Here’s to Life

There are a lot of moving parts to running Jewish Senior Life of Metropolitan Detroit (JSL), and fortunately, for the community, the engine running the agency is Nancy Heinrich, Chief Executive Officer. Walking through the $9 million renovation at the Harriet & Ben Teitel Apartments, located on the A. Alfred Taubman Jewish Community Campus in Oak Park – one of seven residential apartment communities in the JSL family, Nancy notes, “There are 850 residents in our care, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They are our family, our community. They have placed their trust in our work and they have placed their lives in our hands and yes, it’s weighty. But the responsibility is also so rewarding. I think the hardest thing for anyone in my seat is the fact that you want every single person in your care to be happy – every single day. And you know that just isn't possible.
