Superior adult day center offering older adults companionship, enrichment, and a sense of belonging... day by day


Dear Janice,
I do not know if you will remember me, but my husband Bob Kurland was a guest of yours for a couple of wonderful months. He thrived at the JuliaRuth House; but unfortunately he had to leave. From then on it was a real rough ride. I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful videos you had sent to me daily of Bob dancing and leading lines, etc. I look at them frequently and they make me smile. I am so grateful to you for giving me these wonderful gifts. I also thank you for the wonderful birthday pillow of Bob. What a great memento of the wonderful experience he had with all of you.

I will never forget your kindness and the caring you showed to Bob, and to everyone else under your care. You continued to make Bob, and everyone else, a viable person. JuliaRuth House is the very best in taking care of our loved ones.

Bob passed away on January 17th. He had a rough ride after he left JuliaRuth House, but he is now at peace.

With Much Gratitude,

Dear Julia & Staff of Julia Ruth House

Thank you so much for the care you gave to Joe and all the kind things you did for me as the caregiver. It made life a little easier.

God Bless you all,
Kay H., Needham

Dear Julia,
We can't thank you enough for all you have done for Dad and my family.
You and your home and everyone associated with you are truly wonderful.

Dear Julia & Staff,

I want to thank you for all your kindness toward my mother when she was under your care.
I know somewhere in there she had better days because of you. She always told me how you liked her because she was such a help to you. Lucky You!
We will keep in touch with you.

“A Hidden Jewel in our own Neighborhood”

Marion Aymie, Dedham

“The Julia Ruth House offers an invaluable service for our elderly and their families. The atmosphere is comfortable, warm and inviting. The staff is always upbeat, friendly, caring and supportive.
This program is unique and considers each individual’s needs.
We are very thankful that we found The Julia Ruth House and know our mother is in good hands when she is there.”

Lori Diamond, Walpole

“The Julia Ruth House has been an outstanding day center provider for my mother. The warm, welcoming, staff cares deeply about my mother’s welfare and well-being. We have all been blessed by this relationship.”

Thomas E. Walsh Jr., Westwood

“One of the best decisions we have made was to enroll Mom and Dad in The Julia Ruth House day program. Not only did Julia’s beautiful home and grounds remind my parents of their own home, but the compassionate care given to them gave me peace of mind while I worked. Mom loved the entertainment and socialization with the other guests and staff while Dad enjoyed the delicious meals and the sports.
Dad looked forward to attending “The Club” each day where he knew that he was always amongst friends.”

Pat Paulin, Needham

Dear Julia and Staff,
“Peggy and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for the highly professional, friendly and empathetic care extended to Pop. Your reputation of being the “best” is well deserved. We look forward to Pop’s “returning” in the near future.”

“I want to thank the staff at The Julia Ruth House for the wonderful care you have given my wife. Solverg is my love and I would not trust her to just anyone. Let it be known that the care given at JRH is outstanding! Thank you!!!”

Dear Julia, Eileen & Staff,
“Thank you so much for the care you give to Joe and all the kind things you do for me. It makes life a little easier.
God bless you all.”

Kay H., Needham

“To all of you who have touched Leo’s life and made it easier for him in his situation – a great big THANK YOU! He is doing well in the nursing home. I think the adjustment was easier because he went to the Julia Ruth House first.
With much admiration for the work you do, thank you again. I am most grateful.”


Dear Julia,
“Your JRH care center has set the goal for us searching for a similar quality facility here in Tampa. When I first came to Tampa 11 months ago, it was to move both Bunny and myself down ASAP. Unfortunately, I found many barriers mostly regarding home health aides. Again our aides in Boston set a standard which was impossible to match.
I was frustrated but continued to work on the problem. Finally, the solution was to interview and hire and train my own people. I have done that and Bunny and I are reunited. She is happy and I am finally complete again.
I am grateful for your care and bless your continued good works.”

Justin, Tampa, FL

The Julia Ruth house is awesome! My mom recently started a few weeks ago. The staff are the most loving group of people. They’ve made my mom feel so welcome. She feels like she’s spending the day with close friends every day. As soon as you pull up the driveway this lovely home welcomes you with it’s beautifully landscaped property. I’m so grateful to the great staff there❤️

My aunt is fortunate to be a guest at the Julia Ruth House. Thank you for taking such good care of her and for making her feel so special everyday she visits.

I was so lucky to find the Julia Ruth House for my husband with Early Onset Alzheimer's. He loved going because the staff is incredible. They filled his day with purpose and caring. A very special place with a very special staff.

We loved having Mike... He will be missed.

Julia Ruth House has saved my life on many levels not the least being a safe and active place for my husband, who has early onset and we are often the youngest in a group. All of the caregivers and Julia herself treat their guests as family and the caregivers feel that with every smile as you walk in the door. It is a place of compassion and empathy and every guest leaves an imprint on their hearts and it shows. Thanks to Julia, Janice and the whole care crew for giving our loved ones such special care.
And, for giving us caregivers the time to think or work or just sit and wonder.
We are blessed by such a place

Jane Brown

I cannot say enough about the Julia Ruth House. I feel good every time I drop my mother off there because I know that she is well taken care of and she loves being there. My mother often raves about the Julia Ruth House to family and friends. The staff is very warm, friendly, loving, and caring. Everyone is treated like family including the individuals who drop off and pick up the guests. There are plenty of activities including games, crafts, entertainment, and celebrations (such as birthdays, holidays, and sports related). Also, the facility is very nice.
