Aging Services

JFS Rochester understands the unique needs and challenges faced by older adults, and we are committed to providing high-quality aging services that meet those needs. We work alongside JFS clients and their families to develop a plan of care that ensures opportunities for self-sufficiency, support, and dignity through healthcare, mental health, nursing, transportation, and safety supports.

About Our Programs

Our comprehensive care management program is designed to provide older adults with the support and resources they need to age in the place of their choosing and maintain their independence.

Our experienced care managers work with older adults and their families to develop personalized care plans that address their physical, emotional, and social needs.

JFS Rochester’s support groups for caregivers provide a safe space for individuals to share their experiences and offer support and encouragement to one another. We also provide access to a range of essential services and emergency supports, that help older adults maintain their quality of life.  We understand that aging may bring with it strong feelings of grief, loss, and anxiety, and our mental health counselors are prepared to help older adults face these feelings and move forward to a place of peace and resolve.
