Federation helps older adults thrive

The Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey makes an impact on older adults! We strive to keep older adults engaged in the community with social, recreational, and cultural programming infused with Jewish heritage and values. Our support services enable older adults who need assistance to age in place with dignity and respect.

One of our exceptional programs is Aleph Home Care—a homecare agency that provides personal care, companion care, transitional care nursing, and transportation. Aleph provides a high-quality, safe environment that allows you or your loved one to stay in the home. Aleph’s team of nurses creates and implements a personalized plan of care for all of their clients. Just this past year, Aleph experienced an incredible growth spurt, providing 60 percent more service hours to clients than the year before!

But that is not all that the Jewish Federation family does for the older adults in our community. More than 3,600 older adults received assistance from JFCS to help them age in place and 20,000 meals were served through the JCC’s daily lunch program. And through a collaboration between the JCC, JFCS, JCF, and JSHHS, 200 older adults now know how to use technology for new methods of transportation through the S-Uber program—a transportation similar to Uber, but for seniors.

Older Adult programming is available through the Jewish Federation family of agencies, impacting lives, and enriching the mind, body, and soul.
