Celebrate National Nursing Home Week at Chelsea Jewish Lifecare

National Nursing Home Week 2015: May 10 – May 16
National Nursing Home Week is a way for today’s care communities to proactively communicate that skilled care centers are changing their focus and providing residents with a better quality of life. The Chelsea Jewish Lifecare is a perfect example. As the first urban model Green House® skilled nursing residence in the country, the Leonard Florence Center for Living sets the stage for a model of care far removed from traditional nursing homes. And the Chelsea Jewish Nursing Home will soon be undergoing a dramatic renovation. What will make a huge difference: kitchens on every floor; bright, cheerful gathering spaces such as cafes, spas and patios; natural light and an abundance of glass. At Aviv Skilled Nursing, the therapeutic gardens are spectacular this time of year. KIDSPOT is another popular offering; residents can enjoy young visitors in an environment created especially for children.
The National Nursing Home Week was developed to help foster a positive attitude toward care in long-term and post-acute care centers. The CJF will be joining in the festivities with ice cream sundae parties, giant sheet cakes, popcorn stations, raffles and musical concerts.
Join us in honoring National Nursing Home Week. Certainly, we have come a long way in providing long-term care. Let’s celebrate this milestone as we look forward to the future.
