Homemaker

Part of our mission is to assist people to remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible. Since 1975, the JFS Homemaker provides housekeeping and transportation on sliding-fee scale basis.

Our highly trained and experienced homemaker staff is sensitive to their client’s needs. Each client is paired with a specific homemaker staff member, guaranteeing continuity of care and peace of mind. The assured quality of the Homemaker program is reached through continuous supervision and ongoing training.

Homemakers visit clients either once per week or twice monthly for a period of 2.25 hours. Visits are set for a regular time each week. Services provided include:

  • Cleaning the kitchen
  • Cleaning the bathroom
  • Mopping
  • Dusting
  • Transportation for errands
  • Grocery shopping
  • Meal preparation

The program cost is on a sliding-fee scale, based on income. There are no age restrictions on this service.
