Cedar Village Retirement Community is commited to care. As a faith-based organization, our commitment to the community and to our elders reaches far beyond our walls. The Shalom Center will provide shelter for eligible seniors, aged 65 and over, within the walls of the existing long-term facility at Cedar Village. It will offer a safe harbor for older adults who are victims of abuse, including a full range of health care and supportive services and a coordinated system of care.
Individuals will be referred to the Shalom Center by local agencies, hospitals and other organizations. Appropriate individuals will be accepted for admission for an emergency stay of 90 to 120 days. The care team will begin working upon admission to plan for a safe discharge to the least restrictive alternative. Necessary services — medical, psychological, spiritual and legal — will be provided throughout the stay. Individuals will be encouraged to take advantage of all of Cedar Village’s services and programs.
The Cedar Village nursing, medical, social services and pastoral care team, as well as members of the management team. We will be working with community agencies, law enforcement, hospitals and more to build the collaborative network we will need to educate our community, gain and manage referrals and make this program effective.
