ClientHebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale
Changing the conversation around assisted living
Founded in 1917, the Hebrew Home for the Aged offers a wide range of long-term care and residential settings, supported by shared services, recreation and innovative treatment programs. IBI Group has been the Home’s architect since 1963, providing design services most recently for the Jacob Reingold Pavilion.
The Pavilion replaces an aged and obsolete 86-bed building located off-campus with a modern, 168-bed facility connected to the campus via a concourse. The Pavilion’s design is dedicated to enhancing quality of life for its residents, promoting independence, and removing traces of institutional life while still providing excellent care.
The primary goal of the project was to create a new focal point for the 20-acre campus with a strong architectural presence, providing a substantial number of amenities, including a new spa/pool, museum, lounges, and physical therapy spaces.
The new Pavilion is both a successful model for senior housing for the next generation of users – the baby boomers – and a welcoming home for today’s seniors. Having retired from a more active world, both generations desire (or will desire) an exciting environment that provides opportunities for a vital life experience, while preserving privacy and enhancing social interaction and quality of life.
