LIFE - Living Independently in a Friendly Environment

The JFS Living Independently in a Friendly Environment (LIFE) program is an innovative program for older adults living in “Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities” (NORCs). Originally funded by a federal grant through the Administration on Aging, it is the first of its kind in the state of California.

Through our collaboration with residents, community leaders, businesses, and our sponsors, JFS LIFE works to help older adults maintain their independence, and create a sense of connection to their community. The program works to empower seniors to become partners in creating services and resources in order to age successfully in their own home.

Activities and classes offered through the JFS LIFE program include group wellness classes, educational activities, volunteer opportunities, the Senior Talkline providing information and referral, JFS CONNECT door-through-door transportation, friendly visiting, in-home safety checks, socialization, and linkage to other JFS services including nutrition and care management.
