JFS offers new services for older adults

Jewish Family Service of MetroWest, New Jersey’s Older Adult Case Management, is a free program that focuses on the unique needs of each person as it helps older adults adjust to life changes and plan for their future. This new program is made possible by a gift from Carrie and Jed Nussbaum.

“Having been involved with JFS for more than 10 years, Jed and I know how much JFS relies on funding to expand their program offerings,” Ms. Nussbaum said. “We feel so fortunate to be able to underwrite the new older adult case management service for our community as our aging seniors need the care and compassion that JFS is known for.”

The program’s goal is to allow older adults to stay in their own homes for as long as possible through the use of community supports, both professional and volunteer.
