Jewish Home Unveils Specialized Programs at Gallen Day Center

The Gallen Day Center, the Jewish Home Family’s daytime medical program for seniors, has unveiled enhanced programming, expanded transportation and specialized tracks for those with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and neurological movement disorders.

“The Gallen Center is a critical part of our suite of Jewish Home at Home community services,” says Jewish Home Family President and CEO Carol Silver Elliott. “By offering stimulating programs tailored to the individual needs of our members, we are enabling people to stay in their homes while thriving in a social environment with full medical capabilities.”

The program runs from Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., with door-to-door transportation included, as well as nutritious hot meals. Participants are picked up and dropped off at their homes throughout Bergen and Rockland Counties. Jewish Home at Home’s @HomeCare private duty aides are also available to help with getting ready and winding down before and after the program.

“Gallen Day Center offers a sense of purpose and structure to the lives of older adults with functional and/or cognitive impairments,” explains Gallen Center Director Susan Lilly. “They socialize with peers and enjoy therapeutic activities. Nursing and social work services are provided. Due to its location, we offer on-site medical services such as dentistry, podiatry and rehab therapies plus beauty salon services. It is like one-stop shopping to make life easier for a family caregiver.”

The program accepts NJ Medicaid as well as private payment. Additionally, there are several types of grants available, including for veterans and Alzheimer’s-related diagnoses.
