The Jewish Home in Fairfield has announced the establishment of a Holocaust Survivors Care Fund that will be used to ensure that every area survivor of the Holocaust in World War II has access to the best possible senior living care for the rest of their lives regardless of their ability to pay for these services.
“There are fewer and fewer survivors of the Holocaust, yet the sad reality of their experience must never be forgotten,” said Andrew Banoff, president and chief executive officer. “We are privileged to be a part of the survivors’ lives and The Jewish Home community will be enriched if they spend even a day with us. The Jewish Home was founded on the principle of caring for those in our community, and we must ensure that every single survivor of this great tragedy live the remainder of their lives with dignity and respect”
This fund will ensure that any survivor who has lived in either Fairfield or New Haven County for at least one year will have access to any service of The Jewish Home, whether that be care in their own home, in one of its buildings, at the adult day center or even consultative services and assessments. While most seniors are covered by Medicare or Medicaid, The Jewish Home wants to make certain that not a single survivor is denied access to care for financial reasons.
