Jefferson Elder Care is committed to improving the lives of older adults and their caregivers by providing services and training grounded in research and real-world experience.

America's population is aging, especially the large number of baby boomers who are entering their senior years and living longer due to a greater awareness of healthy lifestyles. One out of every four of these individuals is now or will soon be a caregiver who helps aging individuals remain in the community. Supporting the efforts of these informal and formal caregivers with evidence-based programs is a critical contribution Jefferson Elder Care can make to improve the lives of both seniors and their caregivers.

Please learn more about our Jefferson Elder Care service and training programs.
