The Hebrew Home at Riverdale is an internationally recognized non-profit geriatric care organization offering a full continuum of senior care ranging from modern apartments for independent seniors to the most intense level of nursing care. The Hebrew Home serves more than 12,000 older adults in greater New York.
Since its founding in 1917, the Hebrew Home at Riverdale has grown to include a long-term residential elder care facility located on 32-acres along the Hudson River, a senior housing community with both luxury independent living apartments and assisted living, and ElderServe, the community services division. ElderServe offers a full spectrum of in-home geriatric care and supportive services for people living at home. In addition, in 2005 the Hebrew Home opened The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention, providing the nation’s first shelter for victims of elder abuse in the community.

At age 67, Lucy Lang was a widow, with grown children living on their own. She contacted the Hebrew Home at Riverdale, thinking she would spend an hour here and there visiting with our residents to keep busy and give back. Twenty-four years later, she is still volunteering at the Hebrew Home, and has shared countless hours with our residents, reading stories, sharing common experiences, and simply listening. What began as a casual drop-in turned into an incredibly rewarding experience of personal fulfillment for Lucy.
