Mary Blandau, Administrator at Kinsington Place, says "It seems I have been serving my community most of my life. I volunteered while still in school and in fact won the prudential service award for extensive community service hours. I was an EMT Intermediate and have worked in many facets of care. I enjoyed running an Adult Foster Home for 11 years with no deficiencies. It is my goal to enrich the lives of seniors helping them to achieve goals and enjoy a wonderful quality of life. Seniors are so special to me . They offer a glimpse into the past that is not in any book. They truly are wonderful, with advise and experience matched by no other generation. I hope to continue to work with this population until it is me with the wisdom and age to pass on.
