We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our wonderful Hebrew Home family. As family members, you play an important role in the fabric of resident life, therefore your participation and involvement in our community is most appreciated and valued. Please know that we look forward to a long and collaborative relationship in promoting the health and well-being of your loved one. We hope you find the following information helpful.
In order to ensure the safety of our residents, staff and visitors it is essential that The Hebrew Home at Riverdale remains vigilant about enforcing rules in our parking lot. Therefore, we would like to remind you that all illegally parked cars--those parked in fire lanes, in front of the main or south gates, and in illegal parking spots—will be towed at the owner’s expense.
It is of the utmost importance that we keep our parking lot accessible for all emergency vehicles. We greatly appreciate your cooperation in helping us guarantee the safety of the entire Hebrew Home community.

These cards are available at the Security Office Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm.
Flu Prevention Guidelines for our visitors (What You Can Do to Stay Healthy)
Stay informed. Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people.
Take everyday actions to stay healthy.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
Stay home if you get sick. CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.
Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.
Find healthy ways to deal with stress and anxiety.
