“The relocation of our home care offices to New Rochelle will allow us to further expand our services in the community and continue The Wartburg’s 150 year tradition of caring,” said David Gentner, President & CEO of The Wartburg Adult Care Community. “The Wartburg has positioned itself as a resource to keep seniors in their homes as they age. We are moving forward with our campus expansion. A new building planned for the Mt. Vernon campus offers 50 private rooms and expanded therapy areas for short term in-patient rehabilitation and a new expanded space for adult day programs. Soon we will be breaking ground for a second building, an affordable independent supported senior living residence. These projects, in conjunction with a more accessible and central location for home care positions the Wartburg to provide services that allow seniors to age in place safely.”
Myrlhene Descollines, RN, MPA, Home Care Administrator said, “For over 20 years, our Long Term Home Health Care Program has provided in-home care for Westchester County residents with chronic illness or disabilities. Our social work staff, therapeutic professionals, nutrition counselors, home health and personal care aides deliver in-home services, coordinated by our Registered Nurses with a twenty-four hour nurse available to all clients.”
“Our Licensed Home Care Services Agency, which serves clients in Westchester and the Bronx, provides individually tailored temporary or ongoing assistance in consultation with patients, their families, and their physicians,”
