The William Breman Jewish Home


Overview   

The William Breman Jewish Home is a five-star rated, 96-bed Medicare and Medicaid certified facility specializing in long-term skilled nursing care, Alzheimer's/dementia care and short-term rehabilitative care. We have been providing skilled nursing care for over 60 years. As one of Atlanta’s leading senior residential care providers, the Home is committed to providing a warm, caring and homelike environment to enhance the quality of life of its residents.

Care Team

We utilize our interdisciplinary Care Team works closely with nurse practitioners and physicians to ensure the highest level of comprehensive care and personal attention to individual needs. Our Care Team includes:
  • Registered Nurses 
  • Licensed Nurses
  • Certified Nursing Assistants
  • Rehabilitation Therapists
  • Social Workers
  • Recreational Therapists 
  • Registered Dietitian
The Home has favorable staff to resident ratios that allows staff members to spend more meaningful time with each resident. Residents enjoy having the same nursing staff members caring for them on a daily basis during the week by The Home’s Monday through Friday staff and on weekends by nursing staff members who work only on weekends. Consistent dietary staff and housekeeping staff are assigned to each resident area.
 
Our Neighborhoods: A Culture Change Journey    

The Home began its Culture Change journey in 1995 when the present skilled nursing home and rehabilitation center was designed. The Home has 4 floors, or Neighborhoods. Each neighborhood has 2 pods of 12 residents.  

Consistent assignments of staff members from each department to each Neighborhood contribute to comfort and familiarity as well as to The Home’s low staff turnover rate. Staff members, residents and residents’ family members become extended family to others in the neighborhood. 

Walking in the Neighborhoods is a rich experience. Residents, family members, staff members, volunteers and other visitors enjoy the “Portrait Project” that is permanently displayed in each resident dining room. Each resident living in the area around that dining room has his/her professional portrait and the results of questions from a personal interview displayed. The portrait and interview results are a tool for staff, volunteers, family members and visitors to use in order to learn about residents and help facilitate residents and staff members to have conversations with each other and help residents develop friendships within their neighborhood.

Features on each resident floor include:
  • Small dining rooms where 12 residents enjoy meal times in an intimate setting and are encouraged to help themselves to take anything from the refrigerator or fresh fruit from the kitchen counter
  • Living room where residents enjoy programming and a 60” flat screen television
  • Garden room where residents enjoy the outdoors from indoors
  • Floor-to-ceiling windows in each resident room that allows each resident to enjoy spectacular views
  • Luxurious-spa bathing rooms 

Resident Activities 

Recreation therapists provide a variety of engaging and social activities for our residents. Activities include outings, cocktail hour, musical entertainment, manicures, pet therapy, fitness programs, crafts, storytelling, photography, poetry writing, challah baking and cookie baking groups, intergenerational programs, discussion groups and social gatherings, which provide daily social, spiritual, creative and intellectual stimulation.
