The JewishCare - Caring for older people living at home brochure summarises the programs provided by JewishCare for older people and their families.

JewishCare provides the widest range of services that help older people to live active and independent lives. This may include access to JewishCare's Mental Health, Disability, Domestic Violence or other relevant programs.

JewishCare has a number of ways that it can provide material and financial assistance for members of the community in a crisis.



Aged Casework

The needs of older people are often more complex than they may at first appear and sometimes it is useful to talk things over with a professional. JewishCare has a team of qualified and experienced caseworkers who are available to work with ageing people and their families, including carers who look after elderley family members. These professionals can complete a comprehensive assessment and devise a care plan best suited to individual needs in order to maximise the client’s quality of life and enable them to remain living in their own home for as long as possible.

Caseworkers can also provide advocacy services as well as assisting clients to access assistive devices and adapt their physical environment to help improve their quality of life and in home safety.

The program aims to enable older members of the community to live as independently as possible. To do this JewishCare works closely with other organisations including:


Alzheimer’s Australia: http://www.alzheimers.org.au

EnableNSW http://www.enable.health.nsw.gov.au

Independent Living Centre NSW http://www.ilcnsw.asn.au
