Our featured senior community for this week is the Abramson Center for Jewish Life. This retirement community takes a different approach to senior living and looks at the individual and their physical, emotional and spiritual needs, to properly tailor their care services to their lifestyle. Abramson offers a large variety of care services to help navigate through each stage of aging. From home care to rehabilitation services to adult day services to hospice and everything in between, Abramson does it all.
Not ready to move out of your home yet but need some help with everyday tasks? Abramson has you covered. You can stay in the comfort of your own home and receive help with personal care needs, light housekeeping and laundry, meal preparation and errands. Additionally, they’ll take you to all of your medical appointments and remind you to take any medication you’re prescribed. Need nursing care? No problem. Medical assistance is available and will be coordinated through your prescribing physician.
The Abramson senior living facility is made up of a small number of residents, 27 to be exact, promising a close-knit group of neighbors. These households feature elegant living rooms, wheelchair-accessible bathrooms, oversized windows, delicious and nutritious kosher meals, a wireless nurse calling system and more! All rooms are private and feature a private en-suite bathroom. Also, pets are welcome! Recreational activities are regularly scheduled and include engaging events such as:
- Exercise classes
- Group cooking projects
ADULT DAY SERVICES
If you simply need something to do during the day, you can sign up for Abramson’s adult day program. Attend as much or as little as you like and we’ll work with your physician to set up a program that meets your needs and lifestyle. There are plenty of social and recreational activities and we can even help you bathe, if you wish. Attendees that need some physical therapy or memory enhancement can receive that treatment here, as well. Additionally, you’ll be served two delicious and healthy meals each day, along with plenty of snacks.
Hospice care is definitely more difficult to imagine but Abramson makes a point of maintaining the best quality of life for patients facing terminal illness. They’ll come to your home, hospital room or wherever is the most comfortable for you or your loved one. With a specialized team of physicians, nurses, chaplains and certified nursing assistants, you can rest easy knowing you’re in good hands. They also offer bereavement services such as counseling and support groups.
In addition to all of the services Abramson already offers, they also provide dialysis care on-site. This facility is designed to provide optimal care to patients with an abundance of medical services. This includes a kidney transplant support program, vascular care, anemia management, bone disease management, and traditional in-center daytime renal dialysis.
As you can tell, Abramson goes above and beyond normal continued care retirement facilities. Located in Philadelphia, this institute takes senior living and the quality of life seriously. Don’t just take our word for it. Visit Abramson Center for Jewish Life and see for yourself!
