Our Planetree Philosophy of Caring

We have adopted a philosophy of "relationship-centered care" known as Planetree.  As a Planetree community, we partner with our residents and family members to identify and satisfy their individual needs and preferences. In addition to improving our residents' experience, we also focus on supporting the professional and personal aspirations of our staff members, who can more effectively care for residents if they are cared for themselves.  For more information about Planetree, click here.

What People Say About Jerome Home

“Blanca Soto is one determined lady. Even when she was challenged by an extended recuperation following two back surgeries, she never lost sight of her goal: eventually returning to her home in Berlin.

Soto, 87, had been in pain for years due to spinal stenosis that also affected her right leg. After two surgeries, her surgeon recommended Jerome Home in New Britain for her recovery. She became a resident of the long-term care neighborhood at the community which also provides skilled nursing, short-term rehabilitation, memory care and assisted living.

“I had never been to a place like that but my daughter thought it would be better for me,” Soto said. “It was so nice.”

At first she required a mechanical lift to transfer from bed to a chair. She received physical therapy while residing in short-term rehabilitation. When she moved to the long-term neighborhood, she was then referred to Jerome Home’s Good Life Fitness program. Three times each week, exercise physiologists guided her through her individualized fitness plan, designed to build her strength, stamina and mobility. “The coaches were very good, worked me hard,” Soto said.

“You rarely meet clients with a calm determination like Blanca. She consistently came to her sessions ready to work hard, and had the patience to stay within the guidelines of her program. I attribute much of her success to the combination of these two qualities: patience and determination,” said Robert Schmelzer, exercise physiologist.

Over the course of her five-month stay, Jerome Home became like home. “I had so many friends there,” Soto said, speaking of residents and staff.

“Blanca was either in the fitness center or in her room, reading, relaxing, watching TV or hosting visitors,” said Kate Rabinoff, MSW, resident services coordinator. “She has a beautiful personality and always had a smile. She made other people feel good.”
As Soto improved in strength and mobility, it became evident that she would reach her goal. “It is rare to discharge residents from the long-term care neighborhood,” Rabinoff said. “She is a tremendous success story. I’m so glad she was able to return home.”

David Kimball, son-in-law, said the exercise program was key. “It was something she could work at and pursue rigorously. Once she decided she could do more, there was no turning back. I want to credit Jerome Home for having this arrangement,” he said. “She couldn’t have done it without their support.”

Even though Soto is delighted to have her regained independence at home with her son-in-law and daughter, Judy, she misses her friends – and the food - at Jerome Home. “It was a beautiful experience,” she said.
