Kavod Connections

By the time you receive this, I will have been at Ovation Communities for ten months. While that isn’t much time at all, it feels like I have been a part of this wonderful community for much longer thanks to all of you who have been so welcoming and supportive.

While this past year has been marked by new beginnings and a few changes, what I find most remarkable are the cherished traditions that remain unchanged. Among our shared values, two stand out to me as particularly important at Ovation Communities: faith and courage. This last year, we’ve relied heavily on both to accomplish our goals and fulfill our fundamental mission.

As part of that vision, we are investing in many facility enhancements. This September, Kavod Terrace, our new memory care unit, opened. The Oasis Kosher Café, one of the only kosher restaurants in the city of Milwaukee, has reopened to the public and a new head chef is settling in. Currently, we are in the planning stages to add an indoor playground and movie theater to give visitors and residents spaces that allow for intergenerational interaction in neighborhood-like settings. And we’ve just implemented a state-of-the-art nurse call system that will improve response times, increase nursing efficiencies and enhance communication. Please be sure to watch Kavod Connections and check our website often for more details about these and other exciting new programs.

As we embrace a bold vision for the future, we are guided by our rich past and inspired by our remarkable present. I am excited to be on this journey with all of you and want to thank our board members, volunteers, staff, residents and their families for the joy and friendship you bring to me and everyone at Ovation Communities.

Shana Tova,

Mike Silverman
President, Ovation Communities
