The Ira W. De Camp Foundation, a leading proponent of workforce development is investing in the local eldercare community with a $225,000 grant to The New Jewish Home.  

Over the next three years, funding from Ira W. De Camp Foundation will help The New Jewish Home comprehensively re-train our entire staff in the Person-Directed Care of the Green House Model. The training will empower healthcare givers to work in interdisciplinary, self-managed teams so they can create true ‘homes’ for nursing home residents, while finding more fulfillment in the important work they do.

Over the next several years, as The New Jewish Home prepares for the opening of its new nursing home—The Living Center of Manhattan—on the Upper West Side, we will train over 500 nurses, social workers, and other clinicians in the Green House Core Training. By targeting and addressing the deficiencies of a traditional nursing home, The New Jewish Home will enhance how elders age in its facilities and how staff provide care.
