Mission Statement

Our mission is to fulfill the Mitzvah of "Mipnei Seivah Takem - You shall rise and show respect to the aged"

Description

Shalom. Welcome. The Rose Blumkin Jewish Home has been regarded as a premier long-term facility in Omaha for decades. We were just awarded the rare and coveted Five Star Rating from both the State of Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services and Medicare.gov. These ratings, which are well above the Sate and National average, are truly a testament to the quality of care we provide to our Residents. We continually strive to meet the high expectation of our clients by providing exceptional services and programs. We take tremendous pride in our well-trained, experienced Care Teams and professional staff. Our reputation for quality is built on the strength of our nursing department. While we welcome Residents of diverse backgrounds and faiths, the Blumkin Home is a uniquely Jewish setting. Emphasis is placed on Jewish community. The Home follows Kosher dietary standards, certified by the Va'ad HaKashrut of Omaha. All meals are prepared and served in accordance with Jewish dietary laws. Daily activities and special events keep Residents mentally and physically stimulated. Whether you're at the Home for a short or long stay, rest assured there will be plenty to keep you busy.
