JFS provides personalized, professional home support to seniors in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. Our qualified Home Support staff provide a comprehensive range of services to maximize independence. JFS Home Support Coordinators are all trained professional social workers and bring more than 25 years experience in geriatrics.

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 hire only staff for our clients that we would hire for our own family.
  • We believe that home support should be tailored to each individual, including one’s physical, social, emotional, language and cultural needs.
  • We believe it important to maintain an ongoing relationship with each client to best respond to evolving or changing needs. Our social workers visit regularly, and maintain contact by telephone.
