The vision of Hebrew SeniorLife is to redefine the experience of aging: by reimaging senior living, redefining senior health care, and rediscovering every senior’s potential through teaching and research.
This Harvard Medical School-affiliated, non-profit, mission-driven organization was founded in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston more than a century ago in the spirit of the Jewish tradition to honor elders and care for the most vulnerable. Since then, HSL has evolved and grown to meet the changing needs and expectations of seniors and their families, offering a breadth of services to seniors of all religions, cultures, races, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender expressions. Through HSL’s continuum of health care and senior living services, HSL has established a record of long-term excellence and today serves more than 3,000 seniors in greater Boston every day.
Hebrew SeniorLife impacts the lives and futures of seniors well beyond greater Boston, nationally and internationally. HSL’s innovative programs in areas such as wellness and chaplaincy have been a model for senior services organizations across the U.S. HSL’s training programs prepare tomorrow’s clinicians – geriatricians, psychologists, therapists, and more- to meet the specialized health care needs of seniors, supporting a critical provider pipeline for the future as our population ages. HSL’s research programs support discovery to impact the future for senior health and quality of life around the world.
