JULY 13, 2017 – Hundreds attended a ribbon-cutting celebration in honor of the newly renovated Chelsea Jewish Nursing Home (CJNH) on June 21. The flagship property of Chelsea Jewish Lifecare (CJL) recently completed a $16 million renovation, with kitchens on every floor, warm and spacious gathering spaces and an abundance of glass and natural light. The residence also features a new café, rehab gym, chapel and courtyard. It is a far cry from a traditional nursing home.
Founded in 1919 by Lena Goldberg, the original goal of CJNH was to create a welcoming home for neighboring elders. Now, nearly 100 years later, the concept has come full circle. “We came back to the home atmosphere that our founder, Mrs. Goldberg, originally had in mind when she remodeled a multi-family home in Chelsea to care for the elderly,” stated Adam Berman, President of Chelsea Jewish Lifecare.
