Brandman Centers for Senior Care Playing a Pivotal Role for Seniors

From the earliest days of the pandemic, the Brandman Centers for Senior Care (BCSC), a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), distinguished itself as one of the jewels in the crown of the Los Angeles Jewish Home. While many other, similar programs across the country closed their doors as COVID-19 reached crisis proportions, BCSC took all of the extra safety steps required to stay open, ensuring vulnerable seniors had ongoing access to the center, as well as critical care through the clinic, rehabilitation services and much more.

Get Ready to Be a Mensch

"I am grateful every day to be here. After surviving cancer and 18 surgeries, I benefit so much from the Home’s incredible care. Soon after I got here, I even celebrated my second bar mitzvah – my family came to watch me read from the Torah in honor of my 83rd birthday. It was truly meaningful."The Home is well known for its positive impact in people’s lives. As we live longer, our needs for medical and social support increase, and the Home is dedicated to helping seniors in our community thrive. But it takes your generous donations to make it happen.
