The Jewish Home of Rochester has been nationally recognized for excellence in care. For 2019-20, the organization was named a U.S. News Best Nursing Home, which fewer than 15 percent of nursing homes achieved. We were also recognized by Newsweek’s America’s Best Nursing Homes 2020. Only three percent of nursing homes nationwide received this distinction.
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.
We’ve constructed nine homes for long-term care residents on our campus called Green House Cottages and are renovating the Jewish Home Farash Tower 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. To learn more about our campus transformation, click here.
