Monmouth County’s Office on Aging joined with Regency Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Hazlet to host the Monmouth County’s Centenarian Celebration, honoring residents who are or will be aged 100 and over in 2015.

“It was great gathering to celebrate our Monmouth County centenarians,” said Freeholder John P. Curley. “It was truly astonishing to see how active many of them are and to hear them speak of their more than 100 years of living. This was a great celebration for them to share with their families and friends, and I look forward to it every year.”

The birthday party was held at the Regency Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on May 11 and included a luncheon, music, gifts and a birthday cake.

“A few centenarians got up out of their seats to dance and others were dancing and singing in their seats,” said Curley. “Their energy and excitement filled the room. It was absolutely wonderful.”

There were 15 centenarians in attendance: Josephine Alessandro, 100; Eleanora Bell, 99; Rita D’Elia, 99; Katherine Elberty, 101; Hazel Feick, 100; Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, 102; Mario Gazzara, 101; Nicoletta Granato, 100; Adeline Lubkert, 99; Helen McKeown, 99; Rose Perrotta, 101; Brother Patrick Power, 102; Christina Savoca, 103; Ruth Schiff, 102; and Irene Starosolsky, will turn 104 on May 31.

In May 2013, Regency broke the Guinness Book of World Records for the “Largest Gathering of Centenarians” at their Somerset location, Regency Jewish Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center by gathering 31 centenarians in one location.



Somerset County Freeholder Deputy Director Patricia Walsh will attend the annual luncheon honoring Somerset County centenarians starting at noon on Wednesday, May 20, at the Regency Jewish Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, at 380 DeMott Lane in Franklin Township.

Defeating Alzheimer's by 2015

Written by

Of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States, Alzheimer’s disease is the only one for which there is no effective treatment. The disease has a staggering reach: Roughly one out of every five of us is at risk of developing Alzheimer’s dementia in our lifetime. Caring for Alzheimer’s victims costs the world an estimated $604 billion each year in addition to the terrible personal costs to families. Its numbers are expected to triple to an estimated 115 million people by 2050. If nothing changes between now and then, not a single person will survive it.


In other words, Alzheimer’s is a slow-motion time bomb. The trouble is that the scale of the research has never met the size of the problem. And those of us who have worked in this field for decades have had limited success bringing attention to the magnitude of this deadly disorder.

But a more collaborative, focused approach between the public and private sectors is beginning to take hold. Scientists engaged in it are making quick progress that promises to ultimately transform Alzheimer’s from a death sentence into a preventable illness.
