“During this very trying time, we are so glad our mom is at United Hebrew. They have been able to keep her safe and engaged. The staff, especially Joann, have been wonderful in their care of our mom and very receptive to all our questions and concerns. They have been able to keep residents safe, despite being very close to the epicenter of this terrible virus. Thank you, United Hebrew staff, for all you do for your residents, from all of Alice’s very thankful children!”

“I just wanted you to know what an  amazing staff you have and what an outstanding job they do on a daily basis. My mother, Dvora Stillman, has been at United Hebrew for several years now and has been cared for every day by incredible people who put their heart and soul into their jobs. During this difficult time we all need to work together so please let me know what I can do to help. Thank your caregivers for me and tell them they are in my thoughts and prayers. All the best.”

“I am missing my mom [during the COVID-19 crisis] but I am so happy that the nursing home is taking such precautionary measures.”

—Mary Porretto

“My mother received loving care at United Hebrew. She was an affectionate person, very sensitive, and staff took great pains to show her warmth and kindness. My wife and I visited my Mom every Sunday evening, and it made such a difference to us to see her in good spirits, and to see the genuine affection shown to her by the nursing staff. And as we shared a meal in the common area, it was so gratifying when the art or music therapist would stop by to say hello and tell us how much they enjoyed my Mom. I can’t tell you how many times I heard my mother say “I love you” to members of your staff. During her final years, she never forgot who we were, and never lost her sense of humor or affectionate nature. I’m sure the care she received had a lot to do with that, and I’m grateful to everyone who looked after her and nurtured her.”

“I have both my Dad and my Mom at United Hebrew. My Dad came in for short-term rehab; my mom joined him later as she needed the extra care. It took a bit to get things sorted out; the staff made sure their needs were taken care of. No one wants to put their loved ones in a nursing facility. But there comes a time when choice is not an option. I have positive things to say about United Hebrew: it’s a very clean and accommodating facility. The doctors, nurses and all of the staff are very good and attentive to the patients’ needs. It’s very important to be involved and keep an open communication with all. I’m very grateful for everyone’s care to my parents. A special thanks to Ron, Claudette (my parents’ morning aide), Krystal for all her help, and to the many people that are involved (too many to name) in my parents’ care. Your dedication and work in elderly care is a special gift from God! Thank you for caring ! Blessings to all.”

“We recently had to make the hard, emotional decision to place our mom in a nursing home. I am familiar with many local facilities through my job. United Hebrew is truly top of the line! It’s sparkling clean, bright and cheerful. There are lovely sitting rooms, activity areas, and a gorgeous courtyard off the lobby, adjacent to a lovely little café where residents and guests can get sandwiches and salads. From the wonderful admissions staff to the terrific and incredibly knowledgeable finance manager, our first interactions were reassuring and friendly. The nurses and aides are quickly responsive and very kind. There are many varied activities during the day. We are lucky and grateful that our mom is here. Sure, it’s a difficult adjustment for her, but everyone has shown empathy and interest and are doing a wonderful job of helping her through the changes. Thank you United Hebrew!”

“Excellent nursing home, rehab, and assisted living facility! I have had three grandparents experience three different facilities on United Hebrew’s campus. The staff is incredible. The place is super clean, and they always have something going on. Everyone is friendly and makes you feel like family. They make your loved ones feel like they are their own. We are grateful for UH. Thank you.”

“I am eternally grateful for everyone who cares for my mom at United Hebrew. For 50 years, I knew exactly how my mother preferred things. Now you are the ones who know her best! Thanks for all that you do.

“After my mother kept falling, my supervisors where I work told me I must get her into United Hebrew where their family member had gone and had wonderful care.  After being transferred from UH’s rehab to the full time Skilled Nursing Facility, the continued occupational and physical therapy have been very helpful. Her aides, nurses, and social worker are very attentive, and my mother’s quarterly pre-operative procedures for her urological stent change are excellent. She really enjoys Music with Anna, being on the Resident Committee, Bingo, reading her books, and time with the Pet Therapy Dogs. I recommend United Hebrew for anyone looking for excellent care for an elderly loved one.

“I spent three weeks at United Hebrew for short-term rehab following reconstructive knee surgery. The care from the nursing, PT, and OT staff was excellent. And the huge private room was a plus. From what I have seen, all of your patients are treated with nothing but outstanding care. Thank you, United Hebrew. If I ever have to have rehab again, I will be back!”

—Renee M.

“Placing my mother into a nursing facility was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. From the moment I met Quinetta Padgett, Mom’s assigned social worker, I felt relief. She was warm and understanding. All of the staff have made me feel confident that my mother is in the best of hands. I have come to know them not just as my mother’s caretakers, but as friends. I am grateful for their service. No facility goes the extra mile for a patient like the staff at United Hebrew.”

—Diana D.

“My mom was a resident here for almost two years. The nurses, doctor, and aides were all wonderful. She received excellent care and was treated like family. I visited her several times a week, and when I arrived, I’d always find her in the recreation room: singing, chatting, or engaged in activity. My family and I are extremely grateful that she was at United Hebrew, and we would highly recommend it to others. “

“After  my  92 year old mother-in-law had surgery to repair her fractured femur, we began a frantic search for a rehabilitation hospital for her to receive the best care.  We wanted the most empathetic and well trained physical and occupational therapists plus a caring medical team of professionals. We found all of our requirements at United Hebrew of New Rochelle.  My Mother-in-law spent over a month relearning how to walk and after spending time with many of the Burke Rehabilitation-trained therapists, she departed the facility in much better shape than she was in prior to her injury! United Hebrew provides valet parking which makes visiting a pleasure. They employ friendly and professional security staff that provide guests with a comforting smile when you enter their lobby. I was especially impressed with Matthew who was often sitting behind the desk when we walked in. Matthew also greeted us with a smile and patiently helped us sign in using their computer system.  The nurses and social work staff were very helpful and went out of their way to provide the kind of loving and professional care that made my mother-in-law’s transition to their center and recovery a positive experience.  On the first few days after her admission, Michael Joseph Bobrowski, Director of Social Work, would sit with her, by her bedside, and make sure that she was adjusting to United Hebrew’s environment.  While my wife and I had never heard of this facility prior to this experience, I’m now a great advocate of recommending United Hebrew to our friends who are looking for short term and long term care.

“This was our first experience at United Hebrew and what a great one it was! The staff was wonderful, knowledgeable, and available. My mother was treated with dignity and respect, and her every need was responded to. The facility is well-kept, and the PT staff did wonders. I highly recommend United Hebrew!

—Grace O.

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about United Hebrew of New Rochelle. The care — of the nursing staff, the medical staff, the physical therapy department and everyone in between — is caring, compassionate and highly skilled in geriatric care.  From the welcome at the front desk by Anna, or the greeting and help from Eva on the third floor, the conscientious care of Monny, the Nurse Practitioner and Dr. Ticco in his expertise and treatment, my ninety-one year old mother was restored mentally and physically upon her arrival there. We have had experiences in other facilities and I am happy to say United Hebrew of New Rochelle is an extraordinary place for geriatric care.”

“I was apprehensive about my hip replacement and recovery because I knew it was going to be a challenge in every way. What made my recovery special was the people that helped me throughout my eight-day stay. The nurses, aides, physical and occupational therapists were all instrumental. Thanks to all!
