Do I have to be Jewish to live on campus or receive transitional care rehabilitation there?
No. We are a non-profit care community 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 is the construction project on the campus?
In partnership with the Green House Project, we are transforming the way we offer long-term care through the building of nine small homes. These homes are 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 bedroom suites with personal bathrooms. 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. Learn more about this exciting initiative by clicking here.
I have heard you are a CCRC? What does that mean?
Jewish Senior Life is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). This means that we offer a full spectrum of accommodations from independent living, assisted living, assisted living with memory care, to long term/skilled nursing care–all on one campus. If the level of care needed changes for you or your loved one, we can support you right here.
I live out of town. How can I schedule a tour when I am in town?

Our admissions team is available for tours and phone calls Monday through Friday, from 8 am to 4:30 pm. Need a tour outside of these times?
