A Legacy of Exceptional Care for All Faiths

When a loved one needs support to continue living at home, it can be hard to know where to turn.

We understand the emotion that accompanies the need for care and how overwhelming it can feel. When you partner with Jewish Family Home Care (License No.: 299994440), your family becomes part of ours. And like family, we’re here when you need us, 24/7.

Founded in 2015 as an outreach of Goodman Jewish Family Services of Broward County to care for aging Holocaust survivors in our community, we have grown to serve a diverse population, including all faiths and backgrounds.

Our Mission

We are dedicated to empowering individuals, strengthening older adults and families, and protecting the vulnerable and frail by providing direct home care and personal care services guided by Jewish values, social responsibility, compassion, and respect.

Our History

From the beginning, we have carried out our mission with a simple ethos: “To provide exemplary and vital senior services based on traditional Jewish ethics and values.” It was that way when we were founded in 2015 to serve aging Holocaust survivors, and it remains true for the people of all faiths that we serve today.

We’re a nonprofit organization delivering home care services to over 400 clients – and peace of mind to their families – across the entire community, regardless of religious affiliation.

Since we first opened our doors, we’ve been committed to providing warm, supportive, compassionate care, and these qualities remain the framework of everything we do today.
