Construction Begins on Los Angeles' First New Continuing Care Retirement Community Facility in Over a Decade

RESEDA, Calif., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The renowned nonprofit Los Angeles Jewish Home today broke ground on the first new urban Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) facility in over a decade, the newest in California and the fastest-selling CCRC in the history of the state.

One hundred years after the city's first senior housing was created in Hollenbeck, Los Angeles still has few CCRCs in relation to the number of elderly residing in the region. Fountainview at Eisenberg Village, the Home's new CCRC, will be dedicated to providing active seniors with housing options consisting of one- and two-bedroom apartments. The community will also provide residents with a variety of on-site amenities including a progressive fitness center, spa and salon, screening room, creative arts studio, business center, library, coffee bar, and game room. The daily calendar will be filled with classes, clubs, and other activities.

"As the largest single-source provider of senior housing in the western United States," said the Home's President and CEO Molly Forrest, "we feel a tremendous responsibility to continually expand to meet the housing needs of this area's seniors. Fountainview is a progressive step unparalleled in Los Angeles."

Construction for Fountainview is expected to begin in January 2008. At this time, over 85 percent of the apartment homes are reserved.

Founded in 1912, the world-renowned Los Angeles Jewish Home is one of the foremost multilevel senior-living communities in the United States and the largest single-source provider of senior housing in Los Angeles. In total, the Home annually serves more than 2,000 seniors through our extraordinary continuum of services. Each year, more than 1,500 women and men are cared for in-residence on two village campuses, with services including independent-living "Neighborhood Home" accommodations, residential care, skilled nursing care, acute psychiatric care, Alzheimer's disease and dementia care. Another 500 seniors are served through the Home's community-based programs, which includes Skirball Hospice and community clinics. The Home is a nonprofit organization that relies upon donations from individuals, corporations and foundations to continue its remarkable work. Further information regarding the Home can be found online at or by calling 818-757-4407.
