Caregiversprovide volunteers who are trained to assist closely in the care of elder loved ones - when the child who would be responsible lives far away. Our Volunteers come from local synagogues, Jewish Federation groups, Hebrew day schools, Hadassah, Sisterhoods and Men's Clubs. Care can be as simple as helping someone light Shabbat candles, helping them complete a medical history form, driving them to a Lab or Doctor's appointment - and other simple, every-day tasks. Emergency aid is also available, as is yard maintenance, light housekeeping, Kosher Meals on Wheels, and daily telephone visits. There is a charge for some of these services. The important thought is that, whether a close relative is nearby or far away, the elderly recipient enjoys friendly independence in their own home...yet is never alone and always receives personalized care.
