Our integrated continuing care retirement community will allow people to age in place through a new licensed Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly program, in addition to the skilled nursing, short-term rehab and acute psychiatric services already on site. The new buildings will more efficiently comply with city building requirements, as well as update the site to coincide with contemporary innovations in aging services.
The Jewish Home is a nonprofit organization that has served the Bay Area’s older adults for over 140 years, providing high-quality care, services and programs, and giving our older adults a place they can call “home.” Well-established in the Excelsior district for nearly 90 years, the Jewish Home proposes to rebuild on its current site and remain a good neighbor for generations to come. Rated a five-star skilled nursing facility by the United States Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Home plans to continue providing a welcoming, stimulating environment and excellent services delivered by compassionate and experienced health personnel. Over the years, the Home has grown, evolved, and diversified its facilities and services in response to the changing needs of older adults and their families. This project is an important stage in that evolution.
The project will allow the Jewish Home to better serve our community and bring our facilities up to 21st-century standards of care. We have made a commitment and have the moral obligation to continue to provide exceptional care and services, but cannot honor this responsibility with our current facilities.
The Jewish Home is proud of its track record of community involvement and associated community benefits. We will continue to work with local residents and merchants, and enrich that reputation throughout this process.
As is our custom, the Jewish Home commits to being responsive throughout this process. We will implement a hotline phone number to make communication with our team as seamless as possible. Our team is also committed to minimizing any impacts on the community during the construction process. What we are doing is necessary, but we will do it in a way that minimizes impacts for our neighbors. We have hired a parking and traffic consultant to analyze and develop a plan to mitigate potential problems.
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.
