  • 4. From the CEO’s Desk by David Fuks, Chief Executive Officer, Cedar Sinai Park The place of the nursing home to meet the needs of elders in our community is changing. This is a change for the better. The traditional use of the nursing home as a long-term destination should be considered only as a last resort. We want to help you or your loved ones to stay home for as long as possible... and we want to help those who need rehabilitation to be able to return home as quickly as possible. Cedar Sinai Park’s Capital Campaign to develop a new household-model care center and to renovate the Robison Jewish Health Center will help to give shape to a system of care built on Jewish values - one that also recognizes the changing needs of our community in the 21st century. This new array of services to be provided in these settings will take place in a broader context of service where home and community-based care will be available. Expanded care options in your own home. Cedar Sinai Park is in the business of helping people to succeed wherever they choose to live Certainly, as we age, we might need some help. That help could be a few hours of assistance in your own home to take care of small household tasks. For others, a higher level of support at home in order to manage medications or take care of other daily activities (such as bathing) might be needed. Perhaps, assistance with shopping, or getting to and from a doctor’s visit might 4 | FALL 2013 | GENERATION TO GENERATION be what makes the difference. Cedar Sinai Park is working to develop a variety of home service and home care options in collaboration with its Jewish agency partners to assist our community with aging in their own homes. A NEW care center to help you get back on your feet and back in your own home. We recognize, however, that for many of us a time will come when we need to enter the healthcare system for a short period to respond to a serious care need. Hip or knee surgery, for example, may require a follow-up stay in a traditional rehabilitation setting in order to help a person get back on their feet and back home. For others, more serious healthcare events might require more extensive transitional rehabilitative care. As a community, we must be prepared to provide an array of rehabilitative services that will guarantee access to the highest quality of care possible. Private rooms in the new care center AND in a renovated Robison Jewish Health Center. We are pleased that the days of companion rooms will soon be but a memory. As you can see in the chart on the next page, 36 beds in three households in the new care center will be available for rehabilitation services. Residents in these private rooms will enjoy access to

Residents will enjoy the improved amenities of these private rooms and of the Robison building’s renovated environment and easy access to the rehabilitation gym. New care offerings in residential or long term settings. We also recognize that there are some conditions that will still result in the need for residential or long-term care stay. The fourth household in the new care center will have 12 private rooms and will operate as an enhanced residential care setting for individuals whose healthcare needs have exceeded their ability to remain in their own home. Additionally, 15 private rooms will be renovated for residential care in the Robison Jewish Health Center. Thirty-six private rooms will be renovated at Robison for specialized long-term care stays. The household model has been shown to improve both quality of life and healthcare outcomes. Those in our community who need a helping hand at home... or are facing post-surgery challenges, progressive diseases or the end stages of life, deserve the opportunity to live with comfort, privacy and dignity in a care setting that reflects their cultural and spiritual values, in addition to receiving the highest-quality healthcare available. ‫5 | דור לדור‬
  • 6. Message From the President by Paul Frisch, President, Board of Trustees “A place To Call Home.” For those of us affiliated with Cedar Sinai Park, the most oftenasked question by friends and family in our community is “how are things at the ‘home’?” By this, of course, they’re lovingly referring to the “Robison Jewish Home” (now Robison Jewish Health Center). For over 80 years, Robison has been “home” to our loving bubbes and zaydes, our favorite aunts and uncles, and our attentive friends and neighbors. For generations, this traditional nursing facility has had a profound impact on so many families in our community. “Home” is a powerful word. It connotes warmth and safety.... and evokes feelings of connectedness and love. Robison Jewish Health Center will always be “home” thanks to the love from the dedicated employees who provide the residents with tenderness and care... from the volunteers who bring smiles to every face... and from the visiting preschoolers that enthusiastically give out hugs. organization Cedar Sinai Park). For more than a decade, CSP has had a “chair” at the “healthcare services table” - advocating for elders at the local, state and national levels. We have more access than ever before to life-saving medicines... and we’ll likely live longer than our parents and grandparents before us. As the many baby boomers age (approximately 8000 people a day are turning 65), we will have to be innovative in planning for our 70s, 80s and 90s. Cedar Sinai Park wants to help members of our community to remain in their own homes successfully for as long as they can. We have been working for more than a decade to develop healthcare services that will help people to thrive in their own homes as they age. At times, healthcare needs exceed the ability of elders to remain in their own home. For some people, short-term rehabilitative care after injury or illness will make an enormous difference in getting them back on their feet and returning As individuals, we never stop learn- to their community. We are proud ing. As time passes, we evolve. The that 65% of those that come to same is true of Robison (and parent us for transitional rehabilitative 6 | FALL 2013 | GENERATION TO GENERATION services are able to return home or to a lower level of care. For those whose healthcare needs cannot be managed in their own home, we recognize that our more traditional residential or long-term care services may be needed. Your support of the Capital Campaign will allow us to renovate the Robison Jewish Health Center and create 63 private rooms, plus build a new care center with 48 private rooms... ALL with private bathrooms and showers! Each of the four households in our state-ofthe-art care center offers communal social areas, including an open kitchen and a community living room for relaxing with friends. Whether you are in a house, an apartment, or even a private room in one of the Robison’s new households, the saying “Home is where the heart is” still applies. With our incredible staff and array of services, we’re confident you’ll feel right at home with us!
  • 7. Employees of the Quarter Cedar Sinai Park wants to do everything we can to help members of our community to remain in their homes successfully for as long as they can. And for those that need transitional or longterm care, we provide a place to call home. We are proud to honor Luis Palacios as Employee of the Quarter at Robison Jewish Health Center. As the congenial and hard-working Lead Server for both lunch and dinner, Luis creates a convivial dining atmosphere for our residents. He joined our staff four years ago after living in Mexico City. During his off hours, Luis enjoys cooking hearty meals for his three active boys. Sisterhood’s Fall Faire Please join us in recognizing Usiel Solis as Employee of the Quarter at Rose Schnitzer Manor. As an attentive Server in our dining room since 2010, Usiel enjoys going out of his way to please residents. Oregon’s lush green trees and ample rain remind him of his native country of Guatemala. A part-time student at Portland Community College, Usiel is thankful for all the support he receives from residents and staff of Cedar Sinai Park. Sisterhood charmers looking for the latest fall trends (left to right): Donna Jackson, Evelyn Hirsch, Selma Moss and Fran Stone. It may have been raining non-stop the weekend of Sept. 29th, but that didn’t prevent loyal Sisterhood members from gathering for the Sisterhood Fall Faire in Zidell Hall at Rose Schnitzer Manor. The event, co-chaired by Christi Goodman and Michelle Gradow, presented an opportunity for browsing the latest fall clothing and jewelry trends; noshing on tasty samples of local coffees, candy and food; and getting information on creating colorful fall floral bouquets and the latest hairstyling tips. Co-Chair Michelle Gradow showed some of the treasures that can be found at Consigning Woman - a designer consignment shop in trendy Lake Oswego. In addition to Consigning Woman, vendors included Chicos, Posh Lingerie, Ruby Jewel, Mother Peach Caramels, Starbucks, Whole Foods, Buddies Floral and Salon 13. ‫7 | דור לדור‬

