Senior Identification Program

The best way to ensure that you receive the best care possible is to consolidate your medical history before an accident happens.

Hudson County Senior of the Year – 2011

hudsoncountysenioroftheyear
Orlando Addeo started working during the depression. He was paid $1.00 a day, which he gave to his father to help support the family. He enlisted in World War II and his service on the front lines earned him the rank of sergeant. He returned to Hoboken after the war to marry the love of his life, Rosalie Zavardino. (she passed away after 62 years of marriage.) Orlando has volunteered in many capacities for many decades including the American Legion, the Knights of Columbus, and the St. Francis Holy Name Society. For the past 30 years he has volunteered every day in service to the seniors.
