Lately, I've been working with The New Jewish Home, a nursing home with facilities in Manhattan, Bronx and Westchester County in NY. We're building their image library with images of staff, residents and various activities. I'm looking for spontaneous moments that are unfolding around me. It's been an enriching experience; seeing nursing home not as soulless facility, but as a family-like place where elderly spend their time actively and where staff and residents constantly interact.
Some of the images have been published in Magazine, a publication that The New Jewish Home produces bi-annually. The article below describes small houses, a novel concept of living in nursing homes where bedrooms, a living room, dinning area and a kitchen form a house-like unit. It creates a very homely experience for the residents.
