The following is an excerpt from our 2013 Annual Report: A Recipe for Success.
Gloria Tatro and Marion Currier have known each other for decades. Gloria was a resident at the Tranquility Nursing Home where Marion was a licensed nursing assistant before Tranquility closed and both came to Menig. Dawn Abdel-Fatah works for Upper Valley Services and spends a couple days a week with Gloria and sees the extra effort Marion makes.
If Gloria wants popcorn, Marion buys her a bag out of the hospital vending machine after work. If Gloria, who makes beaded necklaces, needs extra supplies, Marion picks them up for her.
“She’s just very kind. She cares about the way she looks, her hair, her clothes. She takes her time.” ~ Dawn Abdel-Fatah
