How Rabbi Wasjfeld Has Helped Turn Boro Park Center into a Home Away From Home

February 18, 2016

Centers Health Care understands that the Jewish community’s valued tradition of family members caring for elderly and infirm loved ones at home means that the options for skilled nursing facilities are extremely limited. Consequently, we stepped in to build Boro Park Center, our answer for those in Brooklyn in need of a home away from home with staff that speaks English, Hebrew, Yiddish, Russian, and a half dozen more languages!

Boro Park Center is proud to have Rabbi Wasjfeld as our spiritual leader to guide us. Beginning with a magnificent Shul with daily Shiurim, days here are designed to make our orthodox Jewish residents feel at home, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We encourage residents to invite their friends to join us in enjoying Glatt Kosher cuisine with Chassidishe Shechita under the Hashgacha of Rabbi Friedlander.

At Boro Park Center, we created our unique program to blend the warmth and familiar comfort of the heimishe home with compassionate health care services. Our Shvil Hazahav program is changing the way we keep communities and families connected. We’re proud that so many residents can enjoy sharing in the Jewish culture and traditions with family activities, Shabbos Oneg, kosher cuisine, and three minyanim daily at Boro Park Center.

Heimishe meals and recreation are only a small part of the cultural immersion here at Boro Park Center. Panim Yaffot Salon comes every Thursday to do Shaitels, make-up L’Kkvod Shabbos, hair, manicures, and more. With over 30 years of collective experience on our social work team, we will help smooth the transition to your new home and introduce you to a wonderful group of residents that will soon become fast friends.

Boro Park Center is part of the Centers Healthcare network; New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island’s premier group of skilled nursing, rehabilitation and senior care services.
