JFS Launches Silver J Ticket

Are you a senior adult who needs some extra help with personal activities around the house? Can you use a ride to special events, like high holidays services? Or do you have a loved one who could benefit from assistance at home?
Then consider the “Silver J Ticket” through Jewish Family Service (JFS) — à la carte services that further JFS’s goal of meeting the needs of both senior adults and the adults who care for them.

In partnership with Menorah Park Home Health Services,  JFS now offers home health services at a reduced rate. The personal care duties performed by a home health aide could include: caring for a client’s hair, teeth; bathing; overseeing a client’s nutritional needs are met by meal preparation; changing bed linens; helping the client in and out of bed; exercises and/or walking; administering medications; and laundry services.

A JFS social worker will come to a client’s home to perform a personal needs assessment, which will direct Menorah Park staff to provide the types of help needed. For one three-hour visit, the cost for a single client is just $28.50 and for a couple/ two clients in one home, the cost is $38.25. Those who reside in Summit County are eligible for these services.
 

JFS will also offer free transportation for seniors in need to select events, like high holidays services at the three temples.  To purchase Silver J Ticket home health services or to request transportation for high holidays services, please contact JFS directly at 330-867-3388. JFS also plans to offer a light home maintenance option to the Silver J Ticket in the near future.
