Jewish Tradition Home Care is dedicated to providing quality care to the Jewish Community. Our caregiver staff is trained to be sensitive to traditional Jewish values, understanding of holidays and customs, Kosher laws, and traditional cooking and foods.
Well-trained home health aides assist with daily chores and personal care making the difference between feeling alone and helpless or feeling comfortable and secure in familiar surroundings. Our clients range from the frail elderly and Holocaust survivors to recently discharged hospital patients, or to those who simply need social stimulation to avoid depression and ensure psychological well-being.
Neglecting oneself is often the result when meeting the demands of caring for a loved one. We extend support and respite to a caregiver, usually a spouse, to relieve them in order to maintain their health and ability to continue.
Jewish Tradition Home Care provides help in the home, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities or in the hospital. Our staff responds to a multitude of needs, blending expertise and skill with genuine compassion and understanding. Our primary goal is to enhance the quality of life for our clients, and by doing so give peace of mind to their families.
Members of our in-office staff speak Yiddish, Hebrew, Russian, Spanish and German.
Jewish Tradition Home Care is a licensed agency, not a nurse registry. Our aides and certified nursing assistants, and they are "hired," not "contracted" employees. All of our aides are insured with worker's compensation, so that our clients/families will not be liable for accidents that may occur on the job. Furthermore, our Director of Nursing, together with the Plan of Treatment by the client's physician, supervises all caregivers to assure that care is appropriate.
All of our Home Health Aides are bonded and insured. Jewish Tradition Home Care is extremely selective in the hiring process. Level 2 fingerprint criminal background screening is conducted through the Federal Bureau of Investigation, (F.B.I.) the Office of the Inspector General, (O.I.G.) as well as the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. (F.D.L.E.) We also obtain a motor vehicle driving record on each employee to ensure a safe driving record. We require complete and accurate verification of these screens prior to completing the employment process.
In addition to rigorous background screening, our employees are subject to annual competency education and training by our Director of Nursing. This program ensures that all employees are re-trained annually on our policies and procedures, are updated on any changes in practice, and are held accountable for their professionalism and pride in the services they provide. This annual training allows the Director of Nursing to also refresh our employee's skills regarding safety of care, infection control, sensitivity to Jewish customs and our emergency preparedness plans so we are all on the same page. We also hold specialized mandatory inservices throughout the year on the major Jewish holidays with our Rabbinical adviser (Rabbi Gold) as a guest speaker. He speaks with the aides and educates them on the customs surrounding those holidays.
At Jewish Tradition Home Care, we take pride in matching the unique qualities of our caregivers to the individual client's requirements. Our experienced and specially trained Staffing Coordinator assigns an appropriate Home Health Aide with the necessary skills, suitable experience, and personality to best meet our client's particular needs.
