Senior Services

As people age, it is important for them to maintain their value and independence.

Jewish Family Service Houston (JFS) understands how needs change as we age and strives to provide an inclusive and supportive environment to help meet the needs of seniors in our local Jewish and Greater Houston Community.

Using the Protective Factors for Maintaining Independence (PFMI) as the evaluation system to assess a senior's situation, we offer services and solutions to help seniors and their families work together to achieve this goal in an inclusive and supportive environment.

Whether you or a loved one needs help, reaching out to us today will ensure we can provide you with services as quickly as possibly. Contact us at: (713) 667-9336 or cm@jfshouston.org

We provide:
  • Case management
  • Facilitation of family meetings
  • Safety assessments
  • Problem solving
  • Client safety, autonomy and confidentiality

We Provide Respectful Help

Senior Outreach

JFS serves seniors in many ways. Reaching out to reduce isolation, foster community connection and uplift seniors is an important aspect of our work. These activities positively impact our clients' lives.

Music and Spirit Program

Through beautiful music, seniors' spirits soar. Cantor Vadim Tunitsky provides personalized musical outreach to seniors through presentations, concerts, life-cycle events and religious services, as well as providing outreach to home-bound seniors or those recovering from an illness.

Senior Chavurot

The Senior Chavurot program provides activities for residents living in area senior-living facilities with an emphasis on Jewish-themed topics. Programs are lead by JFS volunteers who share various experiences and stories with the groups.
