Compassionate Senior Care Values at the Abramson Center

Compassionate Senior Care and the Values of the Abramson Center for Jewish Life

We believe seniors should enjoy happy, fulfilling lives. That is why our values at the Abramson Center guide us in creating and sustaining senior communities that allow our elders to continue to celebrate life while enjoying exceptional care wherever they call home.

We have more than 145 years of experience providing quality, compassionate senior care to the cherished members of our community. It’s why we’re here. It’s why our employees become friends with our patients and their families. It’s why we conduct our own research into aged care and person-centered care through our dedicated Polisher Research Institute. It’s why we wake up every morning and consider it an honor to do what we get to do.

Our Mission Goes Beyond Compassionate Senior Care

The mission of the Abramson Center is to enhance the quality of life of seniors by providing exceptional care in innovative living environments, assisting family caregivers, and answering important questions about aging through research. We don’t believe our job stops at the patient. We are here for caregivers, families, and, through our research advances, the many generations that will follow.

That’s why when it comes to our values, there’s always one main focus: RELATIONSHIPS.

Our vision more than 145 years ago was to create a vibrant community, rooted in Jewish traditions and values, where seniors receive exceptional care, are respected as individuals, and enjoy meaningful relationships and opportunities to celebrate life; staff are valued and are encouraged to lead through innovation; and pioneering research supports advances in aged care. Because of this amazing community and all who have contributed to the Abramson Center’s values, we have achieved that vision and will continue to fulfill our important mission.
