JFS’s commitment to quality Home Support means that:

  • Our Home Support staff members are screened, police-checked, supervised and provided with ongoing staff development. We hire only those with the training, experience, and personality required.
  • We believe that home support should be tailored to each individual, including one’s physical, social, emotional, language and cultural needs.

  • We are committed to respecting and supporting Jewish values and culture.
  • We provide ongoing training to our Home Support staff to ensure that they have the right knowledge to support our diverse clients. We provide training about the LGBTQ2S+ community, the impact of trauma and identifying trauma in working with Holocaust survivors, occupational health & safety, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) training.
