Art of Jewish Caregiving

The Art of Jewish Caregiving is a unique program designed to educate health care
professionals and caregivers about the diversity of Jewish culture, customs,
rituals and traditions. To truly enhance healing and well-being at a critical time in
a person’s life, a caregiver must touch a person’s spirit and soul. To do so requires respect, understanding and education. The Art of Jewish Caregiving assists
in caring for and promoting the complete quality of life for a Jewish individual.

Jewish Senior Life offers a one-day retreat for health care professionals.
 Recognizing, respecting and maintaining religious and cultural sensitivity in a health care facility is a challenge we all strive to meet. Spend a day with us broadening
your horizons and developing the understanding needed to enhance the spiritual and
 cultural needs of the Jewish individual in your care.
