I didn’t know that this was considered a type of rehab. My father is considering looking into speech therapy for his mother who could benefit from it.

It is sad, because no one knows when she is in pain, when she hurts, when she is hungry etc. I would really love for her to be evaluated, but she has been like this for a while and it is only after reading this, I am realizing the issue she has.

How nice to hear from you about our Green House/Small House plans. We’ve already got several Green House facilities up and running on our Westchester campus in Mamaroneck, with more under construction there right now. I’ve visited them and chatted with a number of the residents and staff there, and the spirit in those homes is really wonderful. You can read about them here: https://jewishhome.org/innovation/small-house-communities/. If you have further questions about the Westchester Small Houses, please email me at *protected email* and I can connect you to our team there.

The upcoming Living Center of Manhattan is going to be amazing, and a huge asset to residences for older adults in New York, but unsurprisingly for building something in Manhattan, it’s taking considerably longer than originally planned to get all of the final approvals before we can put a shovel in the ground. Upon receipt of your inquiry, I’ve sent a note over to my colleagues who are on the Manhattan Green House team, and relayed your questions to them. I’ll post an update and email you directly once I have their response in hand.

Thank you,

Andy

Our daughter and her family live on Broadway and 98th street and so it would be very convenient for us as we also have other children in Long Island. We are presently living in Florida and would like to relocate in a year or two and want to know more about the requirements for the green house project. We are presently living independently but my husband’s health is declining and I have some heart issues and
at nearly ages 82 and 87 don’t know what the next few years will hold. Do you have any other facilities in Manhattan and what are the requirements for the Green House. We are very impressed by this concept and would like to get on your waiting list if possible.
