At the ages of 83 and 84, Rose and Sam Leff began to feel isolated in their two-bedroom Woodland Hills apartment. "We had given up driving, so there really wasn't too much for us to do," Rose said. The Leffs decided to move to a residential care facility at the Jewish Home for the Aging, which provides kosher meals, housekeeping services, transportation, social and recreational activities and a medical clinic on-site. While they agree it was difficult adjusting to living in one room ("If we have a fight, I'm out in the hall," Sam joked), four years later, they have no regrets about their decision.
