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 10,000 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.
