The Leonard Florence Center for Living, the only urban model skilled nursing Green House® in the world caring for individuals with ALS, recently celebrated the opening of its second ALS residence in Chelsea, MA.

Named after Richard “Dapper” McDonald, a native of Middleboro, MA, who was diagnosed with ALS in November, 2008, the new residence pays tribute to Dapper’s courage, spirit and zest for living. Dapper never slowed down or stopped going to work; he passed away from ALS a short nine months later.

The grand opening of the Dapper McDonald ALS Residence marks the third neurological specialty residence within the award-winning Leonard Florence Center, which is operated by the Chelsea Jewish Foundation.
