Coordinating Services For Seniors and Adults with Disabilities In Southeastern Pennsylvania
Being home. That’s where so many of us want to stay, even as we age or when a physical limitation makes daily living more challenging. This is why so many turn to JEVS. Serving the community since 1984, JEVS Supports Coordination is a care management program that assists adults to live in their own homes and participate more fully in their communities. Services center on independent living, participant control in choices, and inclusion—all important to the JEVS mission of enhancing individuals’ quality of life.
The individuals we serve may be living with diabetes, multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure, pulmonary diseases, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, kidney disease, spinal cord injuries, neurological injuries, or other health situations that require long-term services and supports.
A dedicated Service Coordinator helps each program participant–whether he/she is a senior or an individual with a physical disability–create and re-evaluate a person-centered care plan for long-term home and community-based services. Service Coordinators are advocates who serve with compassion and professionalism to help individuals connect with an in-home care provider (home health aide), navigate community resources, as well as arrange for home modifications, durable medical equipment, assistive technology, transportation, discharge planning, and personal emergency response systems. In addition, JEVS can assist individuals in avoiding residing in a nursing home or transitioning out of an institutional setting.

Home and community-based services may be free for eligible individuals within various waiver programs funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services Office of Long-Term Living.
“JEVS has been invaluable with helping to alleviate the financial burden of my care.”
