Deaconess Krafft Center

Deaconess-Krafft Center is a six-story apartment community specifically designed for older adults who are at least 62 years of age as well as a limited number of non-elderly disabled individuals 18 years and older. There are 97 one-bedroom units, three two-bedroom units and one unit for a live-in custodian. Five of the units are handicap accessible designed to benefit the mobility impaired and the building is equipped for those who are hearing and/or visually impaired.

The community is located in Cleveland’s historic Old Brooklyn neighborhood on the near west side and is in close proximity to a post office, pharmacies,
restaurants, retail business, churches, medical and dental offices, and public transportation.  The community neighbors the MetroHealth Old Brooklyn Campus and Senior Health and Wellness Center where there is access to physicians of many different specialties as well as a pharmacy, beauty shop, and a cafeteria.

Deaconess-Krafft Center features a large attached Senior Center that is operated by Senior Citizen Resources, Inc. (SCR), a local non-profit organization whose mission is to provide supportive services to Seniors in the Old Brooklyn neighborhood. The Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and is available to residents of Deaconess-Krafft Center and Deaconess-Zane Center (our sister facility directly across the street from Deaconess-Krafft Center) as well as Seniors living in the surrounding community. A full range of services are available to participants at little or no cost including a daily hot meal program Monday through Friday, homebound meals-on-wheels, various recreational activities (bingo, card parties, crafts, games, exercise, line dancing, computer classes, special trips, and Senior Olympics), transportation to medical appointments and shopping, Post Office-On-Wheels, nurse consultations, health screenings, educational seminars, annual flu and pneumonia vaccination program, and volunteer placement.  SCR also provides a wide array of social services to assist participants deal with various personal issues such as Medicare or Medicaid reimbursement, Social Security and SSI assistance, medical or prescription issues, nutrition, intervention, advocacy, and family involvement. After hours, Deaconess-Krafft Center residents can use the Center at their leisure to play games, build puzzles, play the piano, or socialize with friends or neighbors.

Deaconess-Krafft Center residents enjoy the use of “day rooms” located on select floors of the six-story building where they can socialize with friends and neighbors.  There is also a spacious lobby area on the first floor that has ample seating areas and abundant amounts of natural light. An outside Courtyard with benches, picnic table, an arbor and fountain provide a tranquil outdoor space for relaxation and socialization. There is also a library for residents to enjoy.  There are three laundry rooms equipped with coin-operated washers and dryers and folding tables enabling the residents to do their laundry on site.

The management offices are located directly across the street at Deaconess-Zane Center for ease in communication for the residents. There are supportive maintenance areas dedicated to the continued maintenance and operation of the community. There are trash collection rooms/chutes on each floor.  An answering service is available for residents with maintenance emergencies both before and after office hours and on weekends and holidays.

The community has a “key FOB” door entry system as well as automatic doors for the resident’s convenience and added security.

Each resident’s unit is accessed through interior corridors. The typical unit design provides one or two bedrooms, a kitchen with a pass-through counter, refrigerator, range, and vent.

The mobility impaired, accessible units have roll-in showers for ease of access for those residents in wheelchairs. They also have appropriate appliances, counter and sinks, and turning radius to meet the special needs of the mobility impaired.
