JFS geriatric care managers have the knowledge and skills to make sure elders in our community can age safely and comfortably in their own homes or apartments. We provide peace of mind to care-giving family and friends who live near-by or at a distance and cannot personally monitor the well-being of their relative in Rochester
Our Geriatric Care Managers provide in-home assessments, create individualized care plans and provide assistance arranging and monitoring services for direct care such as home care, chores, meals, respite care, and transportation. Through our short-term solutions and long-range care plans, we help elders maximize their independence and quality of life.
Whether utilizing JFS Express to provide transportation to medical or other appointments, or treating depression with our in-home counseling program, JFS care managers make sure our elders are receiving vital services that help them maintain independence and maximize self-determination.
Senior Care Solutions
Our Geriatric Care Managers work with clients and their local or out-of town caregivers to provide solutions and services that help our elderly loved ones to live in the best home for them–their own. If higher levels of care become necessary, Senior Care Solution provides services and support for relocation and a smooth transition.
