Meet Charlotte

Meet Charlott, 76 DPI

Meet Charlotte:  
A Lifetime
at the Center
of her Family


"I call this my home," says Charlotte of the Hebrew Home of Greater Washington, where she has been a resident for the past ten years. "This is like a vacation to me. I don't have to worry about anything." After devoting her life to caring for parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, Charlotte is indeed very happy to sit back and be on the receiving end of so much tender loving care!

As the daughter of a typesetter for the Jewish Morning Journal, Charlotte was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. She was the youngest child in a large family, and ultimately she was the one upon whom both parents and all the siblings depended to maintain the household. It was a responsibility she took very seriously...and she never let anyone down. To demonstrate their appreciation over the years, Charlotte's relatives treated her to some wonderful trips that included European destinations as well as many tourist attractions throughout the USA.

Today, Charlotte is a lively, engaging figure in our community who stays active with all sorts of activities, including art classes led by instructor Victoria Molina, whom she particularly admires. She has always been an ardent reader, although at 95 years of age her eyes sometimes tire easily, so she is looking forward to the opportunity of exploring the pleasures of books on tape. It is indeed gratifying for all of us who work at the Home to spend time with someone like Charlotte whose upbeat, optimistic attitude is a real inspiration.
