Text of letter from the Jewish Community Center to Rabbi Manfred Rabenstein:
"Your Center is for Everyone" • Jewish Community Center • 1580 Summit Rd., Cincinnati, Ohio 45237
GARY M. SCHREIBER Executive Director
March 9, 1981
Dear Rabbi Rabenstein:
I would like to take this opportunity to bring the 0.A.S.S.S (Older Adult Supportive Services) program at the Jewish Community Center to your attention. The function of OASSS is to prevent or delay institutionalization for the Jewish elderly by providing supportive services in their home. When a family member Cr friend becomes ill or must deal with the transition from hospital to home it can be very difficult. Knowing where to go, who to call, and what is needed is frustrating. If OASSS is contacted we could help with the home care planning. We provide services such as hospital discharge planning, home care planning, counseling and follow-up visits. You may have contacts with the elderly from your congregation. If you have members who would benefit from our services, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
If you have any questions or would like additional information, feel free to contact me.
Thank you for your interest. Sincerely,
Judith Vangrov Kelman, MPH Supervisor, OASSS
