Many hospitals are affiliated with religious organizations. Many people agree that faith can aid healing, so it’s no coincidence that they are so closely connected. It also stands to reason that seniors would find a sense of peace and comfort in an assisted living facility that also has close religious ties. While many assisted living facilities were founded by religious orders, many of them have seen fit to open up their admissions to serve people of all faiths. Here are some Protestant assisted living facilities in Miami:
One of the largest senior retirement communities in Miami is The Palace Group. With five different senior communities in Miami, five more in other parts of Florida, and two more in Israel, The Palace Group is an award-winning senior care organization that offers assisted living, nursing care, rehabilitation, and home health services. In 2003, The Palace Group was recognized as one of the fastest growing private companies in South Florida. The owners are Jewish and their facilities are open to individuals of any faith. The Palace’s assisted living facility is called The Palace Renaissance. This facility offers personal assistance while allowing seniors to live as independently as possible.
Epworth Village has its roots in the United Methodist Church, a faith that cares for aging people as one of its foundational principles. Epworth Village was built by the Epworth Foundation in keeping with the tradition of providing senior care in a Christ-centered, family-oriented community. Epworth Village assisted living programs offer 165 beds in three different buildings. Residents may receive nursing care on a 24-hour basis in the comfort of a courtyard apartment. The program offers a full schedule of social activities.
Adam Reiss, a German-Lutheran from the Midwest, moved to Coral Gables to retire. When his health began to fail, he called on his friend, Ida Cohen, and donated $10,000 to her to begin a home for the aged. Ida followed through on his request and founded the Miami Jewish Home for the Aged in 1940. The organization grew into the Miami Jewish Home and Hospital, which now includes a full array of senior living options, including assisted living. The name changed to Miami Jewish Health Systems and it serves over 10,000 Miami-Dade and Broward county citizens annually. The organization serves people of all ages, cultures, and faiths.
