Changes in the demographics of aging, the nature of the Jewish community, and governmental involvement will dramatically alter the Jewish nursing home of the future.

Building new homes that follow the movement of the Jewish community to the suburbs and adapting facilities to meet the heightened expectations of future generations of the elderly will be essential.
