My Mom – the Matriarch, and support system for all. As the years pass, the roles are reversing. Her loneliness, isolation and diminished independence has dimmed the light in her eyes. Unsteady and unsure she is forced to lean on me and my siblings.We try so hard. Between doctor appointments, therapies, controlling her medication, visiting and keeping her company while juggling our own busy lives we always seem to fall short.
Right now in Lakewood a new program is opening up to fill all these needs. Habaiyta, an Adult Medical Day Program catering to the needs of the Jewish seniors in Lakewood and the surrounding areas.
Habaiyta’s services are all inclusive; door to door transportation with vehicles that are wheelchair accessible. Full Glatt Kosher meals that are overseen by a licensed dietician. They have two full time registered nurses on staff that assist with coordination of health services, medical appointments, medication administration and treatments. Their Social Worker will assist with all social service needs. They offer on-site visits from licensed audiologist, podiatrist, and pharmacist are just a sampling of the services provided to alleviate the coordination and travel time involved in appointments and ensuring our members receive the necessary attention. Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy is provided on location by licensed therapists are available to continue improving the quality of life for their participants.
Their medical services do not overshadow the daily interactive activities provided in the center. These include lectures, entertainment, fitness programs, day trips, and so much more that enrich and support the wellbeing of our senior population.
This program allows seniors to maintain their own level of independence while living within the community. Not to mention the relief to the family to know that their loved one is in good hands. Contact us for more information 732.385.6902
