JVS understands how important it is for active senior adults and the frail elderly to age in-place. Our programs help seniors with memory disorders remain in familiar surroundings, instead of institutionalized care, to maintain their sense of independence, self-worth and fulfillment. Active seniors benefit from volunteer opportunities that keep them active and engaged.
