Living and Thriving on Campus
Residential Life on The Wasserman Campus
Creativity is ageless and MPTF’s retirement community has, for generations, been at the center of an MPTF’s legacy to countless people in the entertainment industry who seek a warm, inviting, supportive place to spend their retirement years.

Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Harry’s Haven is a specialized unit of MPTF devoted to the care and well being of entertainment industry members with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related conditions. It occupies a shady, garden-like corner of The Wasserman campus and can accommodate 40 residents.
Harry’s Haven is a special place named in memory of Kirk Douglas’ father, Harry Demsky, and in recognition of Mr. Douglas’ generous and continuing support of MPTF.
Because individuals with dementia need freedom to wander at will, Harry’s Haven has enclosed gardens where fresh air and an aviary provide environmental therapy. Each resident has a private room, and common areas filled with Hollywood memorabilia to promote socialization and provide an attractive atmosphere for family visits.
Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related conditions 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 residents. The staff is trained to create and supervise daily activities that promote physical, mental and social well being.
MPTF operates a highly rated 40-bed Long-Term Care unit on The Wasserman Campus, The Mary Pickford House, 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.
