About Elan Skilled Nursing and Rehab
Elan Skilled Nursing and Rehab, A Jewish Senior Life Community, was founded in 1916. Formerly known as the Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania, our warm and inviting senior community has earned a reputation as the region’s premier provider of short-term rehabilitation, long-term skilled nursing care, and memory care. The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Alzheimer’s Unit has been recognized for its exceptional care of people with memory impairment conditions.
After several years of planning that involved the boards of our affiliates, our staff, and many interested community volunteers, we are implementing a strategy that will serve us well as we embark on our next one-hundred-year journey.
As the environment of nursing facilities has changed, we now serve many patients between their discharge from the hospital and their return to home or personal care. This creates the need for a separate and distinct care area tailored to the needs of patients who have been released from the hospital following a serious illness, injury, or surgery, but who need more time to recover before safely returning home.
The leadership and innovation of Jewish Senior Life in its operations of Elan Skilled Nursing and Rehab, Elan Gardens Senior Living, and Webster Towers offers sustainability, ensuring that future generations continue to benefit from dignified and compassionate service to our elders.
Every Big Change in the World Starts With One Person
In 1916, Mrs. Selma Stark founded the beginnings of our current operations. Through her fundraising efforts, she afforded the purchase of one home to care for orphaned children, the elderly, and the infirm. Thanks to Mrs. Stark, our organization provides quality care, services, and housing for 260 seniors.
