Aging in Place Needs Assessment
Jewish Family Services of Western North Carolina (JFS)* is exploring ideas for an innovative Aging in Place project and invites your input. If you are age 50 or older, reside in Western North Carolina, and identify as Jewish, please complete this survey!
Aging in Place is the ability for individuals to live in their own homes and communities safely, independently and comfortably, as they age. Aging in place includes having care, support and services provided in people’s homes and communities.
Typically people need more supportive services as they age, and it can be challenging to find or select such services. In addition, to age well and thrive it is important for individuals to establish and maintain social connections, stay physically active, contribute their wisdom and skills and pursue their interests.
The responses to this survey will help determine whether there is sufficient interest to create a local membership-based program that will help its members stay connected with others, find appropriate service providers, access needed services, volunteer to assist others, and get other Aging in Place needs met. Note that individual responses will be confidential and results will only be reported as aggregate data.
