Approaching the end of life can be overwhelming for everyone involved. JSSA’s Transitions program is here to help you and your loved ones make these changes as smooth as possible, recognizing moments of joy and celebration along the way.

We provide support free of charge to neighbors with a life-limiting condition – including but not limited to advanced dementia, congestive heart failure, metastatic cancer, and renal failure – who are not eligible or emotionally ready for hospice. As part of JSSA’s Transitions program, clients can continue seeking curative treatments.

A nurse coordinator visits once every six weeks to monitor participants’ health and well-being, provide hospice education, make referrals for additional community support, and assess participants’ homes for safety. “Home” may be a private residence, a retirement community, a nursing home, an assisted living facility, or an independent living facility.
