As leaders in technology and innovation, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of what's possible in care. Our Balance App connects families of those living with Alzheimer's and related dementia with caregivers and professionals, helping everyone to share medical information and coordinate care in real-time.

Our Good Morning Mom and Dad program at the Greenberg Starr Memory Support center uses video technology to connect those living with Alzheimer's to recordings of their loved ones, promoting healthy brain activity and stimulating the senses.


CONTINUING EDUCATION

RiverSpring Health’s continuing education and therapeutic activities program offers opportunities for personal growth, satisfaction, and expression through physical, cognitive, psychosocial, and emotional stimulation. 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.


Elder Justice

RiverSpring Health is committed to increasing awareness around issues of elder abuse in the community, and to creating a safe, warm environment for healing and learning for victims.

During the initial on-boarding process for all prospective residents, patients, and members, we make sure to conduct an initial screening to understand if they may have experienced a possible history of elder abuse. This helps to strengthen our sense of community advocacy, provide more comprehensive referrals to the Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention, and ensure that we're caring for the health and wellness of a community of older adults that may have otherwise remained silent.


Night Care Program

Our night care program is the first of its kind in the United States, offering overnight respite care for adults with severe sleep disturbances caused by various forms of dementia. Between the hours of 7:00PM and 7:00AM, our caring and highly trained staff provides the full range of care to patients from the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and lower Westchester.


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.
