Muriel and Harold Block Residence in the Bronx
A home away from home
Part of MJHS Hospice, The Muriel and Harold Block Residence redefines hospice care by offering patients with a life-limiting illness a home-like place to live, along with the peace of mind that comes with the best in medical care. The residence is designed specifically for the unique needs of hospice patients and their families.
You’ll notice the difference the moment you step through the door. The residence is located in a welcoming apartment building on the grounds of Jewish Home Lifecare, vastly different from an institutional hospital setting. Each of our 16 studio apartments offers a private living environment for you and your family to spend quality time together.
Each of our studio apartments includes:
- Home-like décor and furnishings
- Sleeping accommodations for family
- 32-inch wall-mounted TV and iPod players
- Wireless internet access
- Some suites have balconies
Offering the best in medical care
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. In addition to residential hospice services, MJHS is also authorized to provide an inpatient level of care for patients in need of acute symptom management.
