Let’s celebrate our accomplishments!
• In 2019, volunteers provided almost 1000 hours of face-to-face visits to 100 different patients.
• We currently have 46 active volunteers.
• Our volunteers are a diverse group, ranging in age from 18 to 84, with an average age of 57.
• 70% of volunteers are female; 30% are male.
• While all volunteers speak English, we also have a few volunteers who speak Spanish, German,
  Vietnamese, Mandarin, Hebrew/ Yiddish, American Sign Language and Twi.
• Several volunteers help out in the office, a few volunteer as a team with their pet dog, and the
  rest are out in the field visiting our patients.
• The JHC Hospice Team has also grown.  We currently have 14 nurses, 11 Home Health Aides, 4
  social workers, 3 chaplains, 2 massage therapists, and 2 music therapists.
• Our average census for 2019 was 88 patients per day.

Please welcome the thirteen new volunteers who
completed their volunteer training with us this past fall.
Most have already begun visiting patients, including our
cohort from the College of the Holy Cross.
Each fall, all first-year students from Holy Cross
participate in a year-long introductory seminar course.
Many of these courses are community-based learning
courses where students volunteer with Worcester agencies providing weekly
service or project-based work. One community-based learning course is “Death and Society.”
All students enrolled in this course participate all over the greater Worcester area in hospice
volunteer trainings like ours. We are fortunate that we welcomed six students to our Fall training
this past year. Students partake in the training during their fall semester as part of their “Death and
Society” course, and then are matched with patients during their spring semester. Several of these
volunteers continue to volunteer even after their course requirements are complete.

JHC Hospice is proud to partner with “We Honor Veterans”, a program of the National Hospice and
Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs
(VA). “We Honor Veterans” focuses on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful
acknowledgement of our patients’ service to our country. Through recognition of our veterans and
families unique needs, JHC Hospice will identify how to support and guide them towards a more
peaceful and dignified end of life experience.
As partners of “We Honor Veterans”, JHC Hospice will continuously provide our team with
education and training on veteran centric care needs and interventions. We will work collaboratively
with our local VA to connect our veterans and their families with support and resources within their
community. Veterans will be able to narrate their service experience through a specialized military
assessment completed by our team. Through this valuable information, veterans and their families
will have the opportunity to take part in our honorary pinning ceremonies, alongside the hospice
interdisciplinary team. During our ceremonies patients are presented with honorary items specific
to their branch of service. These ceremonies will solidify our veterans’ identity with their service,
give families a greater understanding of their experiences, and build strong, trusting connections
with our team. JHC Hospice is an official “We Honor Veterans” recruit and is proudly working
towards earning their stars as a level one partner.

JHC celebrated Sister Pat’s career and dedication to JHC and other causes on July 31, 2019. She
was celebrated by long-time friends and colleagues, and presented the Key to the City.
Jewish Healthcare benefited tremendously when Sister Pat joined the JHC Hospice team in 2012.
With her well-honed and seasoned skills, she provided spiritual care, outreach, and education
and helped to develop the next generation of hospice providers. Through her shining example
and practical guidance, she has helped to shape JHC Hospice into the highly regarded and
compassionate program that it is today. She celebrates 60 years as a Sister of Mercy and has
provided 50 years of nursing service. This is not simply a career. This is a life full of purpose,
meaning, and love. Who she is has helped us to become who we are. Her influence and legacy will
continue to shed light for a very, very long time to come.

 Rehab Success Story - Art Greenseid!
Art Greenseid joined us in September of 2018
after complications from a liver transplant.
His surgery was performed at UMASS Medical
Center, and after three weeks at another facility,
Art was brought to JHC for recuperation and
When Art arrived at JHC, he had muscle ataxia
and could not walk, sit or move himself in the
wheelchair. He was dependent in all areas and
needed maximum assistance with simple tasks
like eating. He needed to build up his muscle
strength and had a long road ahead of him.
After one-year and two months, and a hard
working journey of daily rehabilitation sessions,
Art was granted the green-light to go home (Nov. 8, 2019). He can now sit up, wheel
himself around, ride the bikes in the vigor room, and walk with a walker.
Art and his wife Bobbie, were thrilled with the care they received, and the friendliness of
all the staff at JHC. Art worked closely with Tom, Pat, Tammie and Wennie in the Rehab
Therapy department, who he praised for their dedicated care. They were also very pleased
with the entire rehab staff and the staff on the third and fourth floors at JHC, and said:
“They really care about you.”

BrightStar Care for eight years before he sold it. This is an agency similar to our own JHC
PrivateCare. He has earned a Certificate in Assisted Living to go along with a BS from Bucknell
and two MS degrees from BU. Our references came from Debbie Fins and Alan Stoll, both
knowing him from the work environment. He has great people skills, business sense, and
organization (from his engineering years). David has been very active in several advocacy
associations, and is known by many people. We are thrilled to add him to our team.

