Why do your parents need Jewish Family Service?

As senior adults, your parents may need help continuing to do the things they have always done. Failing vision, the inability to drive, memory loss, or other concerns commonly associated with aging may make it difficult for them to maintain their day-to-day independent living.

 

Why do you, as an adult child, need Jewish Family Service?

Managing your elderly parents’ needs can be complicated and time consuming. You may feel responsible for their care. Hours each week are often spent getting aging parents to doctors’ appointments, filling out and understanding Medicare forms, finding quality home care, or making sure they are living safely at home.

 

But if you are out of town often, live far away, or simply overwhelmed with attending to your aging parents’ needs, you can have the peace of mind knowing the professional care managers with Your Experts in AgingTM are here.

 

Let us manage the complex needs of aging so you can spend enjoyable time with your parents.

 

What does Jewish Family Service provide?

A geriatric care manager will visit with your parents in their home and consult with their personal physician team to complete an assessment. This assessment focuses on their strengths and coping skills, as well as their ability to care for themselves physically, socially, financially and psychologically. Then, with you, we will develop a personalized plan including short-term solutions and long-range plans to ensure safety, independence and a continued high quality of life.

 

Jewish Family Service can:

• Complete an assessment in your parents' home to see firsthand what is needed to maximize their quality of life

 

• Screen, arrange, and monitor services for healthy meal preparation, home care assistants, and home cleaning services 

 

• Design, implement, and manage a comprehensive plan of care

 

• Suggest home modification, if needed, to decrease the risk of falling

 

• Coordinate medical services, appointments, and follow-up

 

• Help navigate the complex maze of bill management and insurance fillings

 

• Identify cost savings available through Medicare, Medicaid, Veteran Affairs, and public benefit programs 

 

• Arrange in-home or community socialization and enrichment opportunities

 

• Assist with coordinating, choosing, and arranging alternative living arrangements

 

• Provide Family Caregiver counseling, resources, and support

 

• Be your parents' advocate at doctor visits or hospital stays
