The Jewish Home is on the verge of an exciting physical transition to better meet the diverse needs of the region’s aging population. Over the years, the Jewish Home has enlarged and expanded its original facilities in response to the changing needs of the aging population, and this project is an important stage in that evolution. The project is being designed as a joint venture of Ankrom Moisan and Van Meter Williams Pollack, LLP, as well as The Smith Group (for The Square). We plan to break ground in 2016. We will broaden our services by:
- Building some new, modern facilities.
- Removing some structures that have reached the end of their useful life and maintaining other structures that continue to serve our residents and allow us to implement our future plans.
- We will continue to offer short-stay rehabilitation, an acute care psychiatric hospital, and skilled nursing.
- We will now also provide licensed residential care, such as assisted living and memory care.
- We will provide a marketplace with senior-oriented services called The Square that will assist seniors to remain in their own homes and age in place.
THE JEWISH HOME
A proud resident of the Excelsior district for over 90 years, the Jewish Home is a nonprofit organization that has served San Franciscans for more than 140 years. We provide high-quality care, services, and programs that give Bay Area elderly a place they can call home. The Home has become a national model for geriatric care, and plans to continue to provide a welcoming environment and excellent services delivered by compassionate and experienced health personnel and remain a good neighbor for generations to come.
The Jewish Home is proud of our track record of community involvement. We strive to be a good neighbor and are committed to minimizing any impacts on the community during the construction process – including traffic, noise, and debris. We will be readily available to respond to any concerns and will implement a hotline phone number to make communication with our team as seamless as possible. We will continue to work with local residents and merchants to provide updates on construction throughout the development process. A website for the project will also be developed in the coming weeks with more information.
The Jewish Home will be developing The Square, a destination for services, support, and community, on a day-basis for a wide range of older adults, their families, and caregivers. The Square will provide amenities such as a café, wellness services, education and entertainment spaces, a site-serving pharmacy, a beauty salon, and other similar services. Jewish Home residents will have access to The Square, as will non-resident seniors. Seniors who meet the Jewish Home’s requirements will be eligible to purchase membership for The Square’s services and amenities.
We look forward to actively engaging neighbors and merchants before and after we break ground on the project. As our plans move forward, members of the public will have the opportunity to weigh in and provide comments to the City.
