Jewish Home of Rochester
“The concept of living as if you were in your own home is very, very exciting.”
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the construction project happening on the campus?
In partnership with the Green House Project, we are transforming our campus through the building of nine small homes, designed to foster the same feeling and experience you get from living in a real home, with an open kitchen, a hearth, a single dining room table, and lots of natural light. Each resident will have their own private suite with personal bathroom. This innovative model will transform the way we provide care and enhance the living environment for our residents. We are also updating the grounds, including a new gazebo and viewing pond. Click here to learn more about our campus transformation.
Do I have to be Jewish to live at the Jewish Home or receive transitional care rehabilitation there?
We are a non-profit, long-term care home open to people of all faiths and ethnic groups, proudly founded by members of the Jewish community. We provide an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere of warmth, dignity and respect based on Jewish values. We have a board-certified chaplain on staff and regularly scheduled Jewish and Christian worship services take place on site.
What technology amenities are available?
Every room is equipped with a flat-screen TV and free satellite TV. Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) is available throughout our campus and computers are available for resident use. Residents may use their cell phones, and telephones are available in every resident’s room for a small weekly charge.
What are the visiting hours?
Suggested visiting hours are 10:00 am to 10:00 pm every day. We recommend guests time their visit around meals and scheduled therapy times, which are posted in each resident’s room. Children and pets are encouraged to visit. (Note: New York State requires proof of immunization prior to a pet’s first visit.) There are many lovely common areas inside and outside the building to accommodate visitors.
