Caring for Seniors of All Faiths


Before our caregivers are hired, they must meet our strict qualifications on education and experience. Jewish Family Home Care caregivers receive ongoing cultural sensitivity training covering topics such as Jewish dietary laws, holiday traditions, and sensitivity for Holocaust survivors – though we welcome all faiths. Our caregivers must also stay current on Florida's requirement for 12 Continuing Education Units every year. All of our caregivers are licensed, insured, and bonded for your protection and peace of mind, and have passed a Level 2 FDLE background check. A supervisory RN also performs regularly unscheduled visits with the caregiver and client for performance evaluations. With Jewish Family Home Care, your loved ones are in professional hands. See our Caregivers, About Us, and Team pages to discover who performs our mission with professionalism, warmth, and compassion.
We perform a Level 2 FDLE Background Check.
Our services are not covered by straight Medicaid or Medicare. We do accept Long Term Care Insurance assignments, private pay and VA Benefits. Please allow us to verify your long term care insurance for you. Long-term care (LTC) insurance typically covers home care in Florida. This type of insurance covers many types of care not covered by Medicaid or Medicare including care provided in the home, an adult day center, an assisting living facility, a nursing home, and more. In terms of home care, a LTC policy can cover assistance with safe ambulation/transfers, personal daily care, skilled nursing care, and rehabilitation therapy. Medicare offers limited home care coverage and pays for services performed by a home health aide only when the recipient is also receiving skilled care such as therapy or nursing care. Veterans can qualify for long-term care including home health care through the VA. This can include help with daily tasks.

Hiring a private duty aide for your loved one can be more costly in other ways. The Department of Labor now requires private employers meet the minimum wage standards, follow overtime rules, worker’s comp and pay employment and social security taxes. Hiring an agency takes the administrative requirements and liability off your hands.

Home care can be crucial to providing your loved one with the highest quality of life, and to allow them to live safely and as independently as possible in their own home. It can help with the management of a medical condition, support recovery from a hospital stay or illness, and avoid unnecessary hospitalizations with services tailored to your loved one's needs.
Aging in place is the ability to live in your own home and community as you age with dignity, comfort, safety, and as much independence as possible. Remaining in your own home as you get older is a driving force for seniors as most prefer staying in the comfort of their own home and neighborhood for as long as possible.
Home care is a popular alternative to assisted living that's typically more affordable. With home care, your loved one can age in place in their own home where they are surrounded by years of memories, the neighbors they know, and the community they love. In an assisted living facility, your loved one will be in a new and unfamiliar setting, surrounded by strangers, which can often cause discomfort and worsening of certain conditions such as Dementia.
Home care makes it easy for friends, family, and neighbors to visit and gives your loved one the comfort and benefits of the familiar.
