Cedar Village

Our mission is to provide residents of the Greater Cincinnati community with the highest quality healthcare, senior residential and community services, in keeping with Jewish values. Our vision is that aging will be a fulfilling and enriching experience for older adults and their families and our work is focused on that objective.

Mission Accomplished

The Group
The Group

Our Israel travelers came home on Sunday, November 2nd to a wonderful homecoming reception. There were "Welcome Home" signs in the lobby and the Wilbur and Mary Jean Cohen Center was filled with a welcoming crowd.  Outside the Cohen Center, display boards held prints of many of the photos of our Interfaith Mission and folks told us how much they enjoyed sharing the trip through the photos.  We will soon be organizing programs to be able to share our experiences with our Cedar Village family and the community-hope you'll join us for that.

Ten days of international travel with older adults is both hard work and pure joy.  I will tell you that every member of our group of 30 learned new things, developed new relationships and bonds and had the opportunity to see the world through the perspective of others.  We had some incredibly powerful moments, like standing together at the Western Wall; we had some wonderfully emotional moments, like being the honored guests at a special concert of the Ankor Choir.  We shared joy as we watched the re-consecration of a marriage that is 62 years strong and we shared laughter as we danced an improvised hora while sailing on the Sea of Galilee.  We were inspired by the incredible accomplishments of Kishorit, a community for adults with special needs and amazed by the extraordinary programs of Yad L'Kashish, Lifeline for the Elderly.  Regardless of our differences in age, background, religion and more, we came together and demonstrated just what we had intended-that building bridges is possible at any age, that we are never too old to learn and be open to new experiences.

Even though the Mission is complete, your donations will help offset the expenses of making such a trip possible.

Getting Ready for the Holidays

Chanukah Fairy Arrives
Chanukah Fairy Arrives

It’s that time of year when the Chanukah and Christmas fairies descend upon Cedar Village to grant special wishes to the residents living in healthcare and the rehabilitation units of our retirement community. Each year as a part of the annual Mitzvah Day tradition, residents are surprised with a gift that they expressed as something special.

Whether it’s a cherished CD of jazz music or an electric toothbrush, each gift is meticulously sought after. It’s an amazing feeling to see the expression on these residents’ faces as they unwrap their special something.

It’s because of the generosity of donors like you that Cedar Village is able to provide these extra added acts of kindness to our residents. It is our goal to fulfill the lives of our residents while granting wishes. And for Mitzvah Day, this annual tradition is it!

Exercise and Art

At Cedar Village in Mason, Ohio, we strive to enrich the lives of our elders through music, art and exercise. Recently, our residents participated in ceramics classes, choir rehearsals and exercise classes. With the support of donors, we are able to make the lives of our residents full of activity and excitement. From starting the morning off with light stretching to an afternoon of music appreciation and ending with painting, residents are actively engaged in ways they never dreamed possible.

As one resident said, "I may have some days with aches and pains, but once I am making flower arrangements or playing in the bell choir, I feel great.”
