Background Statement
The Jewish Housing Council Foundation (JHCF) is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian corporation whose mission is to support the programs and services of the Sarasota-Manatee Jewish Housing Council. In response to the needs of the senior community of Sarasota-Manatee in 1987, the Jewish Housing Council had a vision to develop Sarasota's only rental senior living community offering a full continuum of care - independent living, assisted living, secure memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation. The vision became the current campus, which utilizes a medical model to provide a broad array of services and programs. The Jewish Housing Council Foundation supports the work of the Jewish Housing Council through two major events: Keeping the Dream Alive, which funds the Benevolent Care Program, and 8 Over 80, which celebrates outstanding community leaders and philanthropists that have made a remarkable difference in our community. The JHCF also funds educational programming for the greater community through Kobernick University, as well as supports lectures, social events, art and music to enrich the lives of community members.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
As President of the Board of the Jewish Housing Council Foundation, I am delighted to share that our organization, while 23 years old, is implementing a strategic plan and putting into effect new branding.  One of the challenges of our organization is simply the proliferation of alternative housing opportunities for seniors in the Sarasota-Manatee area.  The Jewish Housing Council and its Kobernick-Anchin-Benderson campus is the only senior rental community with a full continuum of care.  This means that a senior, if necessary, can access the continuum of care from independent living to assisted living to memory care to skilled nursing or rehabilitation should his or her needs change.  Sitting on 27 acres, we have created an oasis of senior life that is based upon our dedication to provide residents with dignity as they age.  
As with any campus, the challenges we faced were to renovate and rejuvenate our look and appeal. This also includes staying relevant in our programs and our services. This year, we have been fortunate to meet those challenges. Our goal is to enhance the quality and the variety of the residents’ experience on campus. This will also improve our market differentiation, as services become even more consistent with our core mission.

We began by enhancing our curb appeal through new lighting and landscaping. Our new Integrated Wellness Center will provide cutting edge services that will lead our residents and eventually the community as well, towards a more comprehensive and holistic approach toward wellness promotion and illness prevention. The components of this Integrated Wellness Center include a Brain Health Navigator, who will be instrumental in guiding residents to our onsite physicians, namely a Gerontologist and Neurologist, but also to our exercise and fitness center as well. One of the important elements is a new onsite residents’ pharmacy, that will not only dispense medications, but also review all of the residents’ medications to ensure proper dosage and that medications do not conflict with one another.

The fitness center will be unique in that it will have strength training equipment that utilizes compressed air, rather than weights so that seniors can benefit from small incremental advances in the way they progress. We will add Yoga, low impact Aerobics, Pilates, Tai Chi and other classes that support wellness. Our pool area has been upgraded to include a cover for shade, so that socialization and aquatics can be more inviting in the sunny days. 

One of the essential components of this effort will be to expand our multipurpose room to accommodate 250 people. This will give us an opportunity to provide evocative lectures, performing art and music to all, including the surrounding community. We also will include education on healthy eating, finance, technology, history and politics.

Choosing to volunteer with this organization was easy. The choice was based upon our Founders’ Dream to provide a safe and enjoyable living environment for people that did not have great wealth. It was also to provide support for those seniors that qualified, for our Benevolent Care program. As seniors live longer and longer, their resources get depleted and it is a national crisis, not just local to our community.

Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

The Jewish Housing Council Foundation is a unique entity supporting the compassionate service of the Jewish Housing Council and its campus, Kobernick-Anchin-Benderson. For 23 years, we have provided excellence in senior care with an emphasis on a holistic approach toward wellness and optimum living. When I took the position as CEO two years ago, I was delighted to discover how vibrant the residents are that live on our 27 acre campus, right in the heart of Sarasota. When I arrived, I also knew that there was much work to be accomplished and with the assistance of very dedicated Foundation and Operating Boards, we have made vast improvements in our delivery of service, programs and overall experience on campus. Both Boards have been instrumental in helping to support the funding the renovations that include, but not limited to: upgrading the pool deck and aquatic area, enlarging and upgrading the bistro, helping to launch an onsite resident pharmacy, as well as an Integrated Wellness Center that will focus on Brain Health, exercise & fitness and education through Kobernick University, which will be available to residents and the entire community. In addition, we are re-branding our campus and recently went through a strategic planning process that will guide our next 3-5 years. 

