Behind the Scenes at JGS

Monthly Birthday Party at JGS

We are excited that our employees continue to be recognized for their outstanding contributions. Holly Payne was named The February Abe Neigher Employee of the Month at the Leavitt Family Jewish Home. Holly received Kudos Recognition from multiple people who observed the outstanding job that she does every day. “Her kindness and compassion towards our residents is above and beyond,” remarked one nominee. A resident’s family member said, “She is so friendly and actually really enjoys her job. JGS is really lucky to have an employee like Holly!”

The Abe Neigher Employee of the Month is awarded to an employee at the Home who received KUDOS recognition and exemplifies the CARE values: Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Excellence. These values form the foundation of the JGS Lifecare Culture of Caring. Congratulations Holly for a recognition so well deserved!

The Goth Family Auditorium was filled with energy and enthusiasm as residents celebrated the February Birthdays of 16 residents at the Home and Sosin Center for Rehabilitation. It was wonderful to be able to gather together to celebrate! Entertainment was provided by Dave Brinnel who shared a repertoire of oldies by Sinatra, Elvis, Tony Bennet and others, combined with his classic style of storytelling and humor. Dave’s humor and oldies renditions together with the home-made cupcakes and ice cream were enjoyed by all!

On February 23rd the Home partnered again with Behavioral Health Network and Gandara Center to administer Flu and Covid Vaccinations/Boosters to the community and JGS staff. Over 30 people turned out and expressed gratitude for the convenience of being able to access the vaccinations at the Home.
