About the project
The Rochlin Home for the Aged is a comprehensive facility designed to meet the medical, social and welfare needs of 120 Jerusalem seniors.The four-wing home includes a facility for the independent elderly, a nursing program, and two wings built by the Jeursalem Foundation: the Klagsbrun Wing for the Physically Frail (originally called the Wing for the Bedridden), which includes living quarters for approximately 30 frail elderly who require complete assistance, was built in 1987 and renovated in 2005. The facility includes a reception area, offices, main dining room, lounge and residential rooms that open onto an internal courtyard. Daily activities include exercise, holiday celebrations, and a wide range of social and enrichment programs. The Marjorie & Archie Sherman Day Care Center for the Elderly, which provides activities for 50-100 elderly each week who live in their homes and are brought to and from the center, was completed in 1988. The center provides meals, individual care and social and physical activities through unique programs, including a nutrition program, gardening therapy, supervised walking groups and an intergenerational program that brings together the elderly with junior high school students from the neighborhood.
