JFS at Home Holds Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

jfs-at-home-prBoca Based, Non-Profit Home Care Agency Provides Companions, HHA’s and CNA’s
Boca Raton based JFS at Home, a non-profit private home care agency affiliated with Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services (JFS), recently partnered with Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce to hold a ribbon cutting ceremony for its offices in west Boca Raton.
Operating as an independent entity, JFS at Home has been providing quality care at home for the elderly since its soft opening this past May. The Agency’s mission is to “promote healthy aging by enabling clients to maintain their quality of life while they continue to live at home, safely and with dignity.” The Agency is accomplishing this by providing trusted, compassionate, Companions, Home Health Aides and Certified Nursing Assistants to clients residing primarily in Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Highland Beach. These professionals are available around the clock to offer quality care and assistance to promote wellness and independence.
Aging in place, the familiarity and security of living in one’s own home, offers much comfort, which is why most seniors want to remain residing at home as long as possible. “When a loved one is challenged with health issues, additional assistance and care may be required,” stated Danielle Hartman, JFS President & CEO. “JFS at Home is committed to providing exceptional care and offer affordable options in home health care to its clients. While it’s often emotionally difficult to make decisions about how to best care for a loved one, there comes a time when the next step must be taken. JFS at Home provides families a sense of comfort knowing that their loved ones are cared for at home safely.”
“In 2015 the JFS Board of Directors approved a strategic plan which included planning for the future needs of seniors in our community. As a result, the JFS Board approved the creation of a separate yet affiliated homecare agency, JFS at Home. As the Treasurer of the JFS Board of Directors and the President of the JFS at Home Board of Directors, I am very excited to be a part of the launch of this new endeavor,” said David Schimel.
Since opening in May, JFS at Home currently services 75 clients and is on track to reach their goal of becoming a $1M entity by the end of 2017.
JFS at Home is seeking additional client focused and professionally experienced Companions, Home Health Aides and Certified Nursing Assistants to add to their team.

Be wary of private companies selling copies of deeds and other documents

From the Palm Beach County Clerk:
clerk-alert
Be wary of private companies selling copies of deeds and other documents
Several Palm Beach County residents have called my office because they recently received official-looking solicitations in the mail from companies selling certified copies of property deeds. I encourage everyone to be cautious of private companies trying to sell public records that can be easily obtained at the courthouse or online.
These companies often send letters advertising the government’s recommendation that all citizens have certified copies of their records, such as property deeds. They then offer copies of the records for fees ranging from $40 to $89 or even more.

Uncertified copies may be downloaded and printed for free by using the Official Records search on our website.
Certified copies of Deeds and other official records can be obtained from my office for just a few dollars — not for the excessive prices these companies are charging. You can obtain documents from the Clerk’s office for $1 per page and they can be certified for an additional $2.
In addition to property deeds, other public records available from our office include mortgages, liens, court judgments, marriage licenses and tax deeds.
Solicitations like this may be legal, but they are misleading. Every few years, we hear from residents who have received these notices and want to know what they should do. I want to remind people that this information is readily available online and at the courthouse – there is no need to pay that kind of money to view a public records database when you can easily find one on the internet.
For more information on receiving copies of your public records, please contact the Records Services Center at (561) 355-2976.
Best regards,
Sharon R. Bock, Esq.

Deals on Deva Curls Hair Care Products: West Boca Stores and Online

hairLast year, I took my daughter to Curls Rock Hair Studio in Boca Raton and discovered DevaCurl. DevaCurl makes hair products for girls and women with curly hair. This wonderful product really enhanced her curls and cut down on the frizz. Her hair has never looked better! Unfortunately, these hair products are not cheap.
Luckily I discovered that Amazon is selling the 32 oz size for under $30. Other DevaCurl products are also being sold at very good discounts.




In comparison, Sephora sells a 12 oz bottle of the no poo conditioning cleanser for $20 and the 32 oz bottle for $40.  Ulta, located at 9882 Glades Road (Westwinds of Boca, near DSW), sells the same product for $19.95 and $39.95. Harmon Face Values, located in Boca Greens Shopping Center, also sells DevaCurl products. The price is the same as Ulta but you can use a 20% Bed, Bath & Beyond coupon.
If you have curly hair, I highly recommend these products! The Amazon deal is particularly good if you have Amazon Prime’s free shipping.
