Want to find out more about what's going on at Jewish Care. From our Careline to our Annual Review, there's a host of publications to help fill in the gaps.
Who are you helping?
When you leave a legacy to Jewish Care and you'll be remembering the 7,000 people we help and care for each week, like...
Hettie, who came to live at Vi & John Rubens House ten years ago after falling at home and fracturing her spine.
She was so ill that she was unable to walk and confined to a wheelchair, but the staff at the home encouraged her to walk again and she had the determination to do it.
Ten years on, she is still walking, enjoying life and taking part in the home’s many different activities. She believes that the home has enabled her to “live a healthy, fulfilled and fruitful life” thanks to the wonderful staff and volunteers.
Miriam, who is 95 and living with dementia.
Miriam is just one of 300 people who use our centres for people living with dementia each week. She has been a member of the Sam Beckman dementia day centre for 4 years, which she visits twice a week, whilst her daughter who is her carer benefits from some respite.
Ballroom dancing, music, reminiscence, and celebrating the Jewish festivals are just some of the activities Miriam enjoys at the Centre.
William, who lives next door to his wife in one of our Care Homes
When William’s beloved wife, Annie, developed dementia, she moved into Lady Sarah Cohen House so that she could receive
the expert care and support she needed within a warm, Jewish environment.
Two years ago, William moved into Rosetrees, the care home just next door, where he too has been able to live in comfort and with dignity, continuing to enjoy his great passion for music.
Bette, who has lived in Hackney her whole life
Bette is one of hundreds of older people in the community who receive care and support from Jewish Care in her home. Twice a week, Bette’s dedicated carer helps her with personal care, shopping and any other jobs which are difficult for her to carry out due to her mobility problems.
Describing the difference this service has made, Bette says: “Life wouldn’t be the same without Jewish Care. It’s not just the care, having someone to talk to makes me feel I’m still part of the world.”
