New Building Construction Update

Construction on the new Harold Schnitzer Health & Rehabilitation Care Center continues here on campus today, Monday, October 26, 2015.


Selection committee members and CSP staff checking out fabric and other options.

Off campus, a few volunteers and staff began the process last week of selecting fabrics and finishes for the new buildings. Special thanks go out to our selection committee members including Martha Soltesz and Carol Koranda!

Foundations have already been poured for the new building right next to Robison.

Walls are beginning to be framed and are going up next.

Down below Robison, work is still happening to level the ground for the new parking lot area and construction.

More construction information soon. Stay tuned.

Everyone has a lot of stuff. Often we are so overwhelmed by the prospect of dealing with our stuff, that we postpone decisions about moving – even when moving is in our best interest. Join Theresa Giddings of Soft landings to hear practical ideas about how to deal with all those things you’ve accumulated over the years, and to learn why the time to start doing this is NOW.

Caring for People with Dementia

Sunday, November 8, 1:30-3pmMichelle-Meierottob

Caring for People with Dementia

With Michele Meierotto, Serenity Hospice

When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they often feel vulnerable and in need of reassurance and support. The people closest to them – including their caregivers, friends and family – need to do everything they can to help them retain their sense of identity and feelings of self-worth. This presentation will lay the foundation for better understanding of effective approach and interactions.

Michelle Meierotto is a Hospice Consultant with Serenity Hospice. She has had direct experience with dementia through both her grandmother’s and father’s diseases. She considers it an honor to help guide patients and families through the difficulty of coping with dementia. Michelle earned a degree in Health Education from Oregon State University. She feels this was the knowledge foundation that has helped her adapt to many communication styles and personal and emotional perspectives that frequently surface due to the delicate nature of hospice care.

You are invited: Caregiver Support Group

Cedar Sinai Park, in collaboration with Jewish Family & Child Service and Sinai In-Home Care, invite you to a family support group:

“It Takes a Village: Supporting Families Caring for Elders”

Caring for a family member – whether in your home, their home or in another care setting – can be very stressful.  Even if you do not provide hands-on care, you may struggle with a lack of privacy, sleep deprivation, feelings of anger, guilt or depression, or an overwhelming sense of responsibility for the wellbeing of your loved one.

We are here to tell you that you are not alone.

Please note that the group will now meet on the third Tuesday of each month.  The group will be facilitated by David Molko, Senior Outreach Clinician for Jewish Family & Child Service. Participants have the opportunity to share their concerns, explore solutions to problems, and suggest topics for future meetings.

Tuesday, October 20th at 7:00 p.m.

May Living Room at Rose Schnitzer Manor

6140 SW Boundary Street, Portland

Please contact Irit Mandelsberg at 503.535.4212 or at to reserve your place today.
