The Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania has been renamed Elan Skilled Nursing and Rehab, A Jewish Senior Life Community. Over the next several months, the facility and its associate organizations will transition to a new naming structure to more accurately represent the relationship of the three organizations.
“The name will change, but what remains is our mission to provide high-quality, dignified and compassionate care and services to all residents as well as enrich the experiences of older adults through a broad range of housing and support services that reflect their individual spiritual, social and cultural values,” said Administrator Mary Rose Applegate. “It is the dawn of a new era, but with the same quality and range of services.”
The services provided by these entities throughout the northeast region will be under the leadership of Jewish Senior Life of Eastern Pennsylvania.
- The Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania will now be referred to as Elan Skilled Nursing and Rehab, A Jewish Senior Life Community.
- Elan Gardens, will now be Elan Gardens Senior Living, A Jewish Senior Life Community.
- Webster Towers will now be called Webster Towers Independent Living.
“Our Board of Directors has implemented strategies to more closely align us with our sister organizations, Elan Gardens and Webster Towers,” said Board President Jim Alperin. “Our intent is to create an organizational structure which more accurately represents the three entities as a provider of a full continuum of senior care. We look forward to investing further to enhance our current service repertoire that includes independent living, personal care, transitional care, memory-impaired services, and skilled nursing/ long-term care.”
More than 100 years ago, the organization began as an orphanage – The Jewish Home for the Friendless. Today, the multi-site senior living provider offers a full continuum of independent living, personal care, transitional care, memory-impaired services, and long-term care to seniors from all faiths and from communities throughout Eastern Pennsylvania.
Under the new structure, senior citizens from all faith communities will continue to benefit from the leadership and innovation that Jewish Senior Life, Elan Skilled Nursing, Elan Gardens and Webster Towers provides and continuing the long-standing reputation as both a provider and employer of choice in northeast Pennsylvania.
Elan Skilled Nursing and Rehab, A Jewish Senior Life Community – formerly the Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania – provides high-quality care, dignified and compassionate services to all residents in need of long term care, as well as to provide enriching experiences to older adults through a broad range of housing and support services that reflect the spiritual, social, and cultural values of their tradition. We are a faith based nonprofit organization which is governed by a volunteer board of directors.
