With an extensive variety of programs such as art and writing classes, Bible study, and meditation, those in our care are invited to enrich each day through learning and exploration.


RESEARCH

The Hebrew Home’s research division and National Alzheimer Center are at the forefront of elder care research, committed to improving the quality of life of older adults. Founded in the mid-1980s, the research division is internationally known for its contributions to long-term health care. The division is funded by grants from both the federal and state governments as well as from foundations.

Sexual Expression Policy

In 1995, RiverSpring Health authored the nation’s first sexual rights policy for older adults in healthcare settings, driving other organizations to revisit their own policies, and sparking conversations between professionals and older adults in their care.
