My name is June Ridgway. I am manager of AgeWell Cincinnati, a new central solution that links older adults, their family members, friends, and caregivers to community resources for aging well in Jewish Cincinnati.
I have more than 30 years of experience, including 15 years as a medical social worker at the University Hospital and manager in the Aging and Caregiver Services Department at Jewish Family Service.
To meet the needs of those 60 and better, the Cincinnati Jewish Senior Service Coalition created AgeWell Cincinnati. AgeWell Cincinnati is led by Jewish Family Service in partnership with Cedar Village, JVS Career Services, and the Mayerson JCC.
Between these organizations, older adults in Jewish Cincinnati have access to more than 60 amazing programs, services, and resources geared directly toward them. However, many Cincinnatians find it difficult to locate these programs and services.
With access to credentialed resource experts, AgeWell Cincinnati links older adults and their family members to personalized solutions that enhance independence and help you live a healthy and enjoyable life. We are the first stop on your journey to aging well in Jewish Cincinnati.
We need AgeWell Cincinnati because many people in the community find growing older to be extremely difficult. But it does not have to be. Jewish Cincinnati has so many great services to offer older adults, and they are all at your fingertips. If you are an older adult, or family member of one, and looking for answers, don’t go at it alone, reach us at AgeWell Cincinnati.
I believe that as we grow older, we do not have to run away from aging. We should embrace it by knowing our strengths and weaknesses and our value, regardless of our age. I am passionate and dedicated to helping older adults maintain their independence and enjoy life to the fullest. Do not hesitate to reach me or any of us at AgeWell Cincinnati. Let us be the first stop on your journey to aging well in Jewish Cincinnati.
