From the

CEO

Dear Friends,

In this issue of Family Matters, we’re highlighting the work JFS is doing to support older adults in our community. As baby boomers age—and seniors live longer—the demand for support services is growing exponentially. JFS remains committed to serving this population with needed support services that improve quality of life and ensure that older adults stay supported, connected, and engaged. Jewish tradition teaches us to honor and respect our elders for their wisdom. The Torah considers old age to be both a blessing and a virtue. Older adults hold a special place in all our hearts, as they should. They’ve contributed a lifetime of hard work, sacrifice, and hardship to make our world a better place. They continue to contribute to our society and have much to offer. We owe them the opportunity to age with purpose, dignity, and in comfort. And as they become frail and vulnerable, we have an obligation to make sure they are cared for and not forgotten. I share JFS’s long-term commitment to supporting older adults and helping them maintain their independence through the array of services offered in our Jay and Rose Phillips Senior Solutions Center. While the growth of the older adult demographic presents its challenges, it’s also an opportunity to expand what we’re doing by increasing our support to caregivers, strengthening programs focused more on prevention

and less on crisis intervention, and engaging a volunteer pool to fill in the gaps of care needs. The Senior Solutions team is hard at work identifying ways we Linda P. Foster can deepen our impact on those we serve and is continually exploring partnerships and funding that improve the lives of older adults throughout the Denver and Boulder area. I hope you’ll join me in supporting the JFS programs that provide vital support services to older adults in our community. Whether it’s food and companionship for a homebound senior, homemaker services for a Holocaust survivor, or engaging activities for a group of older adults to do together, JFS is ensuring this population has the support it needs to thrive. L’shalom,

CLIENT Spotlight

Seeing Sandy’s Potential Sandy Marsik

is 71 years old and legally blind. She suffers from a rare genetic disease that has resulted in the loss of most of her vision. Since her diagnosis, she’s had cataracts in both eyes, macular degeneration, and Sandy Marsik and her glaucoma. She’s had service dog, Mitzvah five corneal transplant surgeries. While her eyesight has improved after each, the disease always progresses. Before her vision challenges forced her to retire, Sandy was a successful oncology nurse in Chicago. The disease started to impact her in 1995, and in 2013 her doctor declared her legally blind. She could no longer drive or earn a living. “It hit me in the stomach,” she says. “Losing my vision was something I didn’t anticipate.” As the disease continued to advance, it got to the point that Sandy couldn’t take care of daily living tasks. Then, she took a fall. A good friend intervened and recommended that she contact JFS for help. When Sandy reached out to JFS, she was connected with Eve Lowinger, a JFS care manager who oversees her care plan and keeps Sandy living safely and independently. It was the beginning of a long-term relationship of care and support that is helping Sandy thrive. Losing her vision took an emotional toll on Sandy. She began seeing a JFS therapist who specializes in aging issues and could help her process her immense sense of loss. Because she could no longer drive, JFS helped her with transportation so she could get to doctor appointments and run errands. Sandy’s blindness has also limited her ability to maintain her apartment and cook for herself. She can’t do laundry, vacuum, mop, or any of the day-to-day tasks

that most people take for granted. Operating the stove is dangerous for Sandy, so she is limited in her ability to prepare meals for herself. To keep Sandy living independently, Eve arranged for a JFS homemaker who cleans Sandy’s apartment, including doing laundry and changing the sheets. Justine Berg visits Sandy “Having Justine once a week and does in my life is such a all the heavy lifting that blessing. Without Sandy can no longer do, her, I’d be living in plus helps to organize her kitchen and closets a pigsty.” so she can find things. —Sandy Marsik With Justine’s help, Sandy can safely use the stovetop and prepare simple meals for herself. “Having Justine in my life is such a blessing. Without her, I’d be living in a pigsty,” she confesses.

Justine is more than a housekeeper to Sandy. “We’ve become good friends,” she says. She looks after me. It helps that she loves my service dog Mitzvah as much as I do.” The feeling is mutual for Justine. She has been working for JFS for the past year and enjoys her role as a homemaker for older adults. “I was a housekeeper for a local for-profit service and felt really unappreciated,” says Justine. “I was just cleaning houses and it wasn’t very rewarding. I enjoy meeting and interacting with the people I work with through JFS. It’s more personal and rewarding. I am making friends with all the people I work for.” Eve and Sandy have also formed a deep connection. Eve makes sure Sandy has everything she needs and personally takes her to medical appointments and to Talking Books Colorado every week, where Sandy can access audio books to satisfy her deep love of reading. Eve helps calm Sandy’s anxiety by being there when she’s “I can talk to Eve needed. about things that “I can talk are bothering me. to Eve about things that are I share feelings bothering me,” that I normally says Sandy. “I wouldn’t with share feelings From left to right: Eve Lowinger, Sandy Marsik, and Justine Berg others.

