Hebrew Rehabilitation Center provides post-acute rehabilitative care and long-term care at two locations: Boston and Dedham. Our goal is always the same - to help individuals regain as much independence as possible. That independence can mean going home after recovering from an illness or surgery or setting meaningful goals as a long-term care resident. For individuals receiving care in our outpatient department, it means regaining strength and learning new strategies for renewed vitality.
In Boston, HRC is located at 1200 Centre Street at the VFW Parkway, minutes from the Longwood Medical Area and convenient to public transportation.
In Dedham, HRC is located at 7000 Great Meadow Road on the NewBridge on the Charles campus, conveniently located off Route 128.
The Hebrew Rehabilitation Center volunteer corps includes over 300 individuals, ranging in age from 16 to 90+. Newbridge accepts some student volunteers age 13-16. Our volunteers are retirees, professionals, students, family members, and others. We count on our volunteers to improve the quality of our residents' lives in a variety of ways. All are welcome to volunteer!
We know that everyone has many obligations and commitments, and that's why we encourage you to set your own schedule. You may decide to volunteer days or evenings, an hour or two a week, or once a month - no matter how much time you give, you will make a difference! You will receive on-the-job training and supervision... and an opportunity to belong to a wonderful group of caring people.
HRC offers a volunteer program throughout the year for teens from 16-18 years old. We value our student volunteers, many of whom continue to volunteer well into adulthood. Junior volunteers will be accepted based on maturity, qualifications, and the current needs of HRC and must commit to 25 hours during a six month period if the service is during the school year. Students sign a contract with us and in return, we attest to community service hours.
Additionally, each spring a deadline is posted for summer applications. Summer student volunteers must commit to a minimum of 25 hours per month during an eight week summer, and will adhere to the same contract as school year volunteers.
