Senior Programs in Greater Phoenix

An Active Lifestyle Promotes a Healthy Mind & Body

Jewish Family & Children’s Service provides emotional and social support to senior members of our community through counseling and community activities.

We have created a number of programs that provide older adults access to activities that help them retain independence and promote healthy living in both mind and body.

In-Home Services

We provide comprehensive in-home support such as counseling, case management, advocacy and referrals to appropriate resources. These services are designed to improve emotional health and develop community connections. This is an ideal program for seniors who have a difficult time leaving the home and need more social interaction. Our goal is to enhance independence and improve quality of life.

We also provide Older Adult Behavioral Health Services for those over the age of 55 who are enrolled in AHCCCS or Arizona Long Term Care.
