The Clare and Jerry Rotenberg Center of Excellence for Palliative Care
“Jerry and I share an unwavering belief that every person should be treated with dignity and compassion–especially during the later stages of life. This influenced our decision to make our gift to Jewish Senior Life in support of their work related to Palliative Care.” Foundation donor, Clare Rotenberg
At the Jewish Home, our physicians, nurses, social workers and chaplains are specialists in palliative care and use a multi-disciplinary team approach to address the whole person—their physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs, as well as those of the family—and develop a care approach suited to them.
Palliative care focuses on improving the overall quality of life of an individual facing serious illness. It may be delivered at any time during an illness while curative measures are being taken. That is, the patient may not necessarily be terminally ill. Palliative care relieves symptoms such as pain, shortness of breath, nausea, fatigue, loss of appetite, etc., so that the patient may gain the strength to carry on with daily life. The interdisciplinary team will work in partnership with outside physicians and nursing caregivers to provide consultation and support.
