What makes Roosevelt Care Center different from other long term care centers are our many relationships to the surrounding community.
The Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders has an uninterrupted history of commitment to Roosevelt since its creation in the 1930s. This commitment was exemplified most recently by the Board's planning and construction of Roosevelt Care Center at Old Bridge. We work cooperatively with certain departments in County government to provide services, and the office of Parks and Recreation within Roosevelt Park is especially helpful during extreme weather and emergency situations. Currently, the Board of Freeholders and county officials are working with Roosevelt administration on plans to offer a comprehensive program to help seniors live safely at home with the assistance of health care professionals on the Roosevelt Edison Campus.
Since 1997, the management of Roosevelt Care Center has been carried out by the Middlesex County Improvement Authority, an independent County authority that oversees programs throughout Central Jersey. The Authority is committed to improving the lives of Middlesex County residents through its professional management and expertise.
Not only is Roosevelt Care Center a part of the Middlesex County community, but the administration and staff welcome the community through its doors 365 days a year. Local clergy conduct religious services and offer one-on-one counseling to residents, and faith-based groups offer entertainment and participate in recreation programs throughout the year. Through our extensive recreation programs, we offer our residents a wide variety of performances from local musicians and entertainers. Local schoolchildren perform on some units, and other school groups come in to do craft projects. Community volunteers interact with Roosevelt residents in many ways…some pay one-on-one visits, some conduct classes, others escort residents to religious services and there is an ongoing pet therapy program as well.
Our coffee shops and our café attract residents, staff, visitors, vendors, service providers and other members of the public. Residents tell us time and time again that these venues are places where they can relax and socialize and enjoy the camaraderie of everyday life.
Roosevelt's two campuses also host meetings and professional seminars for various organizations, including the New Jersey Dept. of Health and Senior Services.
Roosevelt has been fortunate to receive monetary donations from families and other members of the public, often in honor of and in memorial to loved ones. These funds are used to benefit our residents. The generosity and good wishes of the community donors are always an indication to us of the appreciation for the excellent care that we are able to provide.
