On Tuesday, St. John's Home on Highland Avenue held a special luncheon to celebrate its nine residents who are at least 100 years old. The oldest being 108.

News10NBC asked one of the residents what her secret to longevity is. 


Nina Tufano, 101 years old, said, "Good friends that make me smile .and make life seem much nicer than maybe it is."

St. John's Home offers care for Alzheimer's patients, rehabilitation services, adult day service and hospice care.
