The Jewish Home Family held its annual meeting on June 20. Board members from all of its entities — Jewish Home at Rockleigh, Jewish Home Assisted Living, Jewish Home Foundation, and Jewish Home at Home — were represented, as well as staff, volunteers, and community members. A barbecue preceded the meeting, and a music video made by staff and residents of the Jewish Home and a short film documenting the Jewish Home Family Centennial Mission to Israel were shown.
Lisa Mactas of Woodcliff Lake and Daniel Hochstadt of Englewood are joining the Jewish Home Family’s board.
“We were thrilled to have a large attendance, and the room was filled with great energy as we described some of our new and ongoing projects,” the Jewish Home Family’s president and CEO, Carol Silver Elliott, said. “These new ventures are all focused on making sure that the Jewish Home Family continues to understand and meet the needs of our community into the future. As health care changes and the number of older adults increases, we are adjusting to meet these changes, ensuring that we will continue to be of service, and be viable, for future generations.”
Some of the those ventures include upgrades to the Gallen Day Center; new and cutting-edge innovations in the Jewish Home Family’s sub-acute rehabilitation programs; opening New Jersey’s only elder abuse shelter, SeniorHaven for Elder Abuse Prevention, and this summer’s launch of a Senior Driver Safety program.
