Hebrew Home at Riverdale

I took this August 2006 when my father moved from the Fairfield nursing home (which was sold) to the Hebrew Home in Riverdale (the Bronx). He lived on three different floors here, in three different buildings.

It looks good.  Nursing homes always look a lot better from the outside.  I've never met anyone who's had good experience with a relative being in a nursing home.

Given what the aides are paid and the ratio of staff to patient, there's no way on earth the care could be even acceptable, much less good.
