The PSL Canoe Story
Phoenix Senior Living’s CEO, Jesse Marinko, has witnessed first-hand the overwhelming and beneficial effects that intergenerational activities can provide for both the emotional and spiritual well-being of seniors. Jesse saw the loving connection strengthen between his son and Grandpa Joe as they hand-crafted a canoe, and realized that amazing things happen when projects are done hand-in-hand with love and passion. Today, the canoe symbolizes our love and care dedicated to every relationship shared at Phoenix Senior Living. Please watch the following video to learn more…
