All positives for project’s process with the City!

From unanimous approval by San Francisco commissioners and support from supervisors, to remarks from people connected to the Jewish Home, the City’s hearings’ process gave both heart and heft to our transformational project that will positively change how our community delivers aging services to older adults, including our frail and vulnerable.

The Jewish Home of San Francisco’s mission is to enrich
the quality of life of older adults.

From its modest beginnings in 1871, the Jewish Home of San Francisco has grown and diversified to provide services for many different older adults with multiple and unique care and service needs and at various income levels.

Operated by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, the Jewish Home serves approximately 1,800 patients and residents each year on its nine-acre campus. Non-residential care is offered through the Home’s short-term and rehabilitation services unit for patients who require geriatric-specialized, interdisciplinary rehabilitation to recover from surgery or an acute illness, and through its acute geriatric psychiatry hospital. The Home is affiliated with the University of California, San Francisco for teaching and research. Admission to the Jewish Home is not limited by religious or cultural affiliation.

As a U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services five-star rated facility for quality in care and with a complement of almost 700 compassionate, experienced clinical and allied health personnel, the Jewish Home provides seniors with a variety of life-enriching healthcare programs and services in a welcoming, stimulating environment.

The Jewish Home is part of Jewish Senior Living Group, a growing regional network of programs, services, and communities that enrich the lives of seniors.
