Research & Innovation
We are honoring our past by researching our future by investigating issues with elder care that nobody else is. Our partnership with University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has allowed for the advancement of nursing science that improves the health and health outcomes for Jewish Home residents, but ultimately influences care of seniors both nationally and internationally.
Bringing younger generations together with our seniors forms mutually beneficial relationships that inspire growth, understanding, and fun. Our B’nai Mitzvah Projects and intergenerational boards help discover the treasures of older generations. By fostering a shared culture of values, beliefs, and goals, we aim to encourage productive and positive engagement.

Nurturing and cultivating relationships, we provide a communal space for generations to gather, share time, share meaningful moments, and discover the treasures of older generations. No matter what your skills or talents are or how much time you have to share, we will find a rewarding volunteer opportunity for you.
