HouseCalls: In-Home Social Work Services

Outside Care, Inside Your Home

The JFS HouseCalls program provides vital in-home social work and health care services for the frail and homebound elderly who are living in Jewish Community Housing Corporation senior housing.

A Comprehensive Approach

The JFS HouseCalls program is an interdisciplinary treatment team consisting of:

  • Geriatric nurse practitioner staff from Saint Barnabas Medical Center
  • Eldercare social work services from Jewish Family Service of MetroWest
  • Resident management staff from Jewish Community Housing Corporation
  • Senior adult program staff from JCC MetroWest

Encompassing the Wellness Spectrum

HouseCalls services encompass the “wellness spectrum” and include the provision of in-home JFS eldercare social work services, Saint Barnabas Medical Center geriatric nurse practitioner services, case management, health education, health screenings and referrals to medical transportation, home health aide and other support services.

Coordinating with Your Physician

The HouseCalls staff team works collaboratively with the client’s primary care physician, giving and receiving input on the individual’s status and scheduling timely physician follow up appointments as necessary.

Free Educational Seminars

In addition to its in-home services, the HouseCalls program also promotes health awareness and wellness through free educational seminars held at the Jewish Community Housing Corporation senior residences.

Topics have included: memory improvement techniques, adjusting to the changes of aging, medication safety, skin cancer prevention and screening, safety and falls prevention, and mastering the medical maze.
