Hooverwood, The Indianapolis Jewish Home, Inc.

Originally established as the Jewish Shelter House in 1902 and later the Borinstein Home in 1929, Hooverwood has been offering care and services to the elderly in our community for more than a century.

Hooverwood was established at its present location in 1970, and has grown to become a well-recognized and respected skilled nursing facility, specializing in rehabilitation and dementia care.

Our rich history, traditions, community involvement, and commitment to person-centered care truly make Hooverwood a nurturing place to live and work.

We’re excited to give you a sneak peak of our home as it changes with the times and ushers in a new generation. The new renovations allow for prolonged independence and bring much desired privacy and modern amenities to the residents who call Hooverwood home.


These changes and renovations have been made possible through tireless fundraising and generous donations from the community. (Feel free to read more about Hooverwood’s Capital Campaign here). While the buildings and the grounds may change, we embrace our history and the long-standing tradition of service and care that makes Hooverwood such a special place. As an agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis, Hooverwood upholds the values and traditions of Judaism while we continue to welcome staff and residents from all backgrounds and faiths as we have since the doors first opened.

Hooverwood is more than a place to work. It’s a community, a home, and a family for our staff. Many have been here for decades and believe their role as caregivers is more than their job – it’s their calling. We are proud to recognize a group of 20 dedicated professionals who have been part of the Hooverwood family for 20 years or more.
We look forward to 2017 and the exciting changes that are to come.
