The Jewish Home will soon mark 40 years of providing senior care services in southern Connecticut. As that anniversary approaches, the staff unveiled a new name to better reflect the agency's  service offerings: Jewish Senior Services.

“As we approach our 40th anniversary, we recognize the need to better communicate the wide range of services we already offer to seniors and their families,” Andrew Banoff, president and CEO of Jewish Senior Services, said earlier this month. 

“The name Jewish Senior Services reflects that we are much more than a nursing home. Providing the best healthcare for seniors -- wherever and whenever they need our services -- remains our top priority.”

The new tagline, “excellence in our home and yours,” is meant to reinforce the commitment, compassion, and trust that have earned the staff a strong reputation as senior care experts in the community and the industry, according to the agency's Director of Marketing and Communications Robin Friedson. 

"The same level of exceptional care that has earned us the top five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and that inspired U.S. News & World Report to name The Jewish Home as one of 2013’s Best Nursing Homes will not change," Friedson said.

As part of its 40th anniversary celebration, Jewish Senior Services has partnered with The Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts in Westport as well as the Friends of Israel Scouts’ Tzofim Friendship Caravan to sponsor events in the community beginning in June.

Jewish Senior Services provides nursing, rehabilitation, home care, hospice and other support services in their two locations in Fairfield, and in peoples’ homes throughout Fairfield and New Haven Counties. 

“All of our programs are reflections of the changing needs of the community and what seniors have told us they want: more care in their homes and communities, with the same great care and service they have come to expect from The Jewish Home," Banoff said. 

More information is available on the new Jewish Senior Services website, www.jseniors.org.
