Mollie and Jack Zicklin Residence in Riverdale
The importance of tradition
During troubled times, tradition often provides comfort. Our patients are encouraged to invite their own spiritual guide to join their care team.
Through deep understanding of clinical, spiritual and cultural end-of-life issues, clergy can provide guidance and facilitate discussions that honor the wishes of patients and families. Tradition binds us, gives us a sense of place and belonging, and helps us cope.
The Mollie and Jack Zicklin Residence was the first New York State-certified residential hospice under Jewish auspices in the Greater New York area. Funded, in part, through generous support from UJA-Federation of NY, the Zicklin Residence offers our Jewish patients the opportunity to celebrate holidays and traditions. Dietary laws are observed.
Although our residence is rooted in Jewish values, we welcome people of all faiths and offer special cultural sensitivity through our Jewish and Asian programs.
Part of our tradition…

Here, our patients receive expert medical care and pain management, as well as emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to meet their needs and wishes.
