Senior Adult Services

JFS offers a range of services designed to enhance the quality of life and facilitate independence of older adults.


As a person ages, it is important to have support. Significant changes can have a major impact on attitude, energy levels and mental health. These changes and life adjustments can include retirement, a move to a new setting, changes in one’s own health, and death of a loved one.

Counseling with a skilled clinician who specializes in issues relevant to older adults can help individuals identify, understand and work through their emotional responses to major life transitions.


JFS is fostering a culture of wellness through social, supportive, and health-related programs at The Ohav Sholom Apartments. We offer a range of programs including monthly social gatherings to celebrate residents’ birthdays, Food and Flicks (bringing in a current movie and lunch), blood pressure screening, chair yoga and more.
