Care Management: Supporting Safe and Independent Living for Seniors

Tuesday, May 12, 2015
Temple David, 4415 Northern Pike, Monroeville

Kelly McElhinney, LCSW, geriatric care manager at Squirrel Hill Psychological Services, will facilitate the program, which is intended to help older adults identify the resources and supports that they may need to live as independently as possible.

This Living & Learning session will also give family members more peace of mind that an aging parent or other relative has access to the services they may need.

The discussion-based program will focus on an overview of the various elements of geriatric care management, including assessment, referrals and ongoing services. The talk will be beneficial to either older adults or their friends or relatives who are interested in learning how a professional can help to identify needed resources and coordinate care.

For more information or to RSVP, call Beverly at 412-372-1200 or

This year, our Annual Meeting will focus on a tribute to the volunteers who propel our programs and make our work possible. Volunteers are vital to our work and mission, and we are so thankful to those who help make it possible for our agency to change the lives of so many in our communities.

We will also be honoring and recognizing current JF&CS board member Paul Dubner, recipient of the 2015 Dr. Howard A. Mermelstein Leadership Award for outstanding board leadership.

Each year, JF&CS serves more than 8,000 people who turn to us for help when experiencing life’s changes and challenges. When faced with those often overwhelming challenges, individuals and families find strength and support in the vast array of JF&CS services and programs; armed with resources to confront their immediate crises, and better prepared to face life’s changes in the future.
