Quality of Life
We believe that everyone, regardless of circumstance, has the right to age with value and dignity, with full access to quality healthcare and support services so they can live life to its fullest.
Miami Jewish Health understands this and has worked to improve the quality of life of those in our community for 80+ years. When you give to Miami Jewish Health, here is what you make happen.
Therapeutic recreation is a vital component of the Miami Jewish Health experience. Using recreation and other activity-based interventions to address the needs of individuals with illnesses and/or disabling conditions, is an important means to psychological and physical health, recovery, and well-being. Your support provides a wide range of programming, allows us to hire music therapists, and lets us introduce new ideas including horticulture therapy.
Not all our residents are ambulatory, so navigating our 20+ acre campus can be challenging. Thanks to your generosity, we’re able to provide “Love on Wheels,” our on-campus transportation service, so that our services are accessible to all.
Music is a powerful force that evokes strong emotions, brings back heartwarming memories, and provides a way to express yourself. Older adults can especially benefit from listening to music, as it gives them an outlet for creativity, socialization, and mental stimulation. Your investment allows us to provide individual and group Music Therapy services for our patients, residents and adult day health center participants, many of who are living with complex medical conditions and cognitive impairment.
