Imagine you are 82 years old, alone in the apartment where you have lived for 42 years, raised your family, and felt connected to the community. You wonder how much longer you can stay; the neighborhood has changed over the years and old friends and family members have moved away. But this is still your home. What would you do?
JF&CS has been addressing this question for the past seven years. Through innovative Aging Well at Home projects, JF&CS fosters resident and community involvement in activities and services that focus on increasing physical and mental activity, social connection, and neighbor-to-neighbor mutual support in addition to sharing knowledge about existing resources.
