Jewish Family Services at The Reuben Center (JFS) offers a range of services and resources to support and assist individuals aged 60 and above and their families as they adapt to the aging process. These available services are designed to enable seniors to continue living independently at home, addressing the current trend and desire for older adults to age in place.
Each situation is addressed in a professional and confidential manner and with respect for the individuality and independence of each person. Whenever possible, both the client and family are involved in deciding upon the best care options.
Although services are provided by Jewish agencies dedicated to the needs of the Jewish elderly, all services are available to persons of any religion, race, nationality, ethnic group and income level. Contact us today at (317) 259-6822.
