Homecare services are a necessary component in a continuum of services and programs needed to sustain the ability of older adults to live with dignity in their own homes and communities.  While JFS discontinued its own Homecare program in 2008, we have continued to provide homecare subsidies to low-income seniors for services essential to their ability to remain at home and avoid higher levels of care.

Mr. and Mrs. S are in their late 80’s and have been married over 60 years. Mrs. S has dementia and Mr. S is a caregiver for her. However, he also has health problems that make caregiving difficult. Without a car, they are both homebound.  Homecare helps provide personal care to Mrs. S so she can remain in the home, preventing their separation or move to a long-term care facility.  Along with providing personal care for Mrs. S, the homecare service also takes them to the grocery store, doctor appointments, etc.  They also help Mr. S with meal preparation and light housekeeping.
