Jewish HomeLife Safety Pillars
Since the first days of the pandemic, Jewish HomeLife continually earns the trust of our residents, clients and families by operating all our residential communities and at-home care services with four guiding safety pillars, to the best of our ability, each day.
Ensure the safety of our residents and clients
Ensure the safety of our staff
Continue to educate and train our team members about infection control and COVID-19, based upon evolving virus developments
Continue our partnerships with all local, state and federal agencies
Care for a New Age
Jewish HomeLife was put to the test early in the pandemic, having one of the first assisted living communities in Georgia with confirmed cases. Through our aggressive PPE procurement efforts, widespread contact tracing, access to highly sensitive and accurate PCR testing with 24-hour results, and excellent staff training, we very quickly contained the virus and had minimal spread. We have led the way in infection control, and have earned our families’ trust.
