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.
