JFS offers a variety of services for the seniors in our community
JFS provides a variety of services for senior adults to help individuals enjoy better nutrition, stay connected to the community, and live comfortably at home as long as possible.
KMOW: Kosher Meals on Wheels
The Kosher Meals on Wheels (KMOW) program delivers kosher meals to homebound seniors who, due to physical or cognitive impairments, are unable to cook and/or shop for themselves. Volunteers deliver meals throughout Middlesex County, ensuring that seniors not only enjoy proper nutrition but also have someone checking in on them and monitoring their wellness over time. In many cases, KMOW meal recipients are isolated and volunteers are the only contact they have throughout the day.
