Sheryl provides outreach to our Jewish seniors geographically dispersed throughout greater Charlotte area, South Carolina and other neighboring counties. For many of these Jewish seniors, our Senior Outreach staff and the JFS volunteers are their only connection to the Jewish community. In addition to senior outreach, Sheryl is available to provide family members and caregivers with support, information and knowledgeable direction for those planning care options for senior family members.
