The Kutz Home
At the Kutz Home, growing older is recognized as a special time of life. Our trained staff cares for all the needs of our residents–medical, emotional, social, and spiritual. These needs are met with sensitivity and compassion, in an environment nurturing Jewish tradition and values. Our residents receive the highest quality of skilled care and rehabilitative services while maintaining a sense of personal continuity with family, friends, and community.
The Kutz Home is Medicare-certified as a rehabilitation center providing on-site physical, occupational, and speech therapies to its residents. These therapies are also offered to individuals who require them on a short-term basis before returning to their own homes. All therapeutic programs are designed by licensed therapists to build confidence and pride – to help residents accomplish the simple daily tasks that many of us tend to take for granted: walking, dressing, talking, and swallowing.
Jewish values and tradition are very important aspects of life at the Kutz Home. Services are conducted on Friday evenings, Saturdays, and holidays in our synagogue. Residents can light candles for Shabbat and yahrzeit in our candle room. All meals at the Kutz Home are kosher, in addition to being delicious and plentiful. The Home welcomes clergy of all religions, and residents feel comfortable observing their individual faiths.
The Kutz Home traces its roots to 1902, when members of the Ladies Bichor Cholem Society began visiting Wilmington's sick and elderly. Through great perseverance, the Society acquired a home in downtown Wilmington in 1920, and moved to larger quarters in 1942. When additional space was needed, our current Home was built in 1960 through the generosity of Milton and Hattie Kutz and other members of the community. In 1997, the Home was renovated and expanded to include its present 90 beds, an activities mall, a visitor’s center, and two new wings. A new Assisted Living building is now open on the Kutz Home campus, with 37 apartments and 17 memory care units.
I felt very comfortable when the time came for my mother to move to the Kutz Home. My family has a very long history of experience with the Kutz home providing quality care and I had no concerns when making this decision. The staff is not only professional, but respectful, responsible and caring as well. They attend to the needs of each individual resident as well as the needs and concerns of their family members.
