New Rochelle, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) December 14, 2010
The room was filled with music and excitement during the The Low-Savin/Soundview Apartment's 30th anniversary celebration held recently on the United Hebrew of New Rochelle campus. Soundview Apartments, a senior housing residence and part of the United Hebrew of New Rochelle campus of services, was one of the first HUD sponsored senior apartments in New York State. The tenants were very happy to celebrate this major milestone with music, dancing and a wonderful dinner. The planning committee, included a team of tenants, long time administrator, Margaret Curran and service coordinator, Joanne Russo Lanza.
“We are all so proud to be celebrating this happy occasion with our tenant friends at The Low-Savin Residence,” said Rita Mabli, president/CEO of United Hebrew, “For 30 years it has been a model for seniors living independently and aging in place successfully.”
United Hebrew of New Rochelle has been serving the community since 1919 on its 7.4 acre campus on Pelham Road. It has grown from a small house for 11 indigent men to a thriving senior living campus. The campus of services includes not only Soundview Apartments but in 2003 it opened Willow Towers Assisted Living and then in 2009 a new nursing home and rehabilitation pavilion. United Hebrew also provides home health services for those who need care in the community.
The Low-Savin Residence/Soundview Apartments has 135 apartments for those over 62 years of age who are income qualified. As tenants grow older and might need additional assistance, the service coordinator assists the tenants with additional services such as home health care for help with activities of daily living. The building has mostly one bedroom apartments, lovely common sitting areas, a library and a multi-purpose room for activities. The United Hebrew campus has a park-like setting with outdoor benches throughout.
