Spirals: The Jewish Nursing Home Dilemma

By David Dunkelman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1993

Jewish nursing homes are in the throes of a series of death spirals: government cutbacks of Medicaid funding, outmoded buildings that thwart the provision of quality care, location in declining neighborhoods, and a lack of close ties with the families of their residents and with the federation. These spirals interact to threaten the existence of Jewish Homes.
