Los Angeles Jewish Home Increases Resident Capacity and Adds New Programs to Address Community Needs
Date:6/10/2008

RESEDA, Calif., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The famed nonprofit Los Angeles Jewish Home -- the largest single-source provider of senior housing in Los Angeles -- has completed a series of program and building expansions resulting in increased capacity at its San Fernando Valley campuses. As a result, for the first time in many years, the Home has increased its ability to accept new residents in need of skilled nursing care. In addition, the Home is now able to offer short-term rehabilitative or "transitional care" for seniors recovering from an illness or accident and respite care.

"The long-awaited opening of our new Joyce Eisenberg-Keefer Medical Center late last year provides the Home increased capacity for skilled nursing admissions," said Molly Forrest, chief executive officer and president. In the past, explains Forrest, the Home's skilled nursing beds were usually taken by its residential care seniors who "aged in place" and advanced to skilled nursing care. As a result, the Home was rarely available for community admissions to the skilled care level. "Now we can accommodate more people, and that is vitally important as society continues to age," said Forrest.

The offering of short-term rehabilitative care by the Jewish Home fills a tremendous community void. According to Forrest, 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. "Now, those in need can come here for a short-term stay to get their energy and zip back before returning home ... and that benefits the patient and their loved ones."

Rehabilitative care residents will receive physical, occupational and speech therapy, as needed, as well as all of the high-quality services and programs for which the Jewish Home is renowned.

The Jewish Home can also provide respite care for caregivers. The Home will admit residents on a short-term basis enabli
