Jewish Community Resource Navigator

Connecting Jewish older adults to compassionate care.

As we age, our needs change. When it becomes more difficult to prepare meals at home, drive to appointments, or participate in social engagements, it can be overwhelming to try and find help. We know that with the right resources and support system, older adults are better able to maintain their health, well-being, and independence.
