The New Jewish Home is a comprehensive health care system for older adults.

We’ve been helping older New Yorkers for 170 years. Providing dignified care that meets the evolving needs of people as they age, we serve those who need just a little extra help managing chronic conditions at home to the frailest older adults.

The New Jewish Home is committed to empowering older adults to enhance purpose and well-being through a portfolio of innovative health care services.

Our Team

The staff of The New Jewish Home is the heart and soul of the work that we do.

From the compassionate caregivers, therapists, doctors and nurses on each campus to the seasoned administrative teams that help us all work better together, we offer an unbeatable support system for older New Yorkers who rely on us — in their homes and on our campuses — for a tremendous range of services.

If you are looking for a great career where you positively impact the lives of older adults each and every day, come join us.

Our Locations

There’s no place like The New Jewish Home for New Yorkers from across the five boroughs and the surrounding counties to find the great care they need.

We have campuses in Manhattan and Westchester County: Each has a skilled and compassionate staff, providing skilled nursing, specialized rehab programs and a person-directed care approach to serving older adults with dementia. In Manhattan we offer extensive Adult Day Programs and in Westchester, we provide older adults the opportunity to receive person-directed care in a homelike environment through our Small Houses.

In the Bronx, we have a network of apartments for older adults, where you can live independently, while receiving support you can’t get while living on your own, plus a community of friends and peers right in your building. We have a Medicaid Assisted Living Program, affordable 202 housing, and middle-income independent housing. The New Jewish Home also operates state-of-the-art Adult Day Programs in the Bronx.

Our Services

Our care options change as your needs change, though our excellence and expertise remain constant. Let’s discuss how we can support you, whether you are looking for:

Our History

We were founded in 1848 by Hannah Leo, first as a facility for New York’s Jewish population, and now serving New Yorkers of all faiths and backgrounds. We have a proud history: we were the first facility of our kind in the United States to have a full-time professional social worker, the first to have a full-time in-house doctor, and the first to have a teaching system to train professionals in caring for older adults.
