Federation Agencies Recognize ‘Older Americans Month’

May 1, 2013 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

Celebrating Our Senior Class in Mind, Body and Spirit

Last year, the Jewish communal agencies that serve older adults – Jewish Senior Life (JSL), Jewish Family Service (JFS), JVS and the Jewish Community Center, with support from the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit – launched a collaborative effort to serve older adults efficiently and easily.

Meeting the Boom

While each agency functions independently to serve the needs of older adults in specific ways, the organizations agreed that it was imperative to come together in response to the unprecedented needs of the community’s growing population of vibrant seniors.

“Older adults today are independent, dynamic and working, playing and thriving well into their later years,” says Carol Rosenberg, Director, Jewish Senior Life Foundation. “We are serving the Greatest Generation and the Baby Boomers, redefining what aging looks and feels like. The services we and our sister agencies must provide are changing and adapting to meet their needs.”
