Living with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease?

The Jewish Home Family has specialized programs and services, along with highly trained staff, who can make the difference for you—and your family. 

To effectively care for those with Parkinson’s disease, a far reaching, multidisciplinary approach is required.
 

At the Jewish Home Family, we have made a commitment to excellence in the care of individuals with Parkinson’s disease and created a comprehensive program across all elements of our system, including Jewish Home Assisted Living, the Jewish Home at Rockleigh, the Gallen Medical Adult Day Center and Jewish Home at Home.

Our approach to Parkinson’s is personalized for each individual and holistic, addressing the key components of mind, body and spirit. We also know that a diagnosis of Parkinson’s affects the whole family and we strive to keep families engaged and educated.

My sister Maureen and I want to thank you and all the wonderful caregivers at Jewish Home.  Our mom has felt very welcomed, safe and cared for over the past 2 weeks.  She has also made some very good friends!

We tried hiring a health aide directly and ended up having to provide last-minute backup and support. The 24-hour on-call and nursing support makes an incredible difference.

We appreciate everything all the good folks at AL have done for our mom. Mom felt so very welcomed during her time there. From the caregivers to nurses and everyone - very caring and encouraging. It is so good to have a relationship with you all for any future respite or other needs.
