My father just had surgery and is now home recuperating. He needs more help than my mother and I can offer. How can the Home help?
For seniors returning home from a hospital stay, our Care Transitions program coordinates healthcare and rehabilitation services free of charge for Medicare beneficiaries. The goal is to improve long-term outcomes for seniors after hospitalization for illness, surgeries, or setbacks, and reduce the number of hospital readmissions. And once home, our new Home Health Agency delivers physician-prescribed services and treatments right in the comfort of your parents’ home. The Connections to Care hotline can help you find the services you need: 855.227.3745.

How is the Jewish Home’s Alzheimer’s program different from others?
In the past, Alzheimer’s care facilities often sacrificed a home-like feeling in the interests of safety and security. Today, the Home’s Goldenberg•Ziman Special Care Center leads the way in the new era of environments that maximize comfort without compromising safety and care.

The Goldenberg•Ziman Center was designed in response to the most advanced research about how a patient’s physical environment affects his or her behavior, sense of well-being, and even visible symptoms of the disease.
