Senior Health Services in Scranton, PA Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!


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.

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!

We were very impressed with the care our dear friend received at the Jewish Home. She came to the Jewish Home to receive rehabilitation services however she did end up needing end of life care. The staff were compassionate and gave superb care to our friend. The staff are wonderful. We would recommend the Jewish Home!
