Los Angeles Jewish Home today announced plans to develop a senior care community in The Village at Playa Vista and the surrounding areas that will serve the residential, healthcare and in-home needs of upwards of 600 seniors on the Westside of Los Angeles. This marks the first time in its 100 year history that Jewish Home will have a physical presence on the Westside.The Gonda Healthy Aging Westside Campus – made possible through the generosity of the Leslie and Susan Gonda (Goldschmied) Foundation — will form the hub of an extensive network of Westside Jewish Home facilities and services.  With an 18-month wait list of about 400 — half of which live on the Westside — the Gonda Campus furthers the Jewish Home’s mission of serving as many seniors as possible.

The Gonda Campus will feature The Brandman Building, a gift of The Saul Brandman Foundation, and will include a 176-unit continuing care retirement community for independent seniors.  In addition, the campus will provide 24 units for assisted living and memory care.

Located nearby the Gonda Campus will be a Brandman Centers for Senior Care (BCSC) a Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) site that will care for an additional 240 seniors.  Plans also call for a 60-bed skilled nursing facility to be located in the same vicinity.

“I am very excited and encouraged with the development of the Playa Vista site on the Westside,” Leslie Gonda said.  “I look forward to the opening of the Gonda Healthy Aging Westside Campus.”

Molly Forrest, Jewish Home CEO-President, added: “With seniors being the fastest growing segment of the population, providing services on the Westside has been a Jewish Home dream for many years.  As we enter our second century of service, it is a testament to the generosity of the donor community and dedication of our board that we are now on a path to turn this dream into reality.”

“The Playa Vista community is looking forward to being the home to the Los Angeles Jewish Home’s new Westside facility,” said Playa Capital Company Co-President Patti Sinclair. “There is an enormous need for senior facilities in this area.”
