We’re here to help seniors stay independent! Maintaining our independence, and being able to remain in our own homes, are often major concerns as we grow older. The things we need to do — routine trips to the grocery or finding transportation to a medical appointment — are no longer so easy if we don’t drive any more. That’s where Staying Connected comes in. We’re a nonprofit interfaith program at JFS in York, Pa., that can help you, or your aging parents, continue to accomplish the everyday tasks of life. For those 60 and older, our volunteers offer:
- Transportation for medical appointments
- Grocery shopping
- Friendly visiting
- Telephone reassurance
- Social service referrals
As part of the National Volunteer Caregiving Network, our services are available to all, regardless of religious affiliation. They’re provided by caring volunteers from six York County congregations, and others who support our mission.
Finding transportation can be difficult. It may be hard to ask for help and sometimes, family and friends are facing their own challenges, or have moved away or died. But there are alternatives.
