Caregiving can be a challenging and demanding role, but it is also an opportunity to provide compassion and support to a loved one. Programs like those offered by JFS can provide critical support for caregivers, helping to reduce stress, provide safe and appropriate care, alleviate ongoing or emergency financial burden, and provide a sense of community. Caregivers in Rochester should explore the resources available to them and know that they are not alone in this journey. With the right support, caregivers can find the strength and resilience to provide the best care for their loved one and take care of themselves.
JFS is one of the leading providers of quality aging programs that also address caregiver needs. JFS provides care management and support services for older adults and their caregivers that address the needs of the whole family. JFS Rochester’s respite care provides funding that allows temporary relief for caregivers. Our counseling and therapy services are available to anyone who needs them, regardless of their religious beliefs. We also run caregiver and bereavement support groups.
