November is National Caregiver Month!

Jewish Family Services of WNC Offers Support to Family Caregivers!

Jewish Family Services of WNC (JFS) offers programs and services to support the needs of family members providing care or support for an

elder or for an individual with a disability. Family members often find themselves overwhelmed by their caregiving responsibilities, and all too

often may overlook needs for their own self-care and health. A caregiver’s need for respite time for themselves can be met by enrolling their

loved one in the JFS Elder Club. This program serves older adults of all faiths who would benefit from socialization, friendship, exercise,

stimulating activities, and a nutritious lunch, in an enjoyable, structured group setting. Professional staff and trained volunteers facilitate and

supervise the program. 

Elder Club is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Asheville, and on Wednesdays in Hendersonville.

Transportation may be arranged to each location. The Elder Club provides the caregiver with the peace of mind that their family member is safe

and well cared for. Caregiver support services at JFS also include: care coordination and guidance to services and community resources, provided

by a JFS Social Worker, and individual mental health counseling with a JFS Licensed Clinical Social Worker. JFS accepts most Medicare, BCBS-NC,

and other insurance. Inquire to confirm your individual health insurance coverage.

A sliding fee scale based on income is available for uninsured individuals.
