Home Care

Assistance with Daily Life

Life may be challenging sometimes, especially as you get older or have special needs.

If you're a caregiver, the responsibilities can be overwhelming. In times like this, we all need a little help. Fortunately, you have somewhere to turn.

JFS provides high-quality home care services and companion services delivered right to you or your loved one's doorstep. Our Home Care team is made up of professional nursing assistants and nurses (both RNs and LPNs), all screened and trained to ensure top quality care. As a testament to our dedicated service, we handle unique assignments, regardless of the complexities and challenges.

We work hard to build thoughtful, considerate relationships with both you and your loved one based on mutual trust, empathy and respect. Whether assistance is needed for as little as four hours per day, or as much as 24/7, we can give you the help you need.

As a licensed home care organization, JFS meets state and federal regulations for quality home care and adheres to the highest standards of excellence.

Our nursing assistants can help with:
• Bathing, dressing, grooming
• Meals and nutrition support
• Mobility and transfers
• Toileting
• Medication reminders
• Companionship and respite care

Additional services are also available from our Home Care team such as light housekeeping, laundry, scheduling appointments, running errands and even social outings.

Companion Services
Companion Services is your solution for person-centered care and non-medical assistance in the comfort of your own home or in the setting of your choice. Whether you are a full time caregiver who needs time out of the home to run errands or meet friends or you are concerned about someone in your life who is isolated and could use assistance and socialization, companion services can provide the individualized services you and your loved one desire.

From playing cards to making a meal to running an errand, companion services focuses on supporting the person and enriching their experience at home. Other times, a health situation makes day to day activities temporarily more challenging and companion services can help with filling the gaps.

Companions are also able to provide safety supervision for someone who may be at risk of falls or is showing signs of forgetfulness. Companion services can enhance a person's independence and support their health and wellbeing by providing nutritious meals, reducing isolations, and helping to maintain a safe home environment.
