Kosher Meals on Wheels provide sustenance for those age 60+ who are unable to afford, shop for, or prepare nutritious meals at home. The Federation is proud to support our family service partners’ Kosher Meals on Wheels programs enabling active adults to age with dignity and safety in their own homes.
Staying connected to others is increasingly recognized as essential to aging with health and vitality. Jewish Family & Children's Service in Monmouth and Jewish Family Services in Middlesex offer senior socialization programs with book groups, lunch & learns, theater trips, movement, movies, and more.
Accessing support to cope with life's inevitable losses is an empowering and positive step, no matter what type of loss one is dealing with or when the loss occured. Bereavement resources provide support in a respectful and accepting environment.
If you or someone you know is in need of kosher meals on wheels, bereavement support, in-home mental health care, addiction support, or help for a Holocaust survivor, our family services partners can help you take the right steps to get the help you need.
Of the 100,000 to 130,000 Holocaust survivors in the United States, nearly one quarter are age 85 or older, and one in four lives in poverty. As a group they are at risk for depression, social isolation, declining health and problems associated with institutionalization, which can trigger traumatic memories of wartime experiences.
Helping Holocaust survivors live in safety and dignity in their own homes is a priority for the Jewish community. For those survivors who struggle with the essentials of daily living, the Jewish Federation works with partners, Jewish Family Services of Middlesex County and Jewish Family & Children's Service of Monmouth County, along with The Claims Conference, to provide in-home assistance with such basics as derssing, bathing, meal preparation, grocery shopping, and light housekeeping.