SENIORS Matter

The Changing Landscape of Service to Older Adults

By Chandra Matthews, Director of the Jay and Rose Phillips Senior Solutions Center

Every single day,

the Senior Solutions team at JFS works to coordinate an array of services to help older adults live as independently as possible for as long as possible. Right now, someone is likely getting their house cleaned by one of our dedicated homemakers. Another client is opening the door to a JFS driver there to drop off a kosher meal. And yet another is talking Chandra Matthews intently with their care manager about coordinating services to help them remain in their own home for as long as possible. This is merely a snapshot of the many services offered by the Senior Solutions department at JFS. We are honored to provide these and so much more! As a result of the growth of this population, however, the landscape of services to older adults is changing. By 2050, Colorado’s older adult population will double, a demographic By 2050, Colorado’s change that will older adult population impact Colorado’s economy, will double, a infrastructure, demographic change the age and skills that will impact of its workforce, Colorado’s economy, and the social infrastructure, the landscape.

communities of choice. Through a union of home-based services and community engagement opportunities, JFS continues to implement individualized services and activities to meet the needs of the growing population of older adults that are designed to meet their individual needs, not just those of the “typical senior.” The increase in demand for service also begs the question, who will pay for it? It is unlikely that private or public funding will be able to keep pace with the rapid growth of the older adult population, so service delivery must also be innovative, efficient, and cost-effective. JFS believes we must work to engage the entire community in meeting the needs of its older adults. We work to engage neighbors and other community members to help our clients. We also utilize volunteers and student interns and understand the importance of supporting family and other caregivers who provide countless hours of assistance to their loved ones. As we navigate this changing landscape, we are fortunate to have support from a variety of foundations, donors, and government entities that help us provide these vital services and we will continue to pursue partnerships that will allow us to expand service to keep up with demand and achieve our mission of serving those in need. Chandra Matthews, MSW, is the director of the Jay and Rose Phillips Senior Solutions Center, where she is responsible for providing leadership, vision, strategic direction, and program development to all JFS programs serving older adults. Chandra has spent her career dedicated to improving the lives of older adults through direct social work practice, advocacy, and program development and implementation. She is most passionate about ensuring older adults can live their lives with the utmost dignity and respect. Chandra received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Texas Tech University and a Master of Social Work from the University of Denver.

CircleTalkTM: Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends

For some older adults

who leave their homes for the security and support offered by senior residential communities, the transition is difficult. Social networks are disrupted or lost leading to loneliness, isolation, and lack of meaningful community. A growing body of research shows that these transitions can increase the risk of cognitive decline, dementia, and depression. A survey done by health insurer Cigna in 2018 found that loneliness rivals smoking and obesity as a health risk.

A Shared Love of Family Brought Two Strangers Together

When Lexi Szewczuga’s grandmother in

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, passed away last fall, she wanted to honor her grandma’s memory by helping a local senior. “My mom often visited my grandma in her nursing home and shared that hardly any of the residents had visitors and how excited they were when people did visit,” Lexi explains. She used Volunteer Match to search for opportunities helping seniors and found the Friendly Visitor program at Jewish Family Service. While she wasn’t familiar with the local JFS, she has a connection to the agency. Lexi’s grandmother was separated from her own father in Poland during WWII. They both survived the Holocaust and were reunited in Wisconsin thanks to an ad her father placed in Milwaukee Jewish Family Service’s newsletter! Mary Bradley, 95, who likes to be called “Mrs. Bradley,” lives independently in a sunny apartment filled with homemade quilts and drawings from her greatgrandchildren. Over the past couple of years, her eyesight declined, and she needed some assistance. She called JFS and signed up for homemaker services and care management. When Mrs. Bradley met with her care manager last summer, she realized she also needed help organizing her paperwork, including the large volume of letters and drawings from her great-grandchildren. She requested a volunteer from JFS to tackle this project. The Volunteer Services department then worked diligently to select the right volunteer from a pool of applicants. “When matching a Friendly Visitor to a senior client, I look for commonalities as well as personalities that complement each other to make the match as mutually beneficial as possible,” says Christine Gillow, Volunteer Services manager. When Mrs. Bradley met Lexi, 26, about six months ago, it was a perfect match! “She’s close in age to some of my great-grandchildren and I instantly felt comfortable with her,” says Mrs. Bradley. “Time goes so much slower when I’m by myself and I really enjoy when Lexi comes to help me. Interacting with her is a bright spot in my day.

Mrs. Mary Bradley and her friendly visitor, Lexi Szewczuga

I am lucky to have a lot of family nearby, but they can’t always come over, so Lexi fills up part of my day, which I really appreciate.” Lexi enjoys helping Mrs. Bradley organize correspondence to her family and friends and hearing about her large family. “She has an amazing array of people she writes to and calls,” says Lexi. “I love seeing how involved she is with her family, especially since mine is 1,000 miles away.” Mrs. Bradley’s love for her family was even captured in a book! She saved 40 years’ worth of letters from her six grandchildren. In 2014, her daughter turned the collection into a published book entitled “Dear Grandmama, A Collection of Love Through the Decades” that is available on Amazon. It’s lovely that two people—separated by several generations—who value the importance of family have found a way to give each other this unique gift!

BACK TO WORK 50+ WORKSHOP Attracted Dozens of Job Seekers Jewish Family Service hosted a free

two-hour workshop on January 15 for job seekers who are 50 years of age or older. The event attracted 42 people, who filled the JFS Board Room to capacity. The workshop was held in partnership with AARP Foundation to equip Denver-area unemployed and underemployed older adults with the skills and resources to increase their financial stability and overcome barriers to employment related to aging. The BACK TO WORK 50+ program provides the training, coaching, and job-seeking tools that older adults need to compete with confidence for today’s in-demand jobs. Adults age 50 and older have much to offer yet face the largest overall increase in long-term unemployment, the longest spells of joblessness, and the least likelihood of finding jobs. Older workers also typically experience longer bouts of unemployment than their younger counterparts. The workshop was the launch of a comprehensive and intensive coaching program that will continue into the spring and provide older job seekers with one-on-one guidance on online job searching, skills development, résumé writing, interviewing, and social media.
