Klein Older Adult Services

When it comes to aging, no two people are affected in the same way.

That applies both to the older adult and those around him or her – a spouse, an adult child or a caregiver. At JFCS, we understand and offer an array of services designed to support both older adults (age 60 and older) and their caregivers to maintain the highest possible quality of life. We are dedicated to ensuring seniors live a safe, active, and healthy life by maintaining their independence throughout the aging process.

Our licensed clinical social workers, geriatric care managers, and other staff members in the Klein Older Adult Services division are there to assure that health, social, personal, transportation, housing and safety needs are met. We understand that every situation is unique and work with our clients and families to create individualized care plans that maximize independence, safety, and well-being.

  • Assessment: There are many factors to consider our specialist in aging will conduct a comprehensive evaluation which guides the planning process so that you can make informed decisions about care.
  • Case Management: We often see clients who are juggling career, family needs, and caregiving at the same time, while others live too far from their parents or aging loved ones to help them meet their daily needs. We know that when clients have trouble understanding how to help the elders they care about, it is hard to make sense of the options. Our staff will assist you and your loved one in finding resources, making decisions, and managing stress

Testimonials

Image
JFCS has been an amazing resource for my family in navigating the caregiving challenge. We had no idea where to begin and they have led us through the entire process with tremendous compassion and knowledge. Caregiving is a fluid situation and everyone at JFCS has been very responsive to our changing needs. The people who do the hands-on caregiving in the home are well trained, professional and understanding of the challenges faced by aging adults. Everyone on the staff has provided excellent advice and support for our family as well as my grandmother throughout the entire process. They are always available to provide assistance and solutions for whatever new issue crops up. I feel certain my grandmother would not have been able to stay at home if it had not been for JFCS.
