From the first look at the Abramson Center for Jewish Life, I knew that it was a very different kind of facility, for both rehabilitation and skilled nursing. It is beautifully maintained, with a large open space which is used for various entertainment on a daily basis. There are lots of chairs, good lighting, and the center area is surrounded by a gift shop, a library, a computer center, a synogogue and an a la carte lunch area for residents as well as guests. There is even a large indoor play area for children with toys, and as well as an outside play area. There are many tables and chairs with large umbrellas outside the facility for seating as well as visiting with friends and family. The care that the residents receive is kind and thoughtful, as well as very thorough. Doctors come and go and do examinations on the residents, and it seems that you do not even have to ask for a doctor to come, they are already aware of the problems. The nurses come to the resident's assistance quickly and do what is needed to be done - the residents are not ignored. The residents are clean, dressed properly, and seem to be well taken care of. One of the nice things in the nursing area is that each person has a private room. It provides dignity and the ability for the resident to maintain their own space. My mother refers to her room as an apartment, which makes me think that she likes the facility. The bathroom is large, immaculate, and wheelchair ready. The residents eat together in a sunroom, and it is a pleasant room with lots of light. The food is somewhat bland, but then again, most of the residents are on low sodium diets, so those types of foods tend to be bland. There is a large portion of food on the plate, and it looks freshly made.There are some very nice touches in that the staff serves freshly cooked cookies, just warm from the oven. There are also treats of ice cream, smoothies, and pudding throughout the day.The staff provides entertainment throughout the day, and encourage the residents to participate. All in all, it is a very pleasant facility. It is nicely decorated, immaculately clean, provides all kinds of entertainment, and the staff is very pleasant, and do their jobs in a very pleasant manner. I have been very pleased with the facility, and in fact I just referred a friend to facility, who is pleased as well.
