Senior Adult Services

Our senior adult services empower seniors in Central Iowa to maintain their independence with a dignified quality of life in their own home for as long as possible. If you or a loved one needs help accessing local resources and services that can help seniors live independently, we are here for you.

“My elderly mother is living independently in her own home. I live on the east coast so when Mom says something that concerns me what can I do? Jody at Jewish Family Services is my eyes. She stops by and visits mom and checks out my concern(s) and is on the lookout for any other possible issues. Jody has also been a knowledgeable resource and connector for services we have needed to utilize. Thank you Jody and Jewish Family Services.”
— Sara Rosenberg
