Your Guide for Residents & Families at the Hebrew Home
Library
Books, magazines, games and puzzles on
the shelves in the Conservatory on the first
floor are for your enjoyment. You are
welcome to take these items to your room.
Please return them when you are finished.
Lost & Found
Many “found” items, such as car keys,
jewelry, cell phones and eyeglasses,
are turned in at the front desk.
For residents’ clothing, possibly missing
in laundry, call the Laundry at
301.770.8372
.
It’s a good idea to label easily misplaced
items (TV remotes and umbrellas for
instance) with the resident’s name.
To inquire about a resident’s missing
eyeglasses, hearing aids or dentures,
speak with your nurse manager.
Mail
Incoming mail should be addressed to:
Your name/room number
c/o Hebrew Home of Greater Washington
6121 Montrose Road
Rockville, MD 20852
All incoming mail comes to this address,
regardless of the building you reside in.
If you live in the Smith-Kogod Residence
and you are expecting a hand-delivered
item, such as a fruit basket or flowers, you
should use the address 6105 Montrose Road.
Stamps can be purchased at the Home’s
bank. Outgoing stamped mail can be left
at the front desk.
Newspapers
The
Washington Post
can be delivered to
you; call subscriber services at

. A coin-operated newsstand

Post
.
Notary Public Services
This is a free service for residents and
families. Check in Administration in the
Wasserman Residence and in Administration
or Development in Smith-Kogod.
Piano
If you enjoy playing the piano, you are
welcome to use one of ours. There is a
piano in the Wasserman Conservatory, the
Smith-Kogod Social Hall and on some units.
Private Duty Caregivers
If you are interested in engaging private duty
assistance, Home Care Solutions, a partner-
ship between the Home and Augustine Home
Health Care, is one resource, and they will
take care of credentialing and registration for
you; call
301.816.5020
. For other attendants,
you may obtain a registration packet from
your social worker or from Human
Resources in the Smith-Kogod Residence;
call
301.770.8500
.
Because regulations require TB tests,
criminal background checks and proof of
liability insurance to be on file, it may be
convenient to hire an aide through an
agency which provides this documentation.
