Jewish Child and Family Older Adult Services (OAS) is here to support, empower and advocate for you!
Jewish Child and Family Older Adult Services (OAS) offers specialized services to the Jewish elderly. They are designed to support, empower and advocate for older adults so they may continue to live independently in the community at an optimal level of psychological, social and physical functioning.
Every senior is unique and requires different services to enable them to continue to live a meaningful life out in the community. When an older person or their loved ones feel that they need some help to continue to function independently, a JCFS social worker meets with them to assess what services are required to empower and support them. Seniors can choose to involve their spouse and/or adult children in this process.
After meeting with the older adult to assess their needs, the JCFS social worker, in collaboration with the client and family, will develop an individual case plan. The worker will continue to provide support on an ongoing basis to ensure the goals are being met and appropriate supports are in place.
