No Place Like Home

There is no place like home, and that’s why most clients want to remain living at home as long as possible. The familiarity and security of one’s own home offers much comfort, especially when challenged with health issues. Yet, as loved ones grow older, families are faced with meeting their day-to day needs and health care requirements. That’s why JFS at Home is committed to providing the very best non-medical home health care for clients in Palm Beach County.

JFS at Home provides trusted, caring and pre-screened home health aides and certified nursing assistants to our clients giving them and their family members the peace of mind they seek with the care and attention they require.

A Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) will be sent to your loved one wherever they live for an in person assessment to best understand their needs and level of independence with activities of daily living. We also want to get to know them on a more personal level to match them with their caregiver. ($100 fee for this assessment)

Assessment and requested schedule are shared with the JFS at Home team and we work together to identify the best caregiver to meet your unique needs.

4

A  Scheduling Coordinator will contact you to provide the name of your caregiver and to review the schedule with you.

It is sometimes hard to determine the level of care needed for you or your loved one and it can seem impossible at times with so many agencies out there. JFS at Home wants to make this an easy process for you and we will guide you along the way to choose the options that best fit your needs.

JFS @ Home has helped take care of my mother for over 7 years. They have been, “nothing short” of excellent. No matter what time of day, the staff and care givers, have responded quickly to our needs; professionally and with the utmost compassion. They have made the difficult task of caring for a loved one much easier. After “bouncing around” with different agencies we are so grateful to have found JFS @ Home.

We have been a client for years now and I have to say so far the aides have been kind and reliable with minor scheduling issues. Once you make it clear what’s required - you’re good to go. One of her aides , every year brings a cake and balloon for her birthday !

First, it was my mom in need of care, and that became 24/7, and months after she passed, my dad needed assistance at home, and the JFS Team have been doing that home care/assistance work, as and when needed (super flexible if hours need to be adjusted), with compassion, and always in a professional and attentive manner. JFS has made it possible for both of them to keep living in their familiar home surroundings, which is priceless.
