Overview
The Madlyn and Leonard Abramson Center for Jewish Life, formerly Philadelphia Geriatric Center, has a heritage of more than 130 years of care and concern for the aged. The Center is the progeny of two 19th-century homes that provided the basic necessities of life for elderly Jewish immigrants from Central and Eastern Europe.

As the need for broad, far-reaching services for the aged became apparent, the Abramson Center for Jewish Life's founders moved quickly to provide them. Over the years, the Center developed into a complex multi-service agency serving the aged and their families. Research into the medical, social and behavioral problems affecting the elderly also became an important priority and led to the creation of the Center's renowned Polisher Research Institute.


Today the Abramson Center for Jewish Life continues to forge ahead in developing pioneering services and facilities for care of the aged at its new, state-of-the-art campus in Horsham Township, Montgomery County, Pa.
