Building For The Future

Jewish Senior Life Campus Plan

Redefining Home. Revolutionizing Care.

For nearly a century, the Jewish Home of Rochester, and today Jewish Senior Life, has been committed to meeting the unique needs of the cherished elders we serve. With the help of our generous donors, we're taking person-centered care to the next level by updating our campus to provide even more choice, autonomy and control for all residents across our various services to deliver an even more enriching, engaging environment.

In partnership with The Green House® Project, we are constructing nine "small homes" for long-term care residents on our campus, opening in Fall 2017. The expansion also includes renovating the Jewish Home to incorporate a similar model, with small households on each floor, which will be completed in early 2019. This will result in all residents having their own private bedroom suites with personal bathrooms. We're also expanding our Transitional Care program (short-term rehabilitation) to become one of the largest post-acute care providers in Monroe County.

Residents will be able to enjoy their meals whenever and however they choose, whether it's privately or together like a family.

All resident bedrooms and bathrooms will be private—both in the new buildings as well as in the renovated Jewish Home.

The grounds throughout the campus will feature walking trails, a gazebo, and a pond with a viewing deck.

Help Make This Possible

Help us redefine what home means, and revolutionize the care available to elders of all faiths and ethnicities throughout the Rochester community.

Keep Tabs On Our Progress

While our campus will physically transform, ultimately our expansion is about people. Our residents. Their families. Our staff. We will provide homes that meet each resident's needs better than ever before. Check here for regular updates on our expansion.
