ROBBINSVILLE, NJ -- A simple thank you with a cake and afternoon treats goes a long way sometimes. In an effort to offer this sentiment to local first responders for their work to keep the community safe, Rose Hill Assisted Residence welcomed members of the Robbinsville Police and Fire Departments to a Wednesday afternoon reception.
The event was held on September 11th to celebrate Patriot's Day and the brave work of first responders.
"We were talking about first responders the other day. You're taken for granted. How much you do and how much you're always there," said Ernie, a navy veteran who is often called the "Mayor" of Rose Hill.
The assisted living facility cares for up to 72 residents and is home to one resident who is a young 102-years of age.
Rose Hill also is celebrating Assisted Living Week which was created in 1995 as a time for residential facility residents, their loved ones, staff, volunteers, and communities to recognize the important role of assisted living in caring for senior citizens and individuals with disabilities.
