JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Nov. 4, 2019 - PRLog -- Thirty years have passed since River Garden Hebrew Home for the Aged relocated from its original three-acre site on Stockton Street in the Riverside area of Jacksonville, Fla., to its new home at the picturesque, 40-acre River Garden Senior Services campus, 11401 Old St. Augustine Road in the Mandarin area of Jacksonville.

River Garden was founded in 1946 by The Ladies Hebrew Sheltering Aid Society, a group of determined and visionary Jewish women who recognized a need to establish a home for the elderly.

Over the years, the not-for-profit Home has now become a top-rated 180-bed care center for Short-Stay Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation, and Long-Term Nursing and Memory Care. In 2012, a 10,000-square-foot wing was added to include the Adult Day Program, Jewish Life and Volunteer Services, and one of the largest, and most respected rehabilitation and therapy gyms in Jacksonville. The River Garden Foundation and River Garden Auxiliary raise money to help subsidize the immediate needs of the people who call River Garden their home. River Garden also serves as host for several senior-focused programs throughout the year.  For more information, visit the website at http://www.rivergarden.org.
