Agency Spotlight: Beth Sholom Home of Eastern Virginia

Thu, 08/30/2018 - 4:33pm

Since 1980, Beth Sholom Home of Eastern Virginia has served as the only nursing facility in Tidewater that embodies traditional Jewish values, customs, and traditions. A full time religious leader, kosher food, holidays, and special observances enable residents to continue to live with dignity, and as Jews.

The Berger-Goldrich Health Care and Rehabilitation Center is a skilled nursing & Rehabilitation center that accepts payer types. The Berger-Goldrich Health Care and Rehabilitation Center is a Five-Star facility as deemed by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and was recently named in U.S. News & World Report as a “Best Nursing Home” in 2017-2018. 

The Berger-Goldrich Health Care & Rehabilitation Center is currently undergoing a major renovation. All rooms will have a walk-in shower and an upgraded bathroom. As rehabilitation becomes a major focus of the facility, the rehabilitation gyms will be expanded and upgraded.  All common areas and multipurpose areas will have new and modern décor. Anticipated completion of the renovation will be June 2019.

Seniors who are no longer able to live on their own find a new lease on life at The Terrace at Beth Sholom Village. The Terrace, a Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Assisted Living Center, can accommodate 84 residents in 69 units. The Terrace provides gracious assisted living where residents can live comfortably in their own studio, one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartment.

Kosher meals are served daily by the wait staff in the dining room, and snacks and drinks are always available in the Club Room. The activity calendar is filled with entertainment, outings, art programs and a wide variety of in-house activities, including daily exercise. A caring staff provides scheduled transportation for shopping and doctor appointments. Licensed nurses attend to residents’ regular medical needs and are available for more urgent situations. The Memory Enhancement Center allows residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia-related illness to be as independent as possible within a safe and secure environment.

Professional affiliations exist with The Freda H. Gordon Hospice and Palliative Care Center, Generations Home Health, Jewish Family Service of Tidewater, Eastern Virginia Medical School, Glennan Center, and Services as well as ECPI University. These affiliations allow us to offer a full array of services to our residents within our facility and in the Hampton Roads community.
