 "Since (my husband) has joined the Elder Club,
  when he comes home he has conversations with me,
  he takes an interest in food and helping me prep meals,
  and his overall morale is so much better...he no longer
  just sits in his chair and sleeps."

"I originally contacted JFS because I needed help coping with issues regarding aging.
(The JFS) therapist has been extremely helpful to me in my life, whether it be about
the original issues I brought to the therapeutic table, or more immediate ones. I always
look forward to our sessions. These are all good people, and I amthankful that JFS is
providing such important mental health services to our community."
