Harry And Jeanette Weinberg Center For Elder Abuse
At the Hebrew Home at Riverdale, a large long-term care facility on 32 lush and efficiently manicured acres, it might seem strange to hear about a garden that is purposefully tended slowly and methodically. But in the garden created by the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Center, the nation's first emergency elder abuse shelter, that is exactly what the gardeners are encouraged to do
The Hebrew Home at Riverdale received the 2013 Outstanding Advocacy Award from LeadingAge at its national conference in Dallas last month. I had the honor of accepting the award on behalf of the organization. This award, which recognizes our leadership role in the field of elder abuse prevention for the past decade, meant a lot to us.
