Our Vitalize360 program features an individualized approach to wellness within a senior living community.

Learn more about this innovation program that's changing the way older adults in our communities and beyond approach healthy living: http://bit.ly/1OvR4cF
While many may perceive senior living communities as places where older people go to put their feet up and watch the world go by, Hebrew SeniorLife believes that seniors have far more potential to accomplish exciting things in their later years. The residents of Hebrew SeniorLife communities are people who are learning, growing and achieving full, healthy and vibrant lives.

Those who take on the role of family caregiver for an ailing older loved one too often take on added stress from both inside and outside of the family. Tips on weathering caregiver criticism: http://bit.ly/29R8R64
Family caregiving is more of an art than a science. Most people who take on the challenge of family caregiving do the best that they can under their unique circumstances, yet, they often receive criticism, sadly even from other caregivers. How can family caregivers who are already doing so much for their love one(s) weather criticism from outsiders about how they provide care?

Expressive therapies like music, art or dance therapy can improve mood and well-being. These types of therapies are an important part of our programming at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center. Today we're sharing this sweet blog and video from our blog archives on the role of expressive therapies at Hebrew SeniorLife. http://bit.ly/29V6fR9
Picture this – a husband and wife who can no longer communicate due to dementia begin individually swaying to music, unaware of each other’s presence. Within minutes, the gentleman is leading his wife in a dance and they joyfully move together in a sweet reunion of sorts. It’s a beautiful and true moment – one that captures the ability of expressive therapies to connect with our residents on levels not always possible.

Pre-wedding bells rang on June 27th at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center Dedham for our Life Enhancement Coordinator Ashleigh Robert and her fiancé, who participated in a pre-wedding ceremony ahead of their July wedding for residents at HRC Dedham, who were sad to be missing her big day. The ceremony was performed by NewBridge on the Charles Chaplain Rabbi Karen Landy and attended by HRC Dedham residents at NBOTC. Residents walked Ashleigh and her fiancé down the aisle and all enjoyed after-ceremony wedding cake and the chance to offer advice for a long and happy marriage.