A reason to celebrate! Cedar Sinai Park employees graduate from “english as a Second language” class. On Tuesday, Sept. 10th, eight proud graduates of CSP’s “English as a Second Language” class gathered with friends and family for a celebratory graduation ceremony in Zidell Hall. The graduation pamphlet summed up the graduates’ spirit: “We come from all over the world (and) we all learn from each other. We laugh and cry. We embrace our differences and discover our similarities.” In gratitude for the opportunity to deepen their experience with the English language, the beaming graduates shared stories with the audience... where they were born (the Ukraine, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cambodia, Guatemala and Mexico), and the difficulties and joys of their experiences. The last to speak, Benito Lopez (who teaches Spanish to the residents at Robison Jewish Health Center), showed the audience the Guatemalan flag, and captivated the room with a recording of his homeland’s national anthem. The class wishes to thank the CSP administration, employees Elizabeth Moore and Irit Mandelsberg, and resident Arnie Silver for their support; CSP’s Education Training Director Carolyn Caldwell for her loving dedication; and CSP’s Culinary Department for the delectable snacks!

She continued her religious intellectual studies in New York at the Rabbinical School at the Jewish Theology Seminary of America. Before moving to Portland, Rabbi Abby spent a year as a Chaplain Resident at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley, California. Her experience doing hospice work and serving in a hospital will be a great asset to fulfilling Cedar Sinai Park’s mission and dedication to the Fifth Commandment. ‫9 | דור לדור‬

