Senior Adult Services

It’s normal to feel stressed or alone during a crisis. Anxiety and depression may worsen. For those affected by dementia, the pandemic has been especially grim, and the Covid-19 crisis has made it much more difficult for family and caregivers to provide care...

Please take a few moments to watch JFS's Gleeful Choir in action and learn what JFS is doing for seniors during the pandemic.

Will you help

Since March, JFS has doubled the frequency of virtual caregiver support groups to meet increased demand. JFS has kept the Gleeful Choir singing virtually to provide community and joy for people with dementia and their caregivers. JFS has provided 1,500 hours of services to older adults and their families, including continuing to offer the Lunch Bunch groups virtually to keep seniors feeling connected. Although the experiences are now virtual, the core tenets of the services remain - support and community for our seniors.

Your donation makes all the difference

A generous group of friends has stepped up to offer a $100,000 challenge match to help JFS serve Utahns in need in this time of crisis. Any gift received now through October 31 will be DOUBLED, which makes it possible for those who cannot afford, or easily access services, to receive urgently needed help.
We cannot do this without you. Together we are part of a community of loving and caring people.

How You Can Help

  • $750 provides a caregiver with respite help that allows much needed breaks from full time care for a loved one.
  • $150 funds a comprehensive assessment and care plan for an older adult to live independently, or to make a plan if they cannot.
  • $50 brings music to a person with Alzheimer’s via JFS’s Music and Memory program, connecting them to the world with beloved music.

Your donations make all the difference. Please support JFS as we help others with food, financial assistance, caregiver support, and counseling.
