Levels of Service
Health Care Center
Exceptional ‘round the clock caregiving
The Eleanor F. Daly Health Care Center at Roland Park Place provides both long-term care and short-term rehabilitation stays for Residents. This wellness offering is a component of Roland Park Place’s “continuing care” services. Because services like physical therapy or the Health Care Center are available when needed, the continuum of care offers a peace of mind in knowing that potential needs have already been well planned for. Additionally, for single Residents, any stay in the Health Care Center – temporary or long-term – is included in their monthly service fee, meaning there is no extra cost for this continuum of care for Residents or their caring family members.
The Health Care Center offers exceptional care to all in addition to:
- A private room and private bathroom for every Resident, regardless of physical or cognitive ability level.
- A caring team of highly-trained nursing staff including Geriatric Nurse Practitioners, RNs, LPNs, Certified Geriatric Nursing Assistants (CGNAs) and Certified Medication Aides (CMAs).
- A licensed nurse on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
- A scheduled Nurse Practitioner five days a week.
- A ratio of care giving staff to Residents of 1:1.6.
- Other specialist staff including a full time chaplain, social worker and a team of activities professionals.
- Unlimited access to a full range of activities throughout the community including lectures, concerts and more.
Roland Park Place participates in the Medicare program for all eligible Residents. We do not accept Medical Assistance (Medicaid), however private pay accommodations are available once the Medicare Skilled Care benefit no longer applies.

Where we get to take care of you
Through a partnership with Genesis Healthcare, Roland Park Place offers on-site physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and aquatic therapy. These services are offered in the Health Care Center to current Residents who may need to regain their strength after a joint replacement, a surgery or other hospitalization. Physical therapy can teach recuperating Residents how to prevent or manage their conditions so that they can achieve long-term independence. Outpatient therapy is also available for Residents who do not require a temporary stay in the Health Care Center.
Around the clock physicians, nurses, therapists and other geriatric nursing specialists are available to assist transitioning Residents from hospitalization back into Independent Living.
Ambulatory Care Center
World-class primary care, right on campus
With everything else on campus, we thought primary care should be, too. Operating much like an independent outpatient clinic, the Esther Jacoby Ambulatory Care Center offers convenience in medical care and services coupled with world-class physicians and staff.
Roland Park Place Residents can maintain relationships with their current doctor or to utilize the expertise of the physicians, nurse practitioners and nurses of the Esther Jacoby Ambulatory Care Center. Because of the convenient location and access to care on-site whenever needed, many Residents opt to select Roland Park Place doctors for their primary care. Visiting specialists including a dermatologist, audiologist and podiatrist eliminate the need for Residents to spend much time traveling to and from doctor appointments.
If a Resident does have a need to visit a doctor outside of Roland Park Place, transportation is included in the monthly service fee for all appointments within a ten-mile radius.
The best personal assistant you’ve ever had
Designed with everyday Resident needs in mind, our personal assistance program, PAL, is available for Residents who might need additional help with daily chores or other specific activities. PAL offers extra services to Residents on an a la carte-basis, allowing Residents to pick and choose the services they need under a modest, customized fee structure.
PAL staff including Certified Geriatric Nursing Assistants, Drivers, Housekeepers or Registered Nurses (RNs) depending on the requested service, provide an extra pair of hands and a friendly smile while assisting with personal care and housekeeping tasks and enables Residents to remain in their apartments longer, retaining an independent lifestyle.
