As the first step to admission, we encourage applicants and their families to tour the campuses of the Jewish Home. Tours are often attended by a resident volunteer, who can provide a valuable perspective on daily life at the Home. After your tour, you will be invited to visit our Admissions Office, where you will receive an Application Packet, consisting of a Personal Information Form and a Physician’s Report. Allow approximately 90 minutes for the Tour.
Choosing a new home is one of the most important decisions we make, and the right choice goes a long way toward determining the quality of life we enjoy for years to come.
Whether you are considering the Jewish Home for yourself, a friend or loved one, we welcome your interest. Our friendly Admissions staff is prepared to provide you with a personal tour of the Home and authoritative answers to all your questions.
We encourage you to meet and speak with as many people as possible — staff, volunteers, and residents — throughout the application process, and welcome any question or concern whatsoever that you may have about residence at the Jewish Home.
Admission to the Jewish Home
The Jewish Home has been called "the best long-term residential care facility in Southern California."
Once your Personal Information Form and Physician’s Report have been received by the Home, you will be invited to an Interview and Assessment of your needs. This appointment will allow you to meet with a Jewish Home Nurse, and Admissions Financial Coordinator. (Please note: income levels do not determine admission to the Jewish Home). Allow two hours for this appointment. Please note, completion of tour and form does not guarantee admission to the Home.
Once you have met admissions criteria, you may select your room, based on availability. Because appropriate residences are not always immediately available, the Admissions Team meets regularly to review each applicant’s priority of need. Upon admission, the applicant and family will sign admissions documents, meet their social worker, and view their residence. This appointment generally requires two hours.
The Jewish Home is non-sectarian and welcomes seniors of all faiths, ethnicities, and cultures.