The distinction is when someone arrives on our campus and is greeted with openness and warmth, which has become a trademark of who we are as an organization. We have based our philosophy on Jewish values, but are open to all who wish to join us.  These values include our devotion to caring for others and honoring the dignity that individuals should experience as they age, in fact, at any age. Our ideal is to create an atmosphere that engages our residents and the community with thought provoking lectures, fun and entertaining outings, stimulating discussions and lots of music, art and cultural offerings. We continue to strive to advance our vision of all that is possible for our residents and support them in remaining independent. We are the only nonprofit rental community with a continuum of care in Sarasota and we pride ourselves in providing the best services and programs whether someone is at Kobernick (Independent Living), Anchin (Assisted Living and Memory Care) or Benderson (Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation). Our future looks bright and we envision other projects that will utilize some of the remaining space on our 27 acre campus in ways that will add to the options for residents, their families and the greater community at large.

Description Kobernick University began in August 2013. It offers life-enriching classes to our residents and to the community. We partner with Suncoast Institute, SILL, Senior Friendship Center and speakers from the arts organizations and other faculty and presenters to bring a wealth of classes into Kobernick House and Anchin Pavilion. We spend about $1,500 per month to promote the classes with direct mail pieces to targeted zip codes. Other expenses include refreshments and supplies and copies for some of the instructors. Actress Nan Colton charges $400 per presentation, and her portrayals of Agatha Christie, Georgia O'Keeffe and Berthe Morisot are among our most popular presentations. In addition, we wish to expand our programs to include evocative lectures, seminars and performing art, once our multi-purpose room is built.

Short Term Success Ageing is one of the largest social and economic challenges in the Sarasota-Manatee community. With the steady influx of seniors 65+ relocating or vacationing in our area, organizations like Kobernick- Anchin-Benderson, must prepare to offer wholesome education practiced with methodologies and specially designed courses, activities, and materials to improve the quality of life of local seniors.  From a broader perspective, Kobernick University aims to increase the well-being and quality of life for its senior learners. In this context, teaching becomes a socio-educational activity where more formal, non-formal and informal activities are blended. The knowledge senior students acquire is important, but other gained skills, attitudes and aims should not be overlooked such as socialization, integration, adapting to society, active citizenship, etc. Through continued exposure and class involvement in a myriad of topics throughout the year, seniors will experience a better quality of life, much needed socialization and enjoy the benefits of learning and cognitive improvement. 
Long Term Success According to the U.S. Census, Sarasota County has the third highest percentage of residents 65 and over, the second highest percentage of residents aged 75 and over and the highest percentage of residents aged 85 and over (Source: U.S. Census Bureau, 2010 Census, SF1 data). By 2030, Sarasota County expects 39.4% of its population to be over the age of 65. Class involvement in multiple subject areas offered by Kobernick University throughout the year gives seniors a better quality of life, socialization opportunities and the benefits of learning and cognitive improvement.
Program Success Monitoring
Kobernick University classes and participation have increased at a rate of 25% per year since 2013. To date 4,680 people have taken classes on our campus. At a focus group held in March 2016, participants from our neighboring Meadows community knew about Kobernick-Anchin-Benderson because of our lifelong learning offerings.
Evaluation forms were recently incorporated to understand what students and instructors like or dislike about our educational offerings. Our space being too small and not serving a variety of purposes is one obstacle to the number of participants and what type of classes can be offered. In response, we plan to build a 250-person multi-purpose room/auditorium. Historically we have planned classes monthly. Starting in the fall we will move to a 3-semester year to accommodate the schedules of students and teachers who wish to plan their calendars as well as to include classes across categories on a regular basis. 
Program Success Examples

Kobernick University was launched in 2013 to enhance our comprehensive approach to wellness and awareness in the larger community. Social interaction and intellectual stimulation are drivers of wellbeing in older adults which impact quality and quantity of life. People who may ordinarily be isolated are persuaded to join others with similar interests.

