We honor Jewish traditions.
Because Midwest CareCenter is experienced and able to provide care in the context of Jewish values, customs and traditions, our Jewish patients and their families find a special measure of comfort and support.
Your care, like the care we offer to our patients of all faiths, is focused on you and your family. Your Midwest CareCenter team will include a physician, nurse, certified nurse’s aide, grief counselor, social worker and rabbi. Jewish volunteers can be provided upon request.
To ensure that you are surrounded by individuals who know about your goals, medical needs and spiritual preferences, we will work alongside your primary care physician—a key member of your care team—as well as your own rabbi or spiritual advisor when requested.
You receive care in the place you and your family prefer. That can be in your own home, in a hospital or nursing home or in another long-term care setting. The Marshak Family Hospice Pavilion and Hospice Suite at Northwest Community Hospital are also available when medically necessary.
We work with Medicare, Medicaid or your private insurance to obtain reimbursement for the services we provide to you. Those payments, in addition to philanthropic donations, cover the costs of Jewish Care Services; therefore, you will not receive a bill for services.
Our community outreach initiatives are another important aspect of Jewish Care Services. From one-on-one conversations to presentations and workshops for large groups, we can help you and your congregation understand the Jewish perspective on advance care planning, palliative care and hospice. These educational offerings also are provided free of charge.
