“My JewishCare support workers help me so much. They helped me to get my current flat that I really like and they help me to keep it tidy. They also help me with the shopping, getting to doctors appointments, with sewing and getting to bowling. We are also now working on improving my computer skills. I can’t imagine my life without JewishCare”.
“I don’t know what we would do without JewishCare. They are so caring and efficient as well as being flexible.”

“As our needs have increased so has JewishCare’s help. Without JewishCare’s wonderful caring staff we would be in a home for the aged for sure.”
