Direct Services for Seniors

We provide seniors and their families with the information and resources needed to function independently with age.

To help during a crisis or for long-term planning, Jewish Family Service (JFS) staff conducts a thorough assessment of seniors and their available resources. Ongoing case management and support will be provided to individuals as needed. These direct services are meant to provide seniors with emotional, mental and physical support as well as a variety of information and resources.

We help you manage:
  • Independence and maintain autonomy
  • Aging in place
  • Information and referral
  • Holiday meal assistance
  • Budgeting

  • Learning about community and public resources

Financial Stability

JFS financial case managers help seniors assess their monthly financial resources and explore resources and benefits.

When seniors face decisions related to aging at home or moving to a facility, JFS case managers provide general information and recommendations about local choices.
