In-Ovation Milestone

There is an acute shortage of caregivers in Wisconsin nursing homes, a 19% hiring deficit!

To help address this crisis, Ovation Communities was selected as a pilot site to launch a cutting-edge new strategy; a professional development curriculum to train tomorrow’s caregivers. The Geriatric Career Development (GCD) successfully completed the first full year of this innovative program.

GCD is addressing this issue AND concurrently helping underserved Milwaukee students complete high school, attend college and secure job opportunities.

We are proud to provide this unique program to MPS students from North Division High School, James Madison Academic Campus and Washington High School.

Our In-Ovation 2019 Annual Event is the perfect opportunity to show your support for the Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation, by paying tribute to Dr. Mateo, Bill Kerns and to celebrate the first year of our GCD Program.
