“When we walk into Tamarisk we feel as though we are walking into my father’s home and not a facility.

It’s such a comfort to know he is safe, has made wonderful friends with fellow residents and staff, and is eating delicious meals.”

“Jewish Eldercare of RI (JERI) may be one of the most creative responses to a crisis in nursing home care that any community anywhere has ever devised.”

—The Jewish Voice of Rhode Island

“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful care my mother receives. It has given me tremendous peace of mind to know that she is in a safe environment being well cared for while I am at work.”

“This has been a wonderful experience. Thanks to all involved!”

“From the moment my Dad entered the [Celebrations Adult Day] program, we could feel the warmth of the staff and clients. He loved attending each day and felt like he had a purpose in life.”

“My son had an accident last year and became terribly anxious. I didn’t know where to turn to get help.… Now he is so much better. I’m truly not sure what would have happened if we didn’t have someone help us at that crucial time.”

“The people who looked after mom will always be in my heart. She loved each and every one of them.”