  • 14. One Community Member’s Legacy Love. Honor. Respect. Harold Nadler was a beloved resident of Rose Schnitzer Manor for 10 years. He and his wife Rosalyn moved from New York City and joined our community in 1999. Prior to their arrival in Portland, Harold served as a New York public school administrator for 29 years. Known to his friends as Hal, Harold was a very active resident at Rose Schnitzer Manor, volunteering at the library and gift shop, as well as sitting on Cedar Sinai Park’s Board of Directors as a resident representative. His dear friend, Jack Straus, who has been a RSM resident for 11 years says, “What a great guy he was. Hal made a lot of friends, often acting as a tour guide to new residents and staying involved with many things.” Sadly, Hal’s wife and true love passed away. Though Hal was devastated, he was very appreciative of the constant support and companionship he received from RSM residents and staff after his wife’s death. Soon after, Hal arranged for a Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) through the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation (OJCF) for the benefit of Cedar Sinai Park and the Community Endowment Fund of the OJCF. This gesture of gratitude is Hal’s Legacy. In an interview in 2006, Hal exclaimed, “I was happy to arrange for a Charitable Gift Annuity. I received a nice tax deduction, too. There are many benefits to this kind of annuity.” Then, in the same spirit, Hal’s friend Jack followed suit, creating a Charitable Gift Annuity in 2008... recognizing the ease that this risk-free choice offers, while ultimately creating his own legacy. Jack explained, “I like the steady income and fact that the funds will be used later for the things the organization needs. I trust that Cedar Sinai Park will take care of how they use the money.” Hal ultimately moved back to New York City in 2009 to spend his final days with his daughter Judith and family. Judith called to say, “I wanted to let you know how very proud (my Dad) was to be supporting the Jewish community of Oregon and, especially, Rose Schnitzer Manor where he lived for so many years.” Cedar Sinai Park is blessed to have had Hal Nadler and Jack Straus as part of our community and to be a part of their enduring legacies. The strong partnership between OJCF and Cedar Sinai Park makes it very easy for interested donors to set up a Charitable Gift Annuity.

  • 15. A Gift That Keeps on Giving: Charitable Gift Annuities this agreement with an organization dear to YOUR hearT ensures stable income for life, then becomes your legacy. Here’s how it works The donor signs an agreement with the charitable organization of his/her choosing and makes an irrevocable gift of cash or securities. The organization invests the gift and makes fixed annuity payments to the donor for life. The annuity rate is based on the amount of the gift and the age of the donor. A portion of the annuity payment may include tax-free return of principal. Part of the payment is interest earned and is taxable as ordinary income. Upon the donor’s passing, the remaining value of the original gift (called “residuum”) becomes an endowment gift to support the Jewish community. Cedar Sinai Park partners with the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation (OJCF) on Charitable Gift Annuities. Anyone can arrange for a CGA with a minimum gift of $10,000 at the age of 65 or older. The foundation follows the investment guidelines and rates recommended by the American Council of Gift Annuities. OJCF takes on the financial responsibility for the annuity payments. If someone outlives their life expectancy or the market takes a downturn, OJCF will still make the required annuity payments. This safeguards the donor’s income stream from the CGA. “CGAs provide a sense of security for the donor as they know that a payment will be received every quarter. It also serves as a nice reminder of the good they are doing for their community,” says Julie Diamond, Executive Director of Oregon Jewish Community Foundation.

Dedication Day for Kehillah “A dream come true” for community families Kehillah, Cedar Sinai Park’s newly completed apartment building for developmentally disabled adults, opened its doors at a celebratory dedication event on Sept. 9th. Under the welcome shade of a large tent, residents and supporters in high spirits gathered to hear speakers, and explore this new home for independent living. “Ten years ago, independent living for our daughter, Erika, was just a dream. Now with the exciting opening of Kehillah, that dream has come true”, says Jerome Menashe, father to Erika Menashe, a new resident of Kehillah. A program of distinguished speakers recognized the importance of Kehillah and the impact it will have on many families in the community. Dan Saltzman, a Portland City Commissioner; Patrick Shea of the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development and Vince Chiotti from Oregon Housing and Community Services gave thoughtful remarks, underlining the unique partnership between Cedar Sinai Park and the public sector to serve adults with disabilities. Dr. Eugene Borkan, a member of the Kehillah Board, shared his own experiences raising a special-needs child and what Kehillah will mean to parents concerned about the well-being of their child when they are no longer able to provide care. Rabbi Abby Cohen, Director of Spiritual Life at Cedar Sinai Park and a parent 16 | FALL 2013 | GENERATION TO GENERATION to two developmentally disabled adults, led the crowd in the traditional blessing, as she affixed a mezuzah on the door of the building.... signaling its transformation from a house to a home. The dedication event was also an opportunity to recognize the many donors and partners that helped to make Kehillah possible. Cedar Sinai Park CEO David Fuks acknowledged the generous contributions of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, National Council of Jewish Women, Portland Development Commission, Wayne D. and Joan E. Kuni Foundation, and Jerry and Helen Stern Family. Special thanks were also given to RH Construction,

