Cedar Village is the region’s only not-for-profit continuing care retirement community that honors Jewish values and traditions. Our residents include people with significant resources and others without funds or families to rely on. We are home to Holocaust survivors, immigrants who grew up in times and places where it wasn’t safe to worship openly, and Cincinnati natives who don’t always have the means to age with dignity on their own.
Cedar Village offers a safe haven to those who cannot care for themselves. Even when residents run out of resources, they are never turned away from their homes at Cedar Village. Many of our long term nursing care patients require more help than their insurance plans cover. And even with Medicaid waivers, the cost of food, housing and assistance with the tasks of everyday living often cost more than subsidies cover. As insurance reimbursement rates continue to drop, our mission calls for us to continue delivering skilled care and rehabilitation services to some patients at a financial loss to Cedar Village.
The Shalom Center for the Prevention of Elder Abuse is operated out of Cedar Village. It is the only shelter for victims of elder abuse in the tri-state area and one of only 12 in the nation. While the location where at risk seniors are housed is kept confidential, the team at Cedar Village manages and funds every aspect of the counseling and care delivered. People who are 65 and better and suffering from physical abuse, financial abuse or neglect are eligible to receive services for up to 120 days at no cost to themselves.
Since 1997, we have carried on the tradition of our two predecessor organizations, Glen Manor and the Orthodox Jewish Home. The Cedar Village Foundation relies on the generosity of friends in the community to support our mission of enhancing the quality of life for those entrusted to our care.
Donations and volunteers enrich the lives of our residents every day through enhancing care and services and providing extra touches to make life special. For example, our Harkavy Fund provides wonderful programs, classes and entertainment for all of our residents and their families. Special events throughout the year such as the annual Cedar Village Golf Classic offer more ways to have fun and build social connections while being involved as a donor.
