The Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation’s Greatest Needs Fund ensures Ovation Communities is able to sustain its mission of providing a safe, secure and beautiful Jewish home for Wisconsin’s elders. First established in 1986, the foundation continues to support basic care and services for Ovation’s residents. This includes providing care for everyone who needs it, regardless of their financial situation.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, expenses directly related to resident care have risen astronomically, equating approximately to an additional $200,000 per month. Increased costs are due to many operational changes and challenges. Some of these changes and challenges include providing personal protective equipment, regular testing, additional protocols, staffing adjustments, and increased technology needs.
“Now more than ever before, we have a responsibility to make sure our Jewish seniors are cared for with dignity and respect, and loving hands,” said Tanya Mazor-Posner, Vice President of Development for the Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation. “Because of the sustained generosity of our donors, we’re able to rise to the challenge and continue to provide the best care possible for those who need it most now, and in the future.”
On April 14 the Foundation will launch a special 36-hour online campaign to support the Greatest Needs Fund. Follow Ovation’s e-newsletter and social media channels for additional details.