Kehillah will collaborate with a number of volunteer services, including Jewish Family and Child Service, as well as tenant-employed providers to offer residents much needed support and life skills training that will assist in their ability to live independently in the community. None were more honored at the dedication event than the new residents of Kehillah. Brimming with excitement and beaming with pride, they offered guided tours to the apartments. In addition to the 14 individual apartments, the building offers communal social areas, including an open kitchen and a community living room, as well as a conference room where residents can meet privately with support services or family. “Kehillah is a dream come true for our family,” says Ann Wilson, mother to resident Cole Takahashi. “The reality is even better than the dream.” Frank Hudson joins Cedar Sinai Park’s community as Kehillah Manager. Frank was born and raised in Chicago, IL.  After completing his stint in the United States Marines, Frank attended the University of Illinois.  In 1988, he moved to Portland to attend Lewis and Clark Law School. After getting his J.D. degree in 1992, Frank started working for the Portland City Attorneys Office. Then in 2005, he worked for two non-profits - Transition Projects Inc. and Central City Concern. Both non-profits focus on alleviating poverty and homelessness; they also provide counseling and other services to many people with physical and developmental disabilities. Frank learned about Kehillah through his volunteer work on elder law issues. When asked about what is the most exciting thing about his new role of Kehillah Manager, Frank explained, “I enjoy working with people with varied abilities because they are sincere, good natured, and do not dissemble.  I find it rewarding to watch these remarkable people attain higher levels of self-determination and independence than they previously thought possible.  In addition, it’s fantastic to work at Kehillah because our residents’ families are totally invested in making this endeavor a success.” 17
  • 18. Affordable Housing THE TRUTH IS FINDING QUALITY HOUSING WHEN WE’RE OLDER MAY BE DIFFICULT. It is important to plan ahead. The availability of affordable housing is limited, and the waiting lists for this housing are usually long. Should you feel that affordable housing would be an important resource to you (or to someone you know), it is wise to plan NOW to put your name(s) on the waiting lists for apartments where support will be available. For those in our community who may have this need, you should know that Cedar Sinai Park is now the general partner for four affordable housing buildings in downtown Portland (see box to the right). Specifically designated for people over the age of 62, or people with disabilities, these apartments are close to shopping, the Art Museum, Portland State University, and all of the many resources that make downtown a great place to live. Our four buildings include: Rose Schnitzer Tower 230 apartments 1430 SW 12th Ave. Portland, OR 97201 503.222.7467 The 1200 Building 97 apartments 1220 SW 12th Ave. Portland, OR 97205 503.222.7467 The Park Tower Apartments 162 apartments 731 SW Salmon St. Portland, OR 97205 503.227.3367 Lexington Apartments 54 apartments 1125 SW 12th Ave. Portland, OR 97205 503.227.3367 There are two advantages to consider when seeking affordable housing in one of our properties. First, is the remarkable value of a government rent subsidy to those who qualify. These subsidies require an individual to use only 1 /3 of their monthly income for rent... minus a utility allowance. For example, if your monthly income is $1,000 (and the electric bill is $40), your rent would be $333 minus a $40 allowance to pay for electricity. Second, Cedar Sinai Park is developing a health and social service program to assist elders and people with disabilities that live in our buildings, so that they might continue to age at home and live successfully in the community. To learn more about the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) guidelines, call Matthew Strickland at Rose Schnitzer Tower - 503.222.7467. If you (or someone you know) think you may need affordable housing in the future, we urge you to put your name(s) on the waiting list. Each of our four buildings has its own list, so if you’re interested in any of the buildings, we encourage you to apply to ALL. Just call Matthew Strickland at Rose Schnitzer Tower 503.222.7467 - for more information. 18 | FALL 2013 | GENERATION TO GENERATION
  • 19. The Development of Housing with Services By providing quality care services, we prevent or decrease need for Hospitalization. For over two years, Cedar Sinai Park has led in the development of a consortium of providers dedicated to the creation of a new model of health and social services “near the subsidized housing of low-income elders and people with disabilities.” Research has shown that lowincome elders living in subsidized housing tend to have higher needs for health care and social support than their “same-age peers living in their own homes.” Because of this, we are focusing on increasing care management and health services available to individuals in those settings. The goal is quite simple. By providing high-quality care and making it easier for people to have access to the services they need, we will prevent or decrease the need for hospitalization or nursing home care. Our planning process will continue into the 2014 calendar year... and we hope to begin providing services by April 2014. To create this consortium of services, Cedar Sinai Park is collaborating with the following providers: Cascadia Behavioral Health, Lifeworks Mental Health, Jewish Family Child Service, Outside In, the Asian Health and Service Center, Sinai Family Home Services, Home Forward, Care Oregon and Sisters of Providence Elderplace. A health and social service center is also being developed in the 1200 Building in downtown Portland, where some providers will collocate services for ease of access to the downtown low-income housing community. Future plans also under consideration by Cedar Sinai Park include further development of home and community-based care to help all members of our community remain in their own homes. ‫91 | דור לדור‬
