Both programs meet at Congregation Beth Israel located at 9001 Towne Center Drive and honor, respect and understand the aging process while providing a safe haven to older adults.

One program meets on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 2pm and offers a caring and friendly environment that stimulates people’s minds, spirits and bodies. Exercise, lectures, musical performances, life celebrations, games and a delicious kosher lunch is served daily. Participants enjoy a day of fun laughter and friendship. This is the perfect program for people who want to enrich their lives, be around other people, belong to a community and enjoy life.

The Encore program, a program for active older adults, meets on Wednesdays. This program offers great opportunities for meeting new friends, discovering hidden talents, engaging in learning and adding a new meaning in life. Members’ interests and ideas shape the programs.

Geriatric Care Management

8804 Balboa Ave.
San Diego, CA 92123
(858) 637-3040

The Geriatric Care Managers at Jewish Family Service are professional experts when it comes to the aging process. Their compassion and knowledge will help you manage the growing and complex demands and responsibilities of caring for yourself or your loved one. With personalized short-term solutions and long-range plans, they can ensure your safety, independence, and a high quality of life.

Geriatric Care Managers visit with older adults to address any and all concerns and conduct a comprehensive needs assessment. Family members are encouraged to be a part of this process.

Issues addressed include: family issues, transportation, meal delivery and shopping, caregiver services, paperwork organization and bill paying, socialization, safety, medical and legal needs, medical appointments, home repair and maintenance, relocation and moving, helping adjust to a death, illness, retirement, or move.

The Geriatric Care Manager will work with the older adult and their family to develop a detailed plan of care, including recommendations and referrals.

Geriatric Care Managers act as advocates, consultants, and educators. Many older adults and families choose to have the services of a care manager ongoing in order to monitor, arrange, and provide for the above services.

Fees are based on a sliding scale. All Care Managers are bonded and insured.

For more information about the Jewish Family Service Geriatric Care Management program contact (858) 637 3040 or visit www.jfssd.org.
