Helen Bader Center

The Helen Bader Center, envisioned by Helen Bader, known for innovative programming, and commitment to research, offers a safe, nurturing, caring environment for residents with Alzheimer’s and related dementia. Our goal is to maximize functional, social, and cognitive abilities for all our residents.

Helen Bader was a former Assistant Director of Social Services and Staff Education Coordinator at the Jewish Home who was deeply affected by her work. She saw the daily challenges that are brought on by dementia and sought to bring joy to the residents’ lives through music and dance. She believed that creativity could connect with everyone.
