At JABA, our mission is to ensure that individuals and families live better. We believe that living as part of a community promotes healthy aging, so all JABA owned and run living options promote a sense of community. Whether you are seeking independent living or living with assistance, JABA continues to establish and preserve affordable living communities that increase options for living better.

Living as an elder should be an enjoyable part of your life. Why not enjoy yourself as part of a community that learns, plays and works together? At JABA, we have designed our Community Centers and our Adult Care Centers to promote fun and fellowship.

JABA is all about lending support to seniors in need of assistance. Whether that includes basic information, case management, insurance counseling, home delivered meals — or any of the many other available services — we want you to think of JABA as a source of support for you or your loved ones. Most of our support is offered as a gift to those who cannot pay. See individual programs for more details.

JABA is able to do all that it does because of generous volunteers and donors. We value contributions of time as well as dollars and promise to put your talents and your donations to very good use.

In the past five years, government funding has diminished. Luckily, individual and corporate contributions have begun to rise. Your assistance is greatly appreciated and needed.

Volunteer Opportunities


What’s good for us as we age is good for our entire community — from planning for neighborhood growth, to promoting local foods and collaborating for the best use of resources. This is the philosophy behind JABA’s mission, “to promote, establish and preserve sustainable communities for healthy aging that benefit individuals and families of all ages.”

Viable Futures

Caregiver Support Group

JABA understands the challenges of care giving. Even when caring for a loved one is an act of love, it still takes many new skills and a great deal of energy. It also raises a lot of questions. It also affects the entire family.

That’s why JABA offers Caregiver Support Groups. The caregiver gets the chance to share concerns, questions and experience with others, while JABA takes over the care of their loved one.

Time spent with people who share the same concerns helps you, as caregiver, return to care giving with a sense that you are not alone. In fact, caregivers who come regularly to a Caregiver Support Group tell us they could not make it without this fellowship and support. This will become your special community of friends who understand, like no one else, the importance of the job you do. The group meets the first Wednesday of the month from 1:00-2:00pm, and the first Thursday of the month from 5:00-6:00pm at JABA's Hillsdale location. Call Jean Bourbeau for more information 434-817-5235.
