Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania CEO Mark D. Weiner

Mark D. Weiner

Dear Friends and Community:

I’m pleased to introduce myself as the new Chief Executive Officer of the Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania.  I’m excited to be here and look forward to advancing our organizational Mission and service to the community.

I thank Rabbi Sandhaus for his strong leadership for nearly 40 years and the entire staff which has been committed to high quality and resident-centered care.  I remain most impressed with the work efforts and results of our entire staff and the strong and passionate leadership of our Executive Committee and Board of Directors.

I've been spending my time meeting with internal staff, Board leadership, and a wide range of civic, religious, business, and philanthropic community leadership. I've spent time throughout Scranton as well as Wilkes-Barre and the Poconos to aid in my understanding of the Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania, its affiliated organizations, the older adult marketplace, and the Northeastern Pennsylvania environment.

Memory Care Resources

A memory loss diagnosis is hard on everyone. Below are videos from our previous educational events that can help those diagnosed with memory loss, and their families learn the next steps to take for the future. We hope you find these videos informative and enlightening. Please reach out to our staff members with questions about caring for loved ones with dementia.

cognitive center

The Cognitive Center of Excellence designation recognizes organizations who are committed to integration of the BCAT® Approach as the standard of care to meet the cognitive needs of the aging adult. Organizations with this level of recognition have a shared philosophy with BCAT® that it is imperative to utilize evidence-based assessments, treatment interventions, and patient engagement activities that are administered by trained staff in order to care manage and maximize functional abilities for those with age related cognitive changes and cognitive decline.

Count me in as a big fan and supporter of the Jewish Home of Eastern PA. I have been familiar with its work and service to the community since I was Mayor of Scranton.

Jim Connors, former Mayor of Scranton

Words cannot express my heartfelt appreciation for the unwavering care provided for my mother during her residency at The Jewish Home. 

Donna Mendicino

After touring several nursing homes in the New York area where I live, I made the decision to place my mother in the Jewish Home in Scranton where I was raised.

Wendy Barker, Armonk, NY

I thank Rabbi Sandhaus and the entire staff at the Jewish Home for the excellent care that they provided my mother, Marie Kerrigan, during her stay prior to her passing.

Thomas P. Kerrigan

It is impossible to say thank you for all the love and caring compassion you showed to our mother, Dorothy Bouselli.

Roseann and Vince Arnone

My husband, Jim, has been a resident of the Jewish Home since the spring of 2018. He is on the Memory Care floor.
I can’t turn the clock back to restore Jim to the smart, loving, talented man I married almost fifty years ago. So the Jewish Home is the very best place he can be. He is well-loved and he is well-cared for and he is safe and content. I visit regularly and I see that each resident is always treated with loving warmth, courtesy, and respect. Many of the staff have worked at the Jewish Home for more than fifteen years and regard this work as their calling. Jim’s dementia is the tragedy of our lives. The Jewish Home is the blessing.

I think what your organization is doing is a great thing. My aunt called me and told me what a great time she had at St. Ann’s Novena today. I think sending the residents to the Novena is such a great thing to honor a tradition. Thank you.

Tammy Tomchak

My sister and brothers and I  are very blessed with a caring and loving third-floor staff who treat our Mom as if she was their family member.  They hug her, they dance with her, they reminisce with her,  they are kind and patient with her.  She doesn’t always participate in activities however the activities staff continually try to engage her. Recently Leaha, activities staff member, knowing our Mom enjoyed the outdoors, took her outside to enjoy a few hours of sunshine!  As Mom would say “today was a good day.” That was a good day for our Mom!

Marykate Gallagher & Family

I am Emily. I’m attending the Friday morning breakfast club. One of my favorite activities. Usually, about two dozen or more people come. We have choices of different foods – cooked in the life enrichment kitchen.  The aroma of the food cooking draws everyone in! I look forward all week to this group. I put my clothes out the night before. I wait for someone to help me in the morning and I get up extra early – much earlier than other days! I wait for someone to say “Time to go!” Pancakes, French toast, fresh fruit, eggs, all different choices. But the best thing is sitting around with your friends at the breakfast club after you eat, in the room that smells so good, enjoying the company and your tea or coffee! Come join us at the Jewish Home!

Emily

I went to the Jewish Home because it has a great reputation. I had the best experience with therapy! I loved my physical therapy. Staff and accommodations were just great. I would recommend them to others.

Rosemary Gallagher

Thank you so much for your tender loving care to my mother. I cried all the way home when she was admitted there in the Fall of 2018 as I thought it would be the last time I would see her alive. She was very ill at that time. What a difference a year makes, especially under your superb care to her! The last time I visited, she told me she is very happy there. She has a group of friends and loves the food (she is a picky eater so this statement says volumes) It makes my heart happy to see how engaged she is and how much time she spends outside her room. Having cared for her for 5 years and as an RN, I know what a challenge this can be. I really appreciate all you do to lovingly care for her. You cannot imagine the peace of mind it gives me. Thank you so much!

Medicaid vs. Medicare

Medicaid vs. Medicare

By Nicole Lipinski, RN, MS, ADC-MC, CDP Medicaid, Medicare – they sound alike? But they are different! What is the difference? Or are they the same? Let’s explore and see if we can figure this out!  Medicaid is both state and federally funded. The program provides benefits based on financial need. Health insurance is provided to low-income Americans of all…

Arthritis

Arthritis

By Nicole Lipinski, RN, MS, ADC- MC, CDP You may notice pain and swelling in your joints as you age. What is that? The general term for this is arthritis. There are many different types of arthritis —however, if you have an overall swelling and tenderness of one or more of your joints you may be experiencing the “pains of…

National Caregiver Month

National Caregiver Month

By Nicole Lipinski, RN, MS, ADC-MC, CDP November is National Family Caregiver Month. This month we celebrate all those who take care of others. National caregiver week began in the mid-1990. However, the importance of caregivers was truly recognized with President Barack Obama’s recognition in 2012. “Across America, daughters and sons balance the work of caring for aging parents with the demands…

Staying Hydrated in the Winter Months

Staying Hydrated in the Winter Months

By Nicole Lipinski, RN, MS, ADC-MC, CDP You may think dehydration is only something you need to think about in the good ole summer. However, it is very possible to suffer from dehydration in the winter. The body’s sweat mechanism is not activated as much in the winter as it is on a hot summer day. Therefore, we are not…

Telehealth Services

Telehealth Services

By Nicole Lipinski, RN, MS, ADC-MC, CDP The concept of telehealth is not really a new concept. This concept in its earliest form dates back to the early 1900s. Pennsylvania was sending radiology images 24 miles via phone lines in the 1940s. The University of Nebraska was the first to use video communication for hospital consultations in 1959. These early…

Enhancing the life of Persons with Dementia

Enhancing the life of Persons with Dementia

By Nicole Lipinski, RN, MS, ADC-MC, CDP We have probably all stumbled upon the list of 101 things to do with someone who has dementia. However, do those things really enhance the quality of life of a person with dementia or are they just things to keep them busy? I would guess keeping someone distracted and busy is OK—but let’s…
