The Jewish Home of Rochester has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Nursing Homes 2020-21. The Jewish Home was ranked as High-Performing for both Long-Term Care and Short-Term Rehabilitation. Of the 617 nursing homes in New York State, only 8% received the High-Performing rating in both categories.

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 have renovated the Jewish Home Farash Tower to incorporate a similar model, with households on each floor. All residents have private bedroom suites with personal bathrooms.
