Religious Programming for Nursing Home Residents

By Rachel Filinson

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1995

After the only Jewish nursing home in Rhode Island closed in 1993, a program developed under the auspices of the Jewish Family Service to create a Jewish nursing home without walls for the Jewish residents of secular institutions. An external evaluation of this program found that there is considerable room for broadening religious involvement in the nursing home, although residents' demand for religious programming may be superseded by their interest in stimulation and interaction.
