Older Adult Counseling

Counseling services for difficult timesOlderAdults_2_ContentQuote

Growing older can raise far-ranging concerns–from dealing with retirement to living on a reduced income, from intimacy issues to giving up one’s car. More profound events, such as losing a spouse or facing a frightening health diagnosis, can throw an individual into a tailspin. For day-to-day issues of aging and more challenging concerns, Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Philadelphia offers a range of counseling services.

  • Bereavement and loss
  • Changes in health
  • Aging
  • Retirement
  • Intimacy
  • Financial challenges
  • Reduce isolation
  • Changes in living arrangements
  • Trauma
  • Abuse and neglect
  • Elder abuse
  • Mental health challenges
  • Spiritual needs
  • Caregiving fatigue
  • Transportation barriers

We are in challenging and unprecedented times. As we all navigate this new way of living and working together, one thing that remains constant is that JFCs is here for our clients and we are here for each other.


We are watching closely what our City, State and Federal government is saying and doing and translating that into what that means for us as an organization.


We are exploring ways to reach members of our community using the core competencies that we all have to alleviate stress and anxiety. We are communicating with many similar agencies across the country to learn more and better understand policies put forth from our Governor and the Federal government.


Many in the community want to help our clients and want to know what plans we have put in place to reach the most vulnerable.


You can be reassured we remain committed to providing the best care we can offer to all of our clients during these challenging times.


We continue to closely follow the community needs of the community we serve and how we address these ever changing needs.


JFCS is here for you and we will get through this together. Stay safe.
