Support Programs For Seniors

Enriching the lives of Residents In Elder Care Communities

Welcome to Jewish Pavilion Senior Services

Enriching the lives of residents in elder-care communities

At Jewish Pavilion Senior Services, we believe in nurturing the hearts and souls of our community’s seniors. Our experienced Program Directors bring Jewish holidays, Sabbath services, and Jewish culture to seniors in long-term care and assisted-living communities across Central Florida. More importantly, they bring warmth, friendship, and love.

Our Commitment

Our dedicated team of volunteers and staff is committed to providing heartfelt, compassionate care that goes beyond physical needs. We understand the importance of emotional and spiritual well-being, and we strive to enrich the lives of our seniors through personalized visits, engaging activities, and meaningful connections.

A Sense of Belonging

We know that feeling connected and valued is essential for everyone, especially our seniors. At Jewish Pavilion Senior Services, we create a warm and inclusive environment where seniors can celebrate their heritage, share their stories, and enjoy the company of friends and family. Our programs and events are designed to bring smiles, laughter, and a sense of belonging to everyone involved.

Support for Families

We understand that caring for an elderly loved one can be both rewarding and challenging. Jewish Pavilion Senior Services is here to support families every step of the way. It begins with our Orlando Senior Help Desk (407-678-9363) and continues with educational resources, support groups, or simply lending a listening ear. We are dedicated to helping families navigate the journey of elder care with compassion and understanding.

Our History

The Jewish Pavilion was founded more than a decade ago to ensure our elders living in senior communities throughout Central Florida can stay connected to their traditions. The organization was originally focused on opening the first “Jewish home” in Orlando, but realized the mission could be served by visiting seniors where they live – in more than 50 communities throughout our region.
