A Special Moment at LifeQuest Nursing Center

Sam and Lillian

Lillian Yurgosky has kept a cherished family heirloom in her residence at LifeQuest Nursing Center.  The sculpture belonged to Lillian’s great grandmother and was passed down to her from her mother.  Recently, this bronze sculpture of a whistling boy fell off of her shelf and broke.  Lillian was heartbroken and called many local shops to try and have it repaired to no avail. Lillian then asked the Administrator, Sam Smith if he could possibly have it repaired for her.

Everyone in the facility knew how much this sculpture meant to Lillian, but Sam was at a loss on how to fix it.  He was told by several staff members that his Assistant, Elise Adler ‘s significant other, was a local sculptor/artist and may be able to help.  Ken Herzog, who is employed by Independent Casting in Philadelphia PA was more than happy to take on this special project for Sam and Lillian. The only payment that Mr. Herzog asked for was to see a picture of Lillian when she received the reconstructed sculpture.

Mr. Herzog very quickly completed this project and everyone was amazed at how wonderful the sculpture looked. Several staff members got together to give Lillian the sculpture to see her reaction. The sculpture was handed to her and as you can see by the pictures and the look on her face she was overwhelmed and surprised.  With tears

in her eyes, Lillian thanked everyone.  Everyone who witnessed this special eventphoto 2 photo 1was touched by her gratitude.

These are the moments that we will always remember, making a Resident smile in any way we can, is who we are at LifeQuest Nursing Center, this was truly a team effort.
