, safety system installation and home repairs.  In addition, the MorseLife 50-acre campus is providing long-term and short-term care as needed.
