Standish Village Holds Celebration for WWII Veteran

Standish Village Holds Celebration for WWII Veteran

Standish Village Assisted Living in Boston recently held a celebration for one of its residents who returned from his tour with Honor Flight New England.

Standish Village is located at 1190 Adams St., right over the Milton town line. Eugene O’Brien, a World War II veteran, was flown down to Washington, D.C. to visit historical monuments and pay respect to his fallen comrades. On this “final tour of duty,” O’Brien was accompanied by his son-in-law Gerry and visited places like The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the WWII Memorial.

At a celebration thrown by Standish Village afterwards, Julieanne Doherty, a member of Mayor Marty Walsh’s Elderly Commission, attended and presented O’Brien with a citation on behalf of the City of Boston. “When I brought the idea to SLR, they did not hesitate in sponsoring Eugene,” stated Lauren Basler, EnrichedLIFE Director at Standish Village. “Standish is lucky to be managed by a company that values giving back to our residents who are veterans.”

Standish Village offers local seniors service-enriched assisted living and a state-of-the-art Compass Memory Support Neighborhood featuring innovative, research-based programming for those with memory loss developed in affiliation with the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center.
