Meet Your Neighbor

The Campus of the Jewish Home is hosting its next Meet Your Neighbor. Every month, this talk-show-style event will feature one person from our own backyard who will share their story of life, love, and laughs. Join us February 13, 11:00 a.m. for Corky Goldstein.

Corky Goldstein is a Life & Legacy donor, lifelong Harrisburg resident, volunteer, attorney, and the list goes on. He will give us a glimpse into some of the events in his life that he cherishes most such as growing up in our local Jewish community, fun times at the JCC, and some important experiences in his professional career. You will not want to miss this opportunity to hear his fascinating stories.

Both residents/guests of The Campus and community members are welcome to attend. Community members are strongly encouraged to RSVP to this event. The Campus is a secure building so RSVPs are recommended for ease of entry. To RSVP or nominate yourself, a friend, or a family member for Meet Your Neighbor please contact Katie Crane at katie@helixllc.org or 717-857-7425.

Salon Services

The Campus is proud to announce a partnership with PS Salon and Spa! PS Salon will be handling all salon services on The Campus and we invite you to join us January 30, 2020 for a “Meet and Greet” with PS Salon! We will be in the SSA starting at 10:45 for the chance to get to know them, the services they offer as well as learn about Celebration Accounts and gift certificates.

PS Salon is the leading national Senior community Salon and Spa provider. Great care and consideration was taken when looking for a new Salon Service company and we could not be more exited to have them join us. Melissa will be the new stylist, stop in and say hello!

Employee(s) of the Year

Each year, Campus CEO Allen Geckle announcers the recipients of the Esther Jacobs Atlas Awards for Employees of the Year.  There’s an award for the Nursing Employee of the Year and an award for non-Nursing/Support Services Employee of the Year.  Besides a cash award, our Employees of the Year choose a designated parking spot, which they keep for the entire year. Notably, Employees of the Year are chosen by residents, families and other staff members.

This year, Allen presented the Nursing Employee of the Year award to Nurse Rayna Dormer and non-Nursing Employee of the Year award to Driver Clyde Rucker.

Congratulations to both our 2019 winners!
