Jewish Family Service provides Counseling, Care Management and Education for Summit County residents, age 45 and over and the adults who care for them. These services are not a luxury or value added service. For our clients, we are meeting a basic need without which many would end up in severe circumstances such as institutionalization or homelessness. Many of the seniors receiving our services are low income, mentally ill, physically or developmentally disabled, or poorly educated. Many also lack community support such as friends or family. The lack of services endangers their quality of life and ability to keep their housing. Seniors with limited incomes face additionally difficult obstacles in maintaining their housing, their standard of living, and their quality of life. Many may be forced to choose between buying food or medicine, and maintaining their health.