Did you know that JHC provides scholarships to our qualified and eligible employees?
  • We have a CNA Certification program for eligible staff who have a passion for working in direct
  patient care that is paid by JHC.
  • We also have a scholarship program for qualified health care staff who would like to continue
  their education. This enables our Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs) to bridge over to Licensed
  Practical Nurses (LPNs), and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) to become Registered Nurses (LN).
  • In addition, we also offer tuition assistance for staff that are not part of this program, but want
  to further their education.
             To donate to this wonderful cause, please contact the Development Dept.

We continue to look at providing new and fun activities
for our residents as well as look to continue to provide a
comfortable and welcoming environment. We recently
purchased ten new replacement chairs for the Namaste
room on the fifth floor along with new plush blankets and
fresh homey linens for our sensory programming. Since
the Namaste program focuses on later stage dementia
programming and how best to meet the unique activity
needs these residents have, comfortable recliners and
warm inviting blankets enhance that experience.
                                                                                                              Activity Staff Professionals Week
We started off our more traditional recreational
programming with some new activity options on the third
floor and fifth floors. The Club Room on 5th floor recently
added a volleyball game featuring nets that clip on the
tables and creatively use fly swatters for hitting a balloon
over to the other team. The third floor has a weekly
happy hour for socializing and added a giant crossword
puzzle game for a large group to finish together.
Each floor is offered regularly scheduled opportunities to
arrange flowers as a group and either take them back to
their rooms or use as dining room décor.
Finally, we are using quite a bit of technology to enhance
group programs through activity programming software,
the use of HDMI connectors to the televisions to take                                                                 Namaste Room

From the President, Barbara Salitsky
In June 2019, I took over as President of the Auxiliary of the
Jewish Healthcare Center. This is a new experience for me. After
almost 90 years of existence, the Auxiliary has had to make
changes. Years ago, we were very hands on with the patients
and staff but as times changed, so did the Auxiliary.
With the thought of extinction, I stepped up to take the reins
and revitalize the organization. My main goal is to entice a new
generation of women (and men) to join the Auxiliary and plan
activities and fundraisers that are both fun and informative.
Since June, we have had three very successful events; our
annual Donor Luncheon with a “make you own” ice cream
sundae bar, a movie night with a screening of Hava Nagila: The
Movie with wine and hors d’oeuvres, and in conjunction with
the Worcester JCC, an author event and signing with Randy
Susan Meyers, author of Waisted: A Novel.
We hope to see you at our luncheon card party on April 1,
2020, and our annual donor luncheon on September 30, 2020,
as well as the many more exciting events we are planning
including a “Movie Club”.

                        In Memory of Carole Sigel
                        It is with great sadness that we remember Carole Sigel. She held the office
                        of recording secretary for the Auxiliary for over ten years. She was also on
                        the Donor committee, and enjoyed checking in the guests at our annual
                        luncheon. She was a life member of the Jewish Healthcare Center, and the
                        Auxiliary (along with her husband George, who is also a current Associate
                        member). Her smiling face will be missed by the board and all who knew her.
                                                            ~Lois Singer, Auxiliary Past President

                                   Become a Member
 If you would like to become involved in planning events, meeting new people, and raising funds
               for the Jewish Healthcare Center, become a member of the Auxiliary.
                     Membership is $25 per year and Life Membership is $225
                   Associate Membership for men is a one-time payment of $72
  Not only do we care for elders in our community, but also those recuperating or rehabilitating
      from surgeries and procedures. We would love to have you join our community-based
  organization. Please contact Barbara Salitsky at if you are interested
                in joining, becoming an officer or just want some more information

2019 Donor Luncheon
We have had a very fun-filled year. The theme of our September 18th donor event was Happy
“Sweet” New Year, which was decorated with New Year’s Eve hats, streamers and leis. We had a
wonderful luncheon with an exceptional “make your own” Ice Cream Sundae bar and, of course,
dozens of fabulous raffles.
In December, we had a wine and appetizer movie night. The 50 Auxiliary members watched
“Hava Nagila: the Movie” as they snacked on popcorn. Because of the event’s great success,
we are planning on more movie events. Thank you all for participating.

  Save the Date: Next Donor Luncheon will be Wednesday, September 30, 2020

     •   What is a legacy gift? It is a gift of an asset after you pass away.
     •   Who should sign up? Everyone. This is not just for the wealthy or the seniors. There is no expectation
         of payment while you are living.
     •   Why wouldn’t I leave all of my estate to my children? Legacy gifts are usually only a percentage of
         your estate and demonstrate to your heirs your commitment to Jewish values.
     •   Does the gift have to be money or can other things be given? Legacy gifts can take many forms:
         stocks, bonds, real estate, retirement assets, cash, life insurance proceeds, etc.
     •   How much should I bequeath? There is no correct amount – it varies from person to person – and you
         don’t even have to give an amount.
     •   Can I change my gift later? Yes - if your circumstances change you can adjust the amount of your gift.
     •   What are the ways I can leave a legacy gift? There are many ways, including making a bequest in a will
         or trust, naming JHC as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or an IRA or pension fund, giving a gift
         of cash or assets, setting up a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust. Please consult your
         professional advisor to determine which method of giving is best for you.
     •   How do I sign up? The first step is to fill out a letter of intent on the following page and send it to JHC
         or the Jewish Federation of Central MA.
