JFS Offers Homemaker Services at Reduced Rates

Could you or someone you love benefit from homemaker services? Jewish Family Service (JFS) has openings for individuals in need of assistance to receive housekeeping services on a sliding-fee scale, based on income. Rates start as low as $13 per hour. The program is open to older adults, age 60 and above, and adults under 60 who have physical disabilities.

JFS provides qualified homemakers who visit care recipients weekly or every other week, depending on need. They check in, provide light housekeeping, do laundry, change linens, shop, cook, and run limited errands. JFS homemakers are professional, responsible, considerate, and carefully screened.

“JFS homemaker services help give older adults the extra help they need to stay in their homes, living safely and independently while reducing isolation,” says Chandra Matthews, director of the Jay and Rose Phillips Senior Solutions Center at JFS. “We normally have a waiting list for homemaker services but are fortunate to now have openings for new clients who can benefit from the extra help but may not have the means to afford the full fee.”

For more information, contact JFS’s central intake specialist at 720.248.4701, or hnusz@jewishfamilyservice.org.
