Boca Raton-based JFS at Home, a non-profit private home care agency affiliated with Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services (JFS), recently partnered with Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce to hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its offices in west Boca Raton.

Operating as an independent entity, JFS at Home has been providing quality care at home for the elderly since its soft opening this past May. The Agency’s mission is to “promote healthy aging by enabling clients to maintain their quality of life while they continue to live at home, safely and with dignity.”  The Agency is accomplishing this by providing trusted, compassionate, Companions, Home Health Aides and Certified Nursing Assistants to clients residing primarily in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Highland Beach. These professionals are available around the clock to offer quality care and assistance to promote wellness and independence.

Aging in place, the familiarity and security of living in one’s own home, offers much comfort, which is why most seniors want to remain residing at home as long as possible.  “When a loved one is challenged with health issues, additional assistance and care may be required,” stated Danielle Hartman, JFS President & CEO.  “JFS at Home is committed to providing exceptional care and offer affordable options in home health care to its clients. While it’s often emotionally difficult to make decisions about how to best care for a loved one, there comes a time when the next step must be taken. JFS at Home provides families a sense of comfort knowing that their loved ones are cared for at home safely.”

“In 2015 the JFS Board of Directors approved a strategic plan which included planning for the future needs of seniors in our community.  As a result, the JFS Board approved the creation of a separate yet affiliated home care agency, JFS at Home.  As the Treasurer of the JFS Board of Directors and the President of the JFS at Home Board of Directors, I am very excited to be a part of the launch of this new endeavor,” said David Schimel.

Since opening in May, JFS at Home currently services 75 clients and is on track to reach their goal of becoming a $1M entity by the end of 2017.

JFS at Home is seeking additional client focused and professionally experienced Companions, Home Health Aides and Certified Nursing Assistants to add to their team.
