USC Students Visit the Jewish Home
Graduate students enrolled in USC's Leonard Davis School of Gerontology recently visited the Jewish Home to learn what it was like to run a non-profit retirement and residential care community. The visit was part of their class, Cases in Leadership and Change Management, taught by Dr. Edward Schneider who is a member of the Jewish Home's Board of Directors.
CEO-President Molly Forrest spoke to the students about strategic planning, decision making, and caring for seniors. She explained, "We share what we do with others in the hope seniors get better care overall." The students also received an in-depth tour of the Los Angeles Jewish Home.
"Each year I bring my students out to the Jewish Home because I want them to get an example of excellence in senior living and long-term care," said Dr. Schneider. He polled the students on the worthwhile nature of their visit. One hundred per cent of them found the visit rewarding. "Students have told me over the years that their vision of nursing care was totally changed after their visit to the Jewish Home."
