Jewish Home Family Receives Top Awards For Programming and Achievement

(Courtesy of Jewish Home Family) The Jewish Home Family received two top awards from LeadingAge New Jersey & Delaware, the organization representing nonprofit elder care agencies across those states.

The Excellence in Community Service Award was granted to the Jewish Home for the array of virtual programs they deployed soon after the COVID-19 pandemic began, serving former and current clients as well as those living at home. Jewish Home Assisted Living Director of Admissions and Community Outreach Charlene Vannucci and Director of Communications & Technology
Ezra HaLevi accepted the award on behalf of the Jewish Home.

Jewish Home Family President and CEO Carol Silver Elliott was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, though she made it clear in her speech that it should not be construed to mean she is anywhere near finished leading the Jewish Home or serving the community. “There’s a lot of achievement left in my lifetime—I hope, but I am so deeply appreciative for this award and incredibly grateful to my team for nominating me for this award,” she said at the awards ceremony.

Silver Elliott is the president and CEO of the Jewish Home Family, located in northern New Jersey. Serving older adults for more than a century, the Jewish Home continuum of services includes the Jewish Home at Rockleigh, offering both long-term care and short-term rehabilitation; Jewish Home Assisted Living; Jewish Home at Home, providing home health care services; and Jewish Home Foundation. Prior to joining the Jewish Home Family in 2014, Silver Elliott served as the president and CEO of Cedar Village Retirement Community in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Silver Elliott began her career in acute care, serving strategic roles in marketing, planning and public relations. Entering the world of older adult services in 2007, she immediately became involved on both a state and national level. She serves on the board of the Association of Jewish Aging Services and served as chair of the board from 2013-2015. She was a board member of LeadingAge Ohio and also served two terms on the board of LeadingAge NewJersey/Delaware. She is also a member of the board of the VNA of Central New Jersey.

In 2012 Silver Elliott joined the board of LeadingAge, the organization that represents nonprofit senior care providers around the country, and completed a two-year term as chair, currently serving as immediate past chair. Passionate about elder abuse prevention, Silver Elliott was instrumental in founding the Shalom Center at Cedar Village in 2010 and in developing SeniorHaven at the Jewish Home in 2015. She is the recipient of numerous state and national awards for innovation and leadership and has spoken at conferences both around the country and internationally. Her biweekly blogs in The Times of Israel have been published continuously since 2015.
