Help sought for Misericordia's Quinlan Terrace

Despite the concerted efforts of our friends in retailing to distract us, the holiday season still begins with Thanksgiving, an all-too-rare moment these days to pause and reflect on the things for which we are most grateful.

CAN-TV producer Tony Joyce (he wears other hats, but this is how I know him) told me last week how grateful he is for Misericordia and for the comfortable, pleasant environment it provides for his sister, a long-time resident.

Misericordia is home to an increasing number of aging adult residents like Tony's sister -- and, like all aging people, their needs will change as the years pass. To respond to the evolving needs of the increasing number of these older adult residents, Tony told me, Misericordia has begun construction on the Quinlan Terrace Project, a group of four homes that will ultimately house 60 senior residents.

Groundbreaking for Quinlan Terrace at Misericordia

Tony Joyce is trying to help Misericordia continue to help his sister by helping Misericordia, which is now trying to raise $30 million to build the Quinlan Terrace homes and endow the services that its elderly residents will need. Tony asked me to help him get the word out. If you'd like to help Tony and his sister and the good people of Misericordia, you can email Tony at (and, of course, you can always donate directly to Misericordia).
