Hebrew Health Care Grants a Wish for Resident
Roslyn Cohen, patient of Hebrew Health Hospice at the Hospital at Hebrew Health Care had just one wish for her 91st birthday: to receive a visit from a fireman.
Upon hearing this request, the Hospital staff set out to find a fireman to visit Roslyn on her special birthday. Rhoni Yearwood, unit secretary on the Hospital unit, began making calls to local fire departments. When she called the West Hartford Fire Department, she was informed that Roslyn was a former 30 year employee at the department.
On November 9, 2012 Roslyn’s wish was granted when six fully uniformed firemen from the West Hartford Fire Department arrived at her room at the Hospital at Hebrew Health Care to celebrate her birthday. Overjoyed, Roslyn was overhead saying, “This was all I wanted. Thank you.”
