Jefferson Elder Care offers home-based services and professional training, all focused on the same goal: improving the daily lives of older adults and their families. Developed by experts at Thomas Jefferson University, our proven programs improve caregiver’s skills and reduce their need for assistance, help those with dementia perform their daily activities, and enhance the safety and daily function of older adults living at home.
Our services help people better manage dementia and other challenges of aging. Specially trained occupational therapists teach new skills and coping techniques to people in the comfort of their own homes.
