The Center offers the opportu- nity tbr the older adult communi- ty to continue selecting the superb services of JFS while uti- lizing those at Sentara. "The proximity of the two organiza- tions along with the JCCT make our campus the premier site for older adult services in the Tide- water community," stated Harry Graber, JFS Executive Director. "The most exciting feature is that a patient and their family can continue to choose JFS Services while taking advantage of Sen- tara's state of the art facility," continued Graber. In addition, JFS may join with Sentara and the JCCT to offer wellness and prevention pro- grams right at the campus. Patients and families can tell the Sentara physician that they want JFS as their agency of choice when receiving homehealth care after a hospitalization or illness. Wheri counseling or psychother- apy is advised, patients may select JFS clinicians who have years of experience working with the senior population. Strict con- fidentiality is maintained and coordination between Sentara and JFS is done only with the permission of the patient. Case management, care coor- dination, volunteer services, meals on wheels, personal affairs management and quality of life are all JFS services available to patients of Sentara. "We have an incredible opportunity to coordi- nate efforts that would stand as a model in the region for the deliv- ery of service to the elderly. Sen- tara Senior WellCare Center is a wonderful innovative facility and its patients have the option of choosing the best that JFS and JCCT have to offer. It is our intent to seek enrollment as a provider in the Sentara HMO, so as to be available to anyone wishing to use our services. JFS certainly remains committed to the continued provision of quali- ty care and we are looking for- ward to the future with great anticipation and excitement," concluded Graber.
