In 2012, JGS will celebrate 100 years of caring for the elderly in our community. When JGS was first established, the founders made a promise to provide comprehensive and compassionate healthcare services - based upon Jewish traditions and values - to those facing the challenges of aging. Jewish Geriatric Services has established itself as a trusted, not-for-profit, healthcare resource for people of all faiths. Our full range of services includes skilled nursing and short-term rehabilitation care, assisted living, home healthcare, adult day health, community-based medical services, subsidized independent living and specialized Alzheimer's care.

Programs of Jewish Geriatric Services include: Julian J. Leavitt Family Jewish Nursing Home Spectrum Home Health and Hospice Care Ruth's House - An Assisted Living Residence Wernick Adult Day Health Care Center JGS Family Medical Care Genesis House - On the Harold Grinspoon Campus Rehabilitation Services All of these services come together to form a complete system of care, one that is built upon a solid foundation of quality services, dignity and respect. It is the very reason why the name Jewish Geriatric Services has become synonymous with excellence and why, time and time again, people turn to us for their eldercare and healthcare needs.

  • Nice layout of memory unit. Like the fact nursing home and rehab on same campus/different buildings. More complete care to be given on unit. Price slightly lower than Armbrook with more care offered.

  • Initial impression

    My mom has only been her a very short time, so my rating may not be totally fair. Cleanliness of the whole floor is good, but mom's unit smells like urine, and I had to ask to get her very dirty floor vacuumed. I don't feel I should have to ask this. Also, I oftentimes find clean( i hope) clothes laying around. Almost Everyone appears very friendly, but one aide was sorely lacking in approach and initiative... Maybe just a miserable person, in general? The Nurse is wonderful, and I think most of the aides seem genuine... But it's only been a short time. But so far, they appear "real". Value is ok, but ill reserve my true judgement on that for a bit later because care services are somewhat lacking in some areas. I've had to ask numerous times and leave notes as well, for a few things on mom's rx plan that were not being adhered to. This gets frustrating and one thing is/was quite impt. There are a few other care concerns that I have had to address, and hopefully, they will be attended to. Oh, and food is complained about by almost everyone. I'm not sure if it really is bad most of the time, or if it's just the residents' perceptions!! My mom seems to really enjoy all of the activities she decides to engage in. She loves the activity people, and they seem to try to get the residents involved. I guess they can only offer activities and urge people to partake of them. Overall I gave the facility a 3.5. But this is only based on a short time frame, so I'm not sure if it is accurate. It's the best I can do with what we have experienced up to this point. I think I need to give it more time before an accurate gauge of measurement is given.
