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.
