Increasingly, many of the seniors in our community are living alone and struggling on severely fixed incomes that don’t provide enough for food, rent, and mounting prescription costs.
Interfaith Community Services’ Senior Services are a community effort to enable frail, ill, or disabled persons to remain in their homes in a safe and healthy environment. The program recognizes that what older and disabled adults value most of all is their independence. Senior Services programs provide clients with a safety net, allowing them to feel connected to their community.
We provide an array of services to help struggling seniors, including food, emergency shelter, and housing for homeless and low-income seniors, regular wellness calls from client advocates, and minor in-home repairs to improve the general safety of their homes.
Minor Home Repair & Modification
Operates throughout North San Diego County
Volunteers and local business groups are recruited to assist in making minor home repairs for qualified seniors. These repairs make it easier and safer for caregivers to manage daily care giving activities. Services include such repairs as leaky faucets, repairing screen doors and windows, and installing grab bars and smoke detectors.
Operates in the cities of San Marcos and Vista
Maintains the well being and independence of seniors and disabled older adults by providing a wide range of support services including How R U daily reassurance calls, Vials of Life emergency medical information packets, and friendly visits to homebound seniors. The program monitors registered older adults and connects them to services and information. These support services enable frail, isolated, and disabled older adults to remain independent and in their homes as long as possible.
Trained Client Advocates offer hands-on assistance to seniors working through the maze of health and social services, enabling seniors to receive services needed to remain in their own homes. Staff work to create a personalized care plan and monitor the need for health and psychological assessments.
Corrine’s Cottage Homeless Women’s Shelter
Corrine’s Cottage is a six bed facility providing a safe environment where older homeless women challenged by mental illness can stabilize before moving into permanent housing.
Senior Supportive Housing
Interfaith operates two housing complexes to provide permanent supportive housing for up to sixteen older adults with disabilities. These programs provide wraparound supportive services to residents and work closely with Interfaith’s Client Advocates and mental health professionals to provide for the specialized needs of the residents.
