To become a regional resource as an integral part of a continuum of care throughout the Bay Area that provides senior adults with a variety of life enriching programs and services that are accessible, promote individual dignity, encourage independence, connect them to their community, and reflect the social, cultural, and spiritual values of Jewish tradition.
The philosophy of the Jewish Home of San Francisco is founded on Jewish tradition, which encompasses respect for elders and responsibility for the welfare for others. This tradition takes into account recognition of the support that has been generously given by the community – past, present, and future – and it is understood that it is the cornerstone of our achievements. We further recognize that staff and volunteers are the most important resources.
We understand that our mission can only be achieved through the combined efforts of staff, volunteers, clients, and their caregivers. We provide an environment that encourages people to learn and flourish.
We continuously strive to improve in the delivery of health and social services to the elderly and their caregivers. We provide care that emphasizes and capitalizes on the individual strengths of each client and family member, and embraces the notion of autonomy.
We are accountable for the effective, efficient, and ethical utilization of human, financial, and material resources in fulfilling our mission.
We protect the interests of the elderly and advocate on their behalf by assuming a leadership role, working cooperatively with others to improve health and social service policy.
