Eileen Handler has received the Distinguished Senior Award from Leading Age, a national organization which focuses on non-profit programs addressing housing and services for the elderly. She was nominated by Mckenzie Moss, life engagement coordinator at Abe’s Garden where she resides. Eileen relishes being an initial point of contact for new residents, giving them a tour and hosting new resident orientations. She is the first to volunteer as a leader for activities and is the first to hit the dance floor at musical events. She sorts and organizes donated books for the community library and is a beacon of light and positive energy to everyone she meets.
