Westport JFS offers at home counseling for seniors

WESTPORT – Jewish Family Service of Westport, Weston, Wilton and Norwalk (JFS) is now providing a therapeutic, counseling program to serve older adults in their homes. The program is geared for seniors who may be homebound or simply prefer the comfort of their own surroundings and are seeking emotional support. A skilled social worker from JFS will help these seniors explore a variety of issues —such as the adjustments to living independently, improving social interaction, separation from family members and emotional issues. This therapeutic service may be billed and qualify for Medicare reimbursement.
The JFS At Home Counseling for Seniors Program can complement JFS Home Companion — a training and referral service that provides affordable, dependable caregivers for families needing help for one of their members.
