History of Tamarisk RI Assisted Living
Jewish Collaborative Services of Rhode Island (JCS), a multi-faceted agency providing a variety of services to individuals and families, is the sponsoring organization of The Phyllis Siperstein Tamarisk Assisted Living Residence. The Tamarisk tree has long been a symbol of hospitality dating back to biblical times in the land of Israel. Consistent with its quest to enrich the quality of life for older adults and their families, Jewish Seniors Agency of Rhode Island, now JCS, chose Tamarisk as the name of its unique assisted living residence. It is in the spirit of this desert tree that Tamarisk is a symbol of Hospitality, making all who come here feel welcomed, comforted and protected.
