Sometimes it takes a little extra help to maintain independence. Help with meals or handyman services, personal care, transportation, or even medical or legal issues. Jewish Senior Outreach provides that help. We empower seniors in Omaha to stay vital and active in their homes for as long as possible by providing options when independent living becomes more challenging.
We help improve quality of life through proper nutrition, implementing safety precautions, home care referrals and financial assistance, if needed. Individuals and their families count on our Outreach social workers as trusted partners.
Community members vary from those in good health needing minimum services to those in later stages of illness that require quite a bit of attention. Many have no family available to assist with managing their care.
The JSO social worker meets with family to gather information and establish a relationship. We provide an in-home assessment to make sure the living environment is safe. We also assess the need for home-delivered kosher meals and possible referrals for in-home care.
In some cases, the interventions are short term and long-lasting. Other situations call for regular home visits, telephone check-ins, daily hot Kosher Meals on Wheels delivery, Lifeline in-home alert services and long-term case management. If needed, we arrange for medical attention and transportation to appointments.
