Mission
To provide our Jewish community with those services that enable our seniors or infirm to be part of a quality Jewish environment with comfort, meaning, independence and dignity.

Location
Jewish Home and Care Center is located in the heart of Milwaukee's Jewish cultural and community activities-- right where you want to be! Overlooking Lake Michigan, the views are spectacular year 'round. The beauty of nature surrounds you in parks, beaches and gardens.

Lifestyle
Varied activities are offered during both the days and evenings for residents. They may include entertainment, arts and crafts, music therapy, exercise, gardening, ceramics, special events and celebrations. These may be in large or small groups or even one on one. Activities are adapted to meet resident tastes and care needs. Resident Household/Councils provide suggestions regarding programming desires and general resident life.

Care
The Jewish Home and Care Center is staffed twenty-four hours a day by dedicated nursing staff that includes: Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified Nurses Aides and Restorative Aides. Offering sophisticated care with a personal touch is a hallmark of care at the Jewish Home and Care Center.

The Jewish Home offers comprehensive Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy Services in our state-of-the-art, conveniently located Min Friedman Therapy Center overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan. Our therapy center is designed with a fully functional kitchen, laundry, bedroom and training bathroom to assist our clients in regaining skills for independence at home.

The Jewish Home and Care Center has long been a national leader in dementia care, receiving attention from professionals from around the world. The award-winning, newly redecorated Helen Bader Center offers a home-like environment with all of the support of our caregiving team.

Every neighborhood at the Jewish Home and Care Center has a social worker who helps the residents become acclimated to their households, assists them in their adjustments and addresses their emotional needs. The social workers are liaisons between the Home and the family. 

Affordability
There are many different avenues of payment for the Jewish Home. Please call Elisabeth Blischke in Admissions (414-277-8852, EBlischke@JewishSeniorLiving.org) to discuss which options work best for you. We accept private pay, Medicare, Medicaid and other third-party payers.

Amenities
The Rubenstein Family Kosher Oasis is a dairy restaurant located just off the lobby of the Jewish Home and Care Center. This innovative addition allows the residents the pleasure of "eating out" without ever leaving the building.

Meals are served on linen tablecloths in a neighborhood dining room overlooking Lake Michigan. Kosher food is prepared and served under rabbinical direction. A Certified Dietitian assesses each resident for nutritional needs, developing individual dietary plans. Breakfasts are made to order and are served 8-9:30 a.m. Residents always have a main choice and an alternate at lunch and dinner.

Residents' accomodations are arranged into neighborhoods consisting of two households per floor, based on care needs. The state-of-the-art rooms offer beautiful views, carpeted floors, a lot of personal space and beautiful art work.

Spirituality
The Pastoral Services Department is staffed by two rabbis. Daily and Shabbat services are held in our beautiful Kohl Family Synagogue. Holiday observances include religious services as well as celebrations such as Seders, Chanukah, Purim, Sukkot and life cycle celebrations. Regular ecumenical services are held for non Jewish residents.

The Pastoral Services Department also supports the Caring Partners Volunteer Program, which has been recognized by the Last Acts Foundation as a model program for end-of-life care.
