Jewish Home of Rochester

Skilled Nursing

“The concept of living as if you were in your own home is very, very exciting.”

- Bill

We care for you and care about you

Care here comes in many forms. Much of the time it’s physical or medical, but there is also an ever-present attention to emotional care. Whether it’s taking the time to look at photographs of a resident’s grandchildren, talking about one of their recent activities or simply saying hi with a smile every morning, this “family” culture is at the core of who we are and why our quality of care is well known in the community.

The Jewish Home of Rochester is ranked among the top ten percent of nursing homes nationwide by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Five-Star Quality Rating, earning 5 out of 5 stars. Ratings are based on more than 180 regulatory standards designed to protect residents, including having superior staffing levels, and achieving high performance on 16 clinical quality measures. CMS created this rating system to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes.

The highly trained, on-site medical staff are employees—which enables them to provide consistent care and helps foster deeper bonds between our residents and staff. What’s more, our interdisciplinary team works collaboratively to provide a total-care approach, customized for each resident’s needs.

We’re taking person-centered care to the next level by updating our campus to provide even more choice, autonomy and control for all residents across our various services to deliver an even more enriching, engaging environment.

In conjunction with the Green House Project©, we’re constructing nine “small homes” for long-term care residents on our campus, opening in fall 2017, and renovating the Jewish Home to incorporate a similar model, with households on each floor, which will be completed in early 2019. All residents will have private bedroom suites with personal bathrooms.
