Veterans Programs

“Many of our veterans have fallen into less healthy alternatives to coping with the aftermath of war. Many are not aware of the positive and proven alternatives to managing stress and maintaining wellness that may not be as widely recognized by the traditional provider community. You helped us to bridge that gap and open new avenues for wellness for our veterans and their families. Your valuable contribution allowed veterans to be exposed to holistic alternatives they otherwise might not have had the opportunity to experience.
-John Schultz, USMC Iraq War Veteran, Dwyer Project Coordinator, Suffolk County Veterans Service Agency

“The veterans at The Salvation Army Northport Veterans Residence deeply appreciated the massage therapy event. The feedback was extremely positive, and they reported having excellent nights sleep after their massage. It was a new experience for the majority, and any continued support would be a blessing to our veterans.”
– Deborah A. Rodriguez, Program Director, Northport Veterans Residence 


Senior Care Facilities

“The Hebrew Home at Riverdale is excited to offer to our residents therapeutic massage through Tender Touch For All. Residents and their family members report great satisfaction with the Tender Touch For All Licensed Massage Therapists (LMT’s). Each LMT is selected based on their caring, compassionate and professionalism. The relaxing and calming massage, along with the friendly visit, enhances the quality of life for our residents. Tender Touch For All is consistently providing dependable, reliable, and courteous service.”
-Mary Frances Thaler, Associate Administrator, The Hebrew Home at Riverdale

“I’ve seen the benefit of Tender Touch Massage Therapy first hand, especially with our advanced stage dementia residents. The healing power of touch is an amazing thing. The instant Wendy, the therapist, places her hands on the residents’ shoulders they immediately appear to be less agitated and relaxed.”
– Michele Fishel, Director of Therapeutic Recreation, Sunharbor Manor Nursing Home

“I would like to begin by saying that I’m happy someone thought about providing this service to the aging population. We all know how much they suffer from chronic pain, arthritis, and other injuries, and for them to get out and get a massage is nearly impossible- let alone afford to be able to pay for one. I am delighted that you are providing such a great service. My resident’s really look forward to the day the massage therapist is scheduled to attend. They like the one-on-one attention, the LMT’s are very professional, friendly and gentle with the seniors in my group. They go the extra mile to make them feel comfortable. Thank you for providing such a delightful service!”
-Maytha Ramirez, Assistant Activities Director, Willow Towers Assisted Living

“It’s been moving to see our residents react so positively to this massage therapy service.”
– Debbie Laskin, Director of Recreation and Volunteers, Buena Vida Continuing Care & Rehabilitation Center

“Seniors love Mary (our massage therapist). Many seniors enjoy their massage and are repeat clients”
– Sheila Garson, Program Director, St. Charles Jubilee Senior Center
