At JFS, we envision a community in which older adults are valued for the wisdom and experience they possess, and for the contributions they have made and continue to make. We are proud to offer programs and services that encourage active older adults to engage in intrinsically meaningful activities; that support adult children of aging parents; and that enable those older adults challenged by disability, illness or declining health to live in comfort and dignity. We offer:
Our geriatric care managers assist low-income older adults with health and mental health care navigation, benefits assistance, housing advocacy, social supports (including volunteer companion services), and basic needs assistance.
With support from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc., Holocaust survivors can receive care management services in addition to emergency financial assistance and limited in-home care.
JFS is proud to refer older adults who would like culturally appropriate in-home care to Kline Galland’s well-established home care services.
JFS collaborates with a wide variety of community organizations who provide a multitude of services for aging adults and/or their families. Our staff can help you navigate the complex system of long-term care, community resources and medical benefits.
Family Caregiver Support Program
Our Family Caregiver Support Program (FCSP) supports unpaid family and community caregivers of all backgrounds in King County with TCARE, an evidence-based tool designed to reduce caregiver stress. We work with caregivers to create individualized care plans that can include information and referral, classes, support groups, caregiver counseling, family consultations, limited respite care and financial assistance.
Russian Language Services
JFS serves Russian speaking older adults and adults with disabilities throughout King County. Our Russian speaking staff provide information and assistance, as well as more in depth care management services.
