Geriatric Case Management and Support

Loneliness and isolation are the reasons many seniors turn to the Naples Senior Center at JFCS. The Geriatric Case Management and Support program works with seniors to help them age safely in place. A team of professional geriatric case managers provides comprehensive assessments and develops individualized care plans that meet the needs of seniors with a goal of maintaining independence as much as possible. A network of vetted volunteers visit home bound seniors for regular wellness checks, companionship, transportation to appointments and other services as needed.

Food Pantry

Food insecurity can happen to anyone at any time. The loss of a job or a spouse can trigger the need for additional support to put food on the table. Naples Senior Center’s Food Pantry is here to help. The pantry is open to everyone in the Collier County and southern Lee County communities regardless of age, race or religion.
