Short-term and Rehabilitation Services
The short-term and rehabilitation services (STARS) unit caters to seniors of all races, ethnicities, and religious backgrounds seeking specialized medical and rehabilitation services, usually following an acute illness, and with the goal of returning to the general community.
Short-term care residents enjoy the same high standards of interdisciplinary care and services available on all units of the Jewish Home.
Length of stay generally ranges from one to eight weeks, and is based on the physician’s determination of medical need.
Acute Geriatric Psychiatry Hospital
Our 12-bed licensed acute geriatric psychiatry hospital serves older individuals who voluntarily seek assistance for their acute psychiatric diagnosis. We are also licensed to admit persons on an involuntary basis. Admission is open to the general community as well as to the Home's residents. It is not limited by religious or cultural affiliation.
Our diagnostic and treatment services emphasize socialization, reality orientation, and independence.
Patients benefit from one-to-one interaction with geriatric specialists, psychiatric nurses, licensed social worker, recreation therapist, and recreation coordinator.
All rooms are private and tailored to suit patients' individual needs, comfort and safety.
