Senior Care Services

Contact Bonnie Jaffe, RN Care Manager (651) 497-8248.

Senior Care Services offer three unique sets of service: care planning, care coordination, and caregiver coaching. All services are culturally-sensitive. Russian-speaking staff is available. These three sets of service are available on a sliding fee scale based on household income.

JFS professional staff includes nurses, social workers, and mental health practitioners. They will work closely with seniors and their families to ensure safe, supported, and independent living at home and provide resources, education, and respite for caregivers.

Care Planning

Care Planning helps families notice changes in parents and/or spouses. During a crisis or before one arises, Senior Care Planning helps families articulate issues and challenges, learn about available resources, create a plan for maximizing independence, and more.

  • Learn to recognize changes in the senior
  • Create a care plan that keeps the senior safe and independent and includes support for family caregivers

Care Coordination

Clients can choose to work with care coordinators who become the primary coordinators for the delivery of multiple services. Care Coordination is tailored to your unique situation and may include some of the following:

  • Accompanying to medical appointments
  • Follow the senior through hospital, nursing home, and transitional care unit (TCU) stays.
  • Providing reports to family members
  • Coaching and education for caregivers

Caregiver Coaching

Our caregiver coaches work with family members to guide them in making changes to improve everyday life at home; whether by promoting better self-care or by offering tips to deal with diagnosis-related behaviors. We can also work directly with people in the early stage of their disease to plan for their own future.

Caregiver Coaching includes but is not limited to:

  • Partner to develop an action plan based on individual or family needs, values, and goals
  • Provide disease education and referral to community resources
