The number of programs my team provides for our residents in long-term care is truly amazing. And while the number itself is impressive, it’s the quality and uniqueness of the programs that put us over the top.
Hebrew Rehabilitation Center prides itself on redefining the experience of aging. All programs are designed to allow residents to remain active and be part of a larger community.
At HRC we’re giving our residents choices when it comes to the senior fitness programs that help them stay healthy, active and engaged.
As manager of Outpatient Exercise and Wellness, I’m proud to be part of the Circle of Fitness program, which was recently awarded the 2014 Gold Award in the NuStep Pinnacle Award Competition. Over the past 15 years, NuStep has recognized the best of the best elite groups in two divisions; Senior Living and Senior Centers. They choose thought-leaders, trail blazers and innovators!
While we can’t turn back the clock, we can empower seniors to play an active role in their fitness program. And empower them, we do! Our team gives residents the space to work out at their own pace with one-on-one supervision. Many residents come to the exercise program two and three days per week with smiles on their faces.
When family members and prospective residents visit us for the first time and tour our exercise facility they’re pleasantly surprised. It’s not atypical to find three to six residents using the exercise equipment in the gym at any given time—all working hard to stay healthy.
Thank you NuStep for recognizing us for what we do.
About Long-Term Care at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center
We take pride in providing seniors with long-term care that redefines the nursing home experience. The basic tenant of care in Hebrew Rehabilitation Center’s nursing home long-term care communities is that resident preferences come first. Our vision for long-term care emphasizes the dignity, health and independence of seniors. Our innovative programming—along with a dedicated staff of Harvard Medical School-affiliated physicians, geriatric specialists, nurses and more—can be experienced in three communities in Massachusetts: Hebrew Rehabilitation Center Boston, Hebrew Rehabilitation Center Dedham at NewBridge on the Charles, and long-term care at Orchard Cove in Canton. We welcome older adults of all backgrounds, faiths and cultures.
