Direct Care Services

JFCS' services are always flexible, keeping in mind the needs of the individual and family and  can include weekly or bi-weekly visits by a social worker, who will work individually with a client, providing an array of services that will assist clients in their daily life .  Direct Care can include an array of functions that typically family members, friends or neighbors could provide, but are limited by time, their jobs or simply scheduling difficulties.  In addition, a family member, parent or caregiver might need a break from the on-going responsibilities of caring for a special needs individual. 

These services can include:

Accompanying individuals to needed appointments and social events, and home visits as needed
Driving to and from appointments and therapies
Assistance with bill paying and money management, meal planning and preparation, grocery shopping, taking medications regularly and renewing medications, good hygiene and healthy living
Companionship and socialization skills opportunities, respite care, errands, transportation to school and group activities as well as limited interaction with therapists and teachers
