  • From the moment you ring the doorbell, there is no doubt about what drives Eden Langworthy: his family and his music.

    The affable Langworthy greets guests in his bare feet and torn jeans. A tattoo in large ornate script says “Windy”, his wife of some 25 years and the person responsible for most of the words that flow from his brain to his fingertips as he writes songs inspired by those he loves and the life he lives.

  • I f you have never visited a nursing home, you might be surprised to know that not all the people living there are “seniors.”

    Take Susan Phillips, for instance. Susan moved into Williston Rehab & Nursing Center six years ago, at the (some might say tender) age of 47.

    She brought with her a love of plants, fish, dogs, cats and bears, and had to leave behind a home where her love of bears was displayed everywhere.
