My mom has been in memory care since February. What a wonderful staff. I could not be happier with her care.

“Menorah Life is the best thing that has happened for my aunt. My son and I and my aunt feel like extended family. Your managers, nurses, cnas and all the people I have met are amazing and caring individuals. Your Doctor and PA have also been incredible. Your Social Worker has done an amazing job bringing another resident, and my Aunt together. They have become great friends. My first visits to see my aunt I was able to convince her to go outside. I was there in June and to my pleasant surprise she went for a drive with me and I took her for breakfast and shopping. She thought we had driven 100 miles to get to breakfast! I just want to say Thank-you to Menorah Life and the 3rd floor staff as she is doing better emotionally now than she has in the last several years. Thank you for being the amazing facility you are and May God Bless You and Keep You all.”

{"This note of gratitude is long overdue. I don't think I can fully express how appreciative I am for your kindness and care in dealing with my many inquiries and requests. The entire family was thrilled to know he would be safe and cared for at Menorah Manor in a setting that felt more like his home than a hospital environment."{

{"There are so few SNF’s and rehabs that I am willing to put our name behind right now and I am so grateful that I had Menorah Life as an option to provide to them."{

{It gives me great pleasure to brighten someone's day. Watching our residents come down for a gift, a cup of coffee, and some conversation is wonderful. I see how much our residents enjoy the atmosphere of the gift shop.{
{There’s no way to thank you all (and other volunteers) for all the work and loving care you gave Dad. He improved so much under your attention… He speaks of you very warmly. I praise Menorah Life every chance I get and will continue to urge anyone to consider your services.{
{Menorah Life means that not only can our Jewish seniors have the best care available, but my wife and I, and our friends, can be confident that the same high level of care will be there when we need it.{
