At JFCS we offer seniors a wide variety of services. We received a grant last year from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to pilot Cooking Companions, a program that sets up volunteers to share a meal with home-bound seniors. We will be continuing this initiative after the conclusion of the grant due to its resounding success. One of our senior care managers recently received the following email (with emojis) from one of the participating seniors:
Hope you and all the family are well and once again I wish you the happiest of New Years. May all your wishes be realized.
Thank you again for always being there for me. I truly appreciate what an amazing person you are
To follow up on my cooking companion, Ellen is delightful. I saw her again this past Monday. We had lunch together and she visited for two hours. I enjoy our time together; we really have hit it off ! We laughed and shared interesting conversation. Once again, all your doing!
Thank you again for the gift cards. They are a G-D send and I am so grateful.
Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Take care 😇
