Resident’s Children Appreciate Comprehensive Health Services at Lenbrook

At Lenbrook, everything is designed to help residents live their best lives at all stages of life. A defining feature of the community is the variety of programs and services that enhance residents’ lives and assist with short- and long-term healthcare needs – all on one campus. Lenbrook Resident Sam Galanti’s children Louisa Benjamin, Richard Galanti, and Helene Tuck recently saw that in action when he needed specialized healthcare while recovering from a broken hip.

Mr. Galanti spent four weeks in the Lenbrook Medicare-certified Health Care Center and then completed occupational and physical therapy in his residence to continue his healing.

“When Dad broke his hip, the Lenbrook team was there to help him take the next step in his care without leaving the campus,” Mrs. Tuck said. “As a Lenbrook Resident, he had priority access to the Health Care Center. Having the center and rehabilitation floor all right there was like having an extension of his home. We didn’t have to drive to some obscure place to visit him and shuttle back and forth to his home. Being on campus let us and his caregivers easily go to his residence to get things he wanted.”

The Health Services team also helped the sisters navigate the insurance paperwork related to Mr. Galanti’s care.

“The entire Lenbrook team was wonderful and provided cohesive care,” said Mrs. Benjamin. “They answered all our questions in layman’s terms, which was very helpful. They also kept us informed about his care and progress. We knew he was being well cared for at Lenbrook.”

Mr. Galanti moved to Lenbrook almost 10 years ago with his wife Ann. When she passed away a year and a half ago, the Lenbrook team quickly helped her children plan her funeral service, providing a room, food, night Shiva service, and extra valets to assist guests.

Today, Mr. Galanti has recovered from his broken hip. He enjoys going to the sanctuary and Shabbat dinners and services at Lenbrook. He also attends concerts and greets people while enjoying the main floor patio.

“We trusted Lenbrook with Dad’s care, and they came through,” Mrs. Tuck said.

Her sister agrees. “We feel lucky that our parents chose to move to Lenbrook with all its amenities and health services,” Mrs. Benjamin said.
