We take very seriously our responsibility for your loved one’s safety and well-being.

October 1, 2021, Letter to Family and Friends

As we turn the calendar to October, we enter a time when many had hoped the pandemic would be behind us. However, in the past few weeks, the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant has risen. We are very thankful that a great percentage of our residents, their families and our staff have received the vaccine. COVID boosters and flu shots…

September 24, 2021, Letter to Family and Friends

We cannot stress enough the importance of vaccinations to curb the spread of COVID-19’s Delta variant. They are a matter of safety as well as compliance with the federal government’s plan to mandate vaccines for health care workers at Medicare and Medicaid facilities. Nationwide, the median nursing home staff vaccination rate has hovered at around 64%, according to recent federal statistics. About 84%…

September 17, 2021, Letter to Family and Friends

The federal government’s sweeping plan to mandate vaccines for health care workers at Medicare and Medicaid facilities is intended to curb the surging Delta variant and to address the slow pace of COVID-19 vaccinations. The Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will issue a similar rule requiring vaccinations for workers in most healthcare facilities that receive reimbursement,…

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.


I love reading the residents’ messages. Keep them coming. You do a great job!

Ann Marie Schneider

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

Thank you so much for the beautiful care and enrichment you bring to our loved ones’ lives each and every day, especially during these trying times.

Carmel Courtney Garan

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

Thank you to all of the staff for everything you do. It’s a difficult job, but you are always so kind and understanding when I call to ask about my mother. I miss being able to visit her but know she’s in good hands. And a special shout-out to the staff on the 5th floor!

Ellen McGuire

I know no one who is more deserving of moments of relaxation and peace than the incredible team at the Jewish Home. Thanks for all that you do!

Ann Courtney Frisbie

I will always remember the maintenance man hooking up my brother’s TV that weekend evening…”no problem.” I will always remember Claudia’s patient, empathetic and kind manner. I will always remember the kitchen sending up carafes of hot coffee, cold drinks and snacks.

Maureen Bell Asterbadi

Stay safe, all!

Lisa Krawitz

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

It was at the Jewish Home where my brother’s physical and emotional needs were met. Because his vocal skills were compromised, he communicated through touch. The staff always returned his hug, kisses on the hand, or handshake willingly, and called him by name. I will never forget how this touched me when I first saw these exchanges. 

Maureen Bell Asterbadi

Thanks so much to all of you!
