During the week of February 10, 2020, Isabella Geriatric Center, part of the MJHS Health System located in New York, NY, successfully launched Comfort Matters in their Short-Term Rehabilitation program. They are the first organization in the United States to offer the Comfort Matters program to short-term rehabilitation staff and patients. Isabella Center is located in upper Manhattan and has pioneered the care of older adults since 1875. Comfort Matters has proudly partnered with Isabella Center’s memory care neighborhoods over the past 8 years. All three memory care neighborhoods have achieved the Comfort Matters accredited status and are designated Comfort Matters Accredited Providers. We are looking forward to working with our friends at Isabella Center as they begin this new chapter in giving comfort to their residents and staff.
