What Our Clients Say

  • I am incredibly thankful for the support I have received from JewishCare over the past 8 years.

    My Care Manager, Irina Stepanova, has helped me with everything I need. No matter the time, and no matter the issue I am facing.

    My support workers have helped me with shopping, transport, and cooking, all of which I can no longer do on my own.

    Maria Agaroskina

  • I wanted to say how much I appreciate the respite service I receive and how important it is to our lives.

    Without JewishCare’s help in caring for my husband Ivan, I could not go to work or attend medical appointments each week.

    It’s also a great social time for Ivan, particularly when he is able to attend the Synagogue with his carer.

    Jeskara Gordon

  • After having several falls, my family decided it would be prudent of me to have a personal alarm system in case of an emergency as I live alone and I am 83 years old. I have had multiple joint replacements and my balance is wanting. I did not know where to start and found that the information on several of the appropriate websites did not facilitate a decision.

    I rang JewishCare and was connected to Rolene Nehama, your occupational therapist. She very kindly gave me her time and knowledge, and even introduced me by referral to arrange a fall and personal alarm watch which was exactly what I needed. Thank you JewishCare.

    Beverley

  • On behalf of my mother, I would like to thank you for all the assistance Jewish Care provides.

    Your organisation gave me a hand at a very difficult time for me.

    Our very small family greatly appreciated what JewishCare has done and is doing for Mum.

    She was a child of the Holocaust. She was only 7 years old but remembers so clearly what was going on at that time.  Even now, while she is suffering from mild Dementia, she sometimes talks about it.

    Thank you all for the great job and assistance you provide.

    Rada

  • I don’t know what we would do without JewishCare. They are so caring and efficient as well as being flexible.

    Stella Wolfgang’s daughter Maryla

  • JewishCare sent a lovely occupational therapist who has made my house safe. Weekly visits from JewishCare’s home support staff enable me to stay here.

    Livia Erdos

  • In 1950 JewishCare helped me to migrate to Australia and gave me the opportunity to have a great life here. Then 5 years ago when my wife died JewishCare was there again for me. You never know when you may need help and I am very thankful to JewishCare.

    Jacob Binstok

  • 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.

    Charles Solomon

  • As I can’t go out by myself, I am so appreciative of JewishCare’s staff who help me to appointments and especially the Russian speaking worker who takes me to the beach or the park each week. That is so important to me.
