COVID-19 Success Stories


Connie has been a resident at Hancock Park since 2016.  There is a common thread when speaking of Connie which is that she is a sweet, kind woman who smiles often and enjoys the company of peers.  Her most favorite past time pre-COVID was visits from her dog.  She is a lover of animals with Barn Babies being a favorite activity.  Sing-a-longs, music, arts, crafts and the salon make her list as well.  Connie’s daughter is very supportive and involved in her care, and, according to her daughter, she has a very helping nature, and is proud of her “famous backrubs” which she provides to all who are receptive. Connie was diagnosed with COVID-19 in April and has successfully recovered. She is now doing well and looks forward to resuming her daily activities.  

Tom has been a resident since 2016.  His declining health status made it challenging for meeting Tom’s needs at home, which resulted in his admission.  Tom has a supportive, loving family and his wife is a tireless advocate for her husband.  Tom is a quiet man with a kind smile.  He enjoys being with small groups of people.  He can always be found at food socials or musical entertainment. Tom was diagnosed with COVID-19 in April and has successfully recovered. He is now doing well.

Mary O. is a rather new resident to Hancock Park.  She was admitted in December from her home in Quincy where she resided with her boyfriend of many years.  Prior to visitation restrictions, Mary’s boyfriend visited often and misses her greatly.  Mary’s niece is also involved and supportive in her care.  Mary has a wide circle of friends that are a very significant part of her life.  Her friendships are so very important to her. Mary is social, enjoys conversation, and partakes in group activities when able, yet will return to her room for privacy. Mary has a loving extended family who send letters and cards, which she enjoys reading. Mary was diagnosed with COVID-19 in April and has successfully recovered. She is working with Physical and Occupational therapy to regain strength and is now stable.  


Mary K. has been a resident at Hancock Park since 2015.  Her longtime companion is very devoted; he and his sister are supportive, visit often and enjoy taking Mary on outings in the warm weather.  Mary was a professional singer, hence her love of music and dancing.  Mary’s companion states she always took very good care of herself and her voice.  Prior to COVID-19 restrictions, Mary could be found each day walking about the unit in one of her many baseball hats.  She also liked to partake in facility life enjoying Bingo, Trivia, arts and craft and of course, music/dance entertainment. A devoted Catholic, Mary’s faith is very important to her; she was a cantor (leading choir singer) at Saint John’s Church in Quincy. Mary was diagnosed with COVID-19 in April and has successfully recovered. She will work on resuming her strength and mobility and continuing her recovery at Hancock Park.
