The Jewish Home of Eastern PA Letter from Leadership

You are all so amazing! The outpouring of cards and notes we’ve received through our “Love Letter Link” program has been heart-warming, and the response to the “Rainbow Hunt” has been really overwhelming! We receive dozens of rainbows every day in every form and we’re hanging them in hallways, windows, and residents’ rooms. They have brightened all our days. Thank you and keep ‘em coming!

As I said in my note earlier this week, this continues to be a most difficult time, certainly for all of you on the outside and for our team on the inside. We know that families who are separated from loved ones are struggling with that distance, and we’re doing all we can to keep you connected.

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.

Stay safe, all!

Lisa Krawitz

I miss seeing my parents. Thank you for keeping them safe.

Renee Rinaldoni Puchalski

Thanks for all you do and for keeping us informed! It means so much to me to be able to Facetime my mom every day. Thank you for setting this up! It means a lot to our families.

Mari Saville Ross

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.

Peggie Hannan

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

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

Thanks so much to all of you!

Kenneth Courtney

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

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

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