Through Partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Ovation Communities is improving healthcare outcomes and quality of life for seniors.

We greatly value our partnership with the Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation as it 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. The Jewish Home is a state of the art, highest quality Care Center, and Dr. Kovach, through her work, and the work of her students, is able to advance nursing science through her research and publications. It is a partnership that we remain very committed to continuing.”
– Dr. Kim Litwack, the Interim Dean for the UWM College of Nursing

Dr. Kovach is a longtime friend and supporter of our organization. She is a former professor in the College of Nursing at UW-Milwaukee where her research primarily focused on alleviating the range of human suffering that comes in the context of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. As Director of Research, Dr. Kovach is currently conducting various research studies at Ovation Jewish Home, Ovation Chai Point and Ovation Sarah Chudnow, whose results will improve the quality of life, human dignity, and healthcare outcomes for our residents and older adult worldwide.
