Los Angeles Jewish Home Adds Short-Term Rehabilitative Care to Family of Services
Date:2/22/2010

RESEDA, Calif., Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to help meet the needs of seniors in the greater Los Angeles area, the Los Angeles Jewish Home has added short-term rehabilitative care to its comprehensive family of services.  Now open for community admissions, the Ida Kayne Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is designed to help seniors successfully transition back to daily life after an illness, accident, or hospital stay by providing physical, occupational, and speech therapies.  Located in the Mark Taper Building at the Home's Grancell Village campus in Reseda, the Ida Kayne TCU welcomes individuals 55 and over.  Average length of stay is 2-6 weeks, though longer stays of up to 90 days are possible.

The Jewish Home's interdisciplinary team approach to recovery and wellness combines onsite medical care, prescribed therapies, personal coaching and counseling, and high quality nutrition.  Treatment at the Ida Kayne TCU includes:

  • joint replacement rehabilitation
  • stroke and neurological rehabilitation
  • orthopedic post-hospitalization care
  • post-medical and post-surgical recovery
  • adaptive equipment instruction and conditioning.

Rehabilitative care residents have access to the high-quality services and programs offered at the Jewish Home.  "All of our programs incorporate the Home's nationally acclaimed model of comprehensive care and treatment by attending to the needs of the whole person in a calm nurturing environment," says Molly Forrest, CEO-President of the Jewish Home.

The Home's efforts to offer short-term rehabilitative care fills a tremendous community void. "Many older adults are not ready to return home following a hospitalization for illness or injury, but no longer require the intense level of care found at an acute care hospital," says Forrest.  "In addition, abbreviated hospital stays are now standard practice for many insurance companies.  Now, those in need can come to the Home for a short-term stay to get their energy and zip back before returning to their home ... and that benefits the patient and their loved ones."

Founded in 1912, the world-renowned Los Angeles Jewish Home is one of the foremost multi-level 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 1,700 seniors through our extraordinary continuum of services. Each year, more than 1,200 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, and 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.
