Senior Adult Services
Holocaust Survivor Care
Consistent with our community’s obligation to provide Holocaust survivors in New Mexico with a caring support system, JCP provides a dedicated case worker to assist Holocaust survivors with coordination of care and services within the community, advocate for restitution funds from Germany and actively seek to improve an individual’s quality of life. With funding from the Claims Conference, we hold regular social gatherings for Holocaust Survivors to connect with one another.
Senior Outreach Services
JCP enhances the lives of seniors and helps older adults by providing comprehensive support to them and their loved ones. We conduct home visits as appropriate, facilitate access to supportive services, and help maintain a connection with the Jewish community for those who are isolated.
Visits to Jewish Seniors
JCP staff and volunteers visit and/or make supportive phone calls to Jewish seniors living in facilities and in their homes. These visits bring joy and regular connection.
Holiday Outreach Baskets
In an effort to extend our outreach to Jewish seniors, JCP brings baskets for Passover and Rosh Hashanah and Chanukah to isolated seniors and Holocaust survivors. With funding from Jewish Community Foundation of New Mexico and in partnership with local synagogues and community volunteers, we put together and deliver baskets to 75 Jewish seniors.
Information and Assistance
Resource and Referral
JCP fields requests to provide information and connect families and individuals in need to local social service organizations for support on a variety of issues such as senior housing, caregiving, religious life, transportation, health and medical, and housing and food assistance.
With funds from Jewish Community Foundation of New Mexico, foundations, and individual donors, JCP provides one-time allocations to Jewish individuals and families in various crisis situations including utility, rental, and burial costs.
Emotional & Spiritual Support
The Community Chaplain delivers pastoral care to unaffiliated individuals and families in the community and aims to ensure that religious and spiritual needs are met.
JCP facilitates weekly support groups. These groups provide a supportive atmosphere where individuals are able to share their experiences.
Caregiver Support Group: Caregiving for a loved one can be overwhelming and isolating. This group provides a compassionate space for caregivers to gain emotional support and information. Group meets Tuesdays from 2:00 – 3:00 pm; Call (505) 348-4451 for more information.
Grief and Loss Support Group: Grief is a natural process that can often be eased through sharing with others who have experienced the loss of a loved one or any other significant loss. Group meets Fridays from 12:00-1:00 pm; Call (505) 348-4451 for more information.
Wellbeing Conversations: These gatherings offer an opportunity to discuss how you are attending to your well-being and what you are learning from life during these uncertain times. Group meets Thursdays from 2:30-3:30 pm; Call (505) 348-4445 for more information.
