Clients are referred by a physician's written order, and treatments are provided according to a plan of care jointly developed by the referring physician, the person receiving care, the caregiver, and others. Home health care services are available to adults over 19 years of age in the Greater Los Angeles Area.

The Ida Kayne Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is designed to help seniors successfully recover from an illness, injury, medical procedure, or acute hospital stay. The TCU provides short-term rehabilitative and skilled nursing care. Patients in the TCU receive treatment from physicians and geriatric specialists in physical, occupational, and speech therapy. The average length of stay ranges between two to six weeks. When possible, TCU seniors discharged home may transition with short-term skilled nursing and/or rehabilitative therapies through Jewish Home Care Services.

Auerbach Geriatric Psychiatry Unit (AGPU) is certified to treat both voluntary and involuntary admissions, AGPU provides short-term geriatric psychiatric care to individuals over the age of 55 who are experiencing stressful mental or emotional challenges that require intensive, short-term acute hospital psychiatric care. Most commonly treated diagnoses are depression, bipolar disorders, post-traumatic stress disease (PTSD), schizophrenia, delirium, and Alzheimer's or other age-related dementia with behavioral disturbance. The average length of stay is 10-14 days. The primary care physician is kept informed during the patient's stay, and follow-up appointments are made with the patient's physician as a part of the discharge plan.
