Home Attendant Program
BJCC understands that many prefer to remain at home as they age. For some, a little extra help is needed to enable them to do so. BJCC’s Home Attendant Services Program provides this extra help to Medicaid recipients. Our hundreds of home attendants are carefully trained to be skilled at caring for clients, fully attentive to clients needs, and respectful of the responsibility of being in the client’s home.
A NORC is a Naturally Occurring Retirement Community. This is a community that was not originally built for seniors, but over time has become home to a significant proportion of older residents. In response to this community aging in place, the NORC program is an innovative model that coordinates a broad range of social and health care services to support senior residents. BJCC is the umbrella organization for the Amalgamated Park Reservoir and Pelham Parkway NORC supportive services programs. We are also affiliated with the Parkchester Enhancement Program.
