Shalom! and hoping this latest issue of KAVOD finds you and your family well!

This past year has presented additional challenges to Ovation Communities as the pandemic lingers on.  But, it has also afforded us an opportunity to continue innovating and planning for our future, while providing outstanding care and services for our residents, today.  First, please know that the Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation remains strong and capable of helping our community’s elders.  Please take a moment to review the Foundation’s brief Annual Report found by turning a few more pages.

During this past year we have attracted local students and young professionals though our newly created Teen Ovation and NextGen Ovation initiatives, engaging them to virtually visit our residents and developing future leaders for our communities.

In addition, we have innovated virtually by:

  • expanding outreach through our Adult Day Programs, and by working with area agencies and synagogues. This ensures isolated older adults needs be met
  • coordinating Israeli visits hosted by David Bitan, offering live tours of significant cultural sights accompanied by history lessons
  • continued assurance for residents and families to gather virtually through FaceTime, Skype and other resources.

We are also so grateful for your support of our employees. Monthly luncheons sponsored by Hand-In-Hand are a needed and much appreciated respite for our very hard working and dedicated staff. Your donations to our Employee Appreciation Fund ensure that each employee receives a gift this holiday season.

Thank you for your continued support of our vision to Add Life to Lives, L’dor L’dor, From Generation to Generation.
