BOSTON (Oct. 16, 2023) – In an evening of community and camaraderie, Boston Senior Home Care celebrated the remarkable achievements of state Rep. Daniel J. Hunt and Health Care For All Executive Director Amy Rosenthal at its annual Forever at Home Fundraising Gala.
Rep. Hunt, a lifelong resident of Dorchester and an unwavering advocate for the community, received the Legislative Advocacy Award. Boston Senior Home Care recognized his steadfast commitment to creating affordable housing, his unwavering support for older adults, and his dedication to fostering economic growth within the community.
“Rep. Hunt’s prestigious nine-year political career has been defined by his advocacy for older adults,” said Margaret Hogan, CEO of Boston Senior Home Care. “He has tirelessly secured funding for services that allow older adults to age in the comfort of their communities, where they wish to be. He has also championed organizations supporting individuals with physical and developmental challenges, advocating for crucial funding for adult day care programs and other essential support initiatives.”
Rosenthal’s tireless commitment to community health and welfare has clearly left an indelible mark. She received the Community Advocacy Award during the gala.
“Amy’s dedication to the cause of health care access for all is truly exceptional,” said Margaret Hogan, CEO of Boston Senior Home Care. “Amy has been a beacon of hope for those in our community who are most vulnerable. Her passion for creating equitable health care access has made a meaningful impact in the lives of countless Massachusetts residents.”
Hogan emphasized that both honorees exemplify the values of Boston Senior Home Care, which has been dedicated to supporting older adults, individuals with disabilities, and families for almost five decades.
“Our mission is to empower individuals and caregivers to lead better lives, and Amy and Rep. Hunt perfectly embody these values through their work,” said Hogan.
The event, held at the Omni Parker House in Downtown Boston on Oct. 12 and hosted by the award-winning TV news journalist Jorge Quiroga, was a resounding success, and set the stage for an even larger event next year.
