The Hebrew Home at Riverdale has been dedicated to community service since its founding in 1917, when a small synagogue in Harlem opened its doors as a shelter for poor, homeless, elderly people.
Over the subsequent 93 years, The Hebrew Home has become one of the nation's leading elder care centers and has continually renewed and expanded its commitment to provide the best possible care and the highest quality of life for older people.
Today, the Home, located on 19-acres along the Hudson River in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, serves more than 7,000 older adults in greater New York.
The Hebrew Home now includes residential healthcare, rehabilitation and palliative care facilities, a senior housing community, The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention, and ElderServe, the Home's community services division which offers a full spectrum of healthcare and supportive services to help maintain the independence of older persons who choose to remain in their own homes. This includes long term home health care, in-home personal care, medical and social adult day programs as well as overnight respite programs.
