Description of Agency/Activities: Jewish Home and Care Center (JHCC) and Sarah Chudnow Community provide our Jewish community with those services that enable our seniors or infirm to be a part of a quality Jewish environment with comfort, independence and dignity. Jewish Home and Care Center provides services to people of all faiths needing short-term rehabilitation care and therapy. The Jewish Home and Care Center provides for those in need of long-term residential care and the Sarah Chudnow Community offers independent and assisted living.
Students Role at Agency: Students can take on various roles within the Jewish Home and Care Center. They have the opportunity to assist the activities staff in providing quality program experiences both at the facility and out in the community at large. Students can make friendly visits or help our independent residents communicate with their family and friends using Skype and other forms of social media. Other projects available for service learning students include, but are not limited to creating press releases for the marketing department and Foundation, accompanying residents on outings and participating shadowing opportunities in the therapy and social work departments and more. Students will also have the opportunity to work with diversified populations and culture. We will also be happy to tap into your skills and talents including music, art, theater, writing…you tell us!
Requirements at Agency: Jewish Home and Care Center requires all volunteers to fill out a JHCC volunteer application, background check forms, and have a flu shot (offered for free at all locations). They are required to go through a one and a half hour on-site orientation, and students are asked to perform at least two hours of service per week during the semester. Consistency and punctuality are very important to our residents.
