Jewish Family & Child Service, Making a Difference!
Lifeline is designed to meet the needs of seniors and people with disabilities who wish to live as independently as possible in their home.
We offer a variety of services for individuals and their families:
Assessments are completed by our experienced and professional staff in your home, at a care facility or in the office to identify the issues that are most important to you and your family member. These may include social supports, family history, geriatric issues, activities of daily living, safety concerns, mental health issues and anything that may influence the security of a senior’s current living situation.
Homemaker Services provide seniors and people with disabilities assistance in performing daily tasks including: housekeeping, errands and shopping, meal preparation and menu planning, transportation, companionship and bill paying.
JFCS Consultation involves providing information to individuals and families about resources, the processes involved in accessing these resources and any information they may need to make decisions about their elder family member’s circumstances. In addition, JFCS staff can discuss specific information with extended family members or professionals who are working with the senior and his/her family.
Resources and Linkage
Since 1947 our staff has fostered relationships with other local agencies to ensure that our clients receive the most comprehensive and responsive services available.
JFCS counselors and Lifeline Services staff are skilled at providing support and assistance to the unique needs of individuals providing care for elders or loved ones who have disabilities at any age.