To date more than 285 classes/lectures/workshops in topic areas such as Arts, Cooking, History, Literature, Technology, Music, Wellness, Economics, Politics, and Social Issues have been held for residents and the larger community. Friendships have fostered internally and in community and we have seen an increase in the number of residents, staff members, and community members who want to teach on our campus.
The Dakim Brain Academy offers Kobernick House independent living residents and assisted living residents at Anchin Pavilion a fun, comprehensive 20-minute workout using an interactive approach to stimulate the brain. Participants log into their own account on the Dakim touch screen computer and listen to thought-provoking stories, play math games, trivia and memory puzzles. The goal is to solve the puzzles and respond correctly to questions on a broad range of topics, for example, sports, history and current events. Each day it presents different activities based on the residents’ score the last time he or she participated. Therefore, the questions become more challenging or certain areas of cognition that may be in need of improvement are reviewed.
IN2L is another computer-based program offering social, cognitive, spiritual and physical interaction to assisted living residents and rehab patients at Anchin Pavilion and Benderson Skilled Nursing.

In the Anchin Pavilion’s Memory Care wing, the Multi-sensory Room and the 1950s Kitchen both encourage reminiscent-based activities.The Multisensory Room opened in November, 2013, adding more options in the innovative person-centered care provided at Anchin Pavilion. Both the Multisensory Room and the 1950s Kitchen offer different pathways to achieve specific goals based on the individual's plan of care. Both use positive memories to spark interaction and conversation, modify negative behaviors, provide positive focal points and enhance overall sense of happiness and well-being, which improves quality of life. The Multisensory therapy includes stimulation of visual, olfactory, auditory, vestibular and proprioceptive senses. Now being explored is another option for delivering sensory therapy to the residents of the Benderson Family Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center via portable therapy carts that can be taken to the person's bedside.

She was not interested in any out of room activities, except PT, OT, ST. One day she attended the Music Therapy program and lit up with excitement with the song, “Them Bones”. Her part was to sing “Dry Bones” when the therapist pointed the guitar at her. It took her several tries, but she succeeded with joy and laughter! The music helped her find her voice in English again.


Our Memory Support Program is for individuals with Dementia related diseases who live in our Memory Support Center.

Program Success Examples

Case study, GD: Resident spent most days sitting on the sofa in the community living room, asleep, or watching TV before beginning the program. Resident chose to not participate in group activities. Once the program began, we found that he enjoyed having a schedule to follow and being engaged with staff and volunteers. His interests increased, and even became more alert and interactive. The result was increased appetite related to more energy being spent on activities during the day.

Case study, CM: Resident was an introverted female who spent most days sitting in crossed arms and legs position, with eyes closed. She appeared to be pulling back from and tuning out her surroundings. While in the program, she opened up her arms, played with a ball, tapped her toes to music, and even lifted her head, opened her eyes and smiled often.

Financial Comments by Organization As with any nonprofit operating in a very competitive donor climate, we are continually challenged to create distinction and value for donors for their investment in our organization.  This guides us towards ensuring that funds are spent wisely, the impact is great and our donors are respected for their interests and wishes.  We have wonderful opportunities ahead as we expand our programs and services to include our new integrated wellness center, recently renovated recreation room, new pool area and new bistro. These campus enhancements allow us to serve our residents, but also encourage the greater community of Sarasota to join in our activities and events.  While we realize the competition for senior lifestyles is great in the area, we also are certain that we offer an environment which is truly home to those that live with us.  In addition, our senior management and our board have the vision and determination to move our organization forward and keep pace with others in the field.  The opportunities to bring new kinds of housing are available as we explore the ways in which we want to enrich our campus.  We are confident with our new brand of Aviva - A Campus for Senior Life, we will attain our goals and serve our mission.
