Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia

Harry's Haven is a specialized unit of MPTF devoted to the care and well being of patients in the entertainment industry with Alzheimer's and related dementia. It occupies a shady, garden-like corner of The Wasserman campus and can accommodate 30 patients.

Harry's Haven is a special place named in memory of Kirk Douglas' father, Harry Deminsky, and in recognition of Mr. Douglas' generous and continuing support of MPTF.

Because Alzheimer's patients need freedom to wander at will, Harry's Haven has enclosed gardens where fresh air and an aviary provide pleasant therapy. Each patient has a private room with common areas filled with Hollywood memorabilia to promote socialization and provide an attractive atmosphere for family visits.

Alzheimer's and other dementia disorders are marked by forgetfulness, confusion, mood swings and difficulty in expressing thoughts. Early detection and evaluations are conducted by our multidisciplinary team, which develops personalized care plans for each of our patients. The staff is trained to create and supervise daily activities that promote physical, mental and social well being.

Long-Term Care

MPTF operates a highly rated 40-bed Long-Term Care unit on The Wasserman Campus. It is a ‘mini community’ of services and support for residents who require 24/7 care. The newly refurbished unit is spacious and consists of both single and double rooms. A dynamic activities department creates stimulating opportunities for these special residents and also provides activities for individuals to socialize and dine in groups for those who are able. Prioritization of space in Long-Term Care is given to existing residents on campus whose needs become elevated and require skilled nursing care.

Working In The Industry is
more than a career, it’s a way of life. Those who devote their lives to this demanding profession share a comradeship that, thanks to MPTF, doesn’t end at retirement. MPTF's residential retirement options are the entertainment industry’s first choice for retirement living.
