On Friday, June 9th, California State Senators Robert Hertzberg and Henry Stern stopped by to mingle with BCSC participants. Following lunch with participants, BCSC Executive Director Susie Fishenfeld provided the Senators with a tour of the Center. Both Senators offered their thanks to the seniors and stressed their support of the Los Angeles Jewish Home and BCSC.

“We all stand on your accomplishments,” said Senator Hertzberg. “Everyone in this room has a great story. You built this city. You built this community. I offer my respect to you and want you to know we don’t forget.”

“The Home and seniors are very important to me,” said Senator Stern. “I work for you. I’m here to serve you,” he added.

During their visit, both Senators honored BCSC participant Sadye Peckman, who is 101 years young. She received certificates commending her life and recognizing her important contributions to her family and community.

On Monday, June 12th, a grand day was had by BCSC participants and staff when the well-known Mexican actor, Eduardo Yanez, visited the Center. Eduardo is making Los Angeles his home away from his Mexican home as he pursues new and exciting opportunities and projects in "Hollywood".

Eduardo provides care for his elderly mother who lives in Mexico and understands the daily challenges caregivers face. He is a community minded individual and understands the importance of access to community resources for an improved quality of life. Univision, a BCSC community partner, shared with Eduardo information about the BCSC PACE program which led to the visit. During his visit, he encouraged the BCSC participants to share their stories and memories through writing, painting, singing and any other way they can share those memories.

Both visits were enjoyed by all and will continue to be a special memory for BCSC participants and staff.

The Brandman Centers for Senior Care is the only Program for All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) in the San Fernando Valley. BCSC serves seniors age 55 and older who live in the BCSC service area, need coordinated medical care to continue living safely and as independently as possible in their own home and community.
