I visited this facility

The Hebrew Home at Riverdale is a great place. It is certainly among the best of the various assisted living facilities in the greater New York area. I visited the Hebrew Home to look for an assisted living facility for my mother. I should say that although I decided to put my mother in a different assisted living center, I felt nothing but positive vibes from the Hebrew Home. The staff there were very friendly and polite. The people I met who lived there seemed to be in good spirits and had good things to say about the place and the workers. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and very well kept, and the hallways were nice and clean. Overall I was quite impressed with the Hebrew Home at Riverdale, and rate it a 4 out of 5. If you have a relative who would benefit from assisted living, I highly recommend that you take a look at the Hebrew Home.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

The facilities were as nice as could be expected for this sort of home. There were many activities for the residents, regardless of their capabilities. For example, my grandmother who at the time was blind, hard of hearing and in a wheelchair, along with other medical conditions, was still always busy and enjoying herself learning how to use a computer, various arts and crafts including pottery and painting, singing and piano playing, watching television, local trips, and various other special events. The food services were good and I enjoyed eating there quite often. It is a premiere Jewish assisted living facility and as such there are regular services as well as services for all Jewish holidays.

This place is well run and attentive to my mother's needs. They call if there is an issue and are responsive to my questions and concerns.

This has to be the most beautiful nursing home I have ever seen! Both the interior and exterior are beautiful. The interior feels more like a hotel rather than a nursing home. It is very spacious with a lot of room for roaming, sitting and relaxing in. It does not have the feel of a healthcare facility, because the interior lights are somewhat dimmed, which makes the atmosphere seem more relaxed. One resident that I spoke with, was very happy with her living conditions. The food is okay, everything is Kosher. Outside the facility, there is a patio area where residents can sit when the weather is nice. Overall, this facility looks and feels more like a small resort rather than a nursing facility.

The grounds are beautiful - it's right near the Hudson river. There's lots of walking paths and gardens and it's very nice. It's probably about a couple blocks from Johnson Avenue, which is sort of the main business area in Riverdale and there are supermarkets, shops, and restaurants there.

The common areas are very nice. They have a big lounge with large TVs. Each floor has a lounge, and there are eight floors.

The food there seems to be ok.

They have a lot of activities, including bingo and trivia.

It's a very big place, so there are hundreds of staff. For the most part, the staff is pretty good, but there are a few who are less good. There's a central telephone number that residents can call if they want to make a complaint, and the facility claims to investigate every complaint.

The rooms tend to be average-size.

There is a fair amount of parking for visitors. There also seems like a lot of people who don't want to be there, some of them who are just there to be rehabbed.
