Home Care Brooklyn

Many seniors or those with illnesses or disabilities balk at the thought of an assisted living facility. While they might need some help with daily activities, older adults in the Bronx area who do not have serious health conditions have another option  – companion care.

What is home Care?

Senior home care is a service that allows Brooklyn seniors to age in place, staying in their own homes rather than going to an assisted living facility. Home care services can help you or your loved ones with the activities of daily living like grocery shopping, meal prep and other cooking, light housekeeping, laundry, pet care, personal care, assistance with physical activities, transportation to appointments and events, and companionship and supervision. All of our companions are caring, highly qualified, and ready to provide short or long term home care services and support all over Brooklyn.

Because we provide care whenever it’s needed, home care professionals make it possible for Brooklyn, NY seniors to age on their own terms, in the place they love and feel most comfortable – their own home.

Elder care is very beneficial to those who are finding certain daily chores a little more difficult. Many New York seniors dread the idea of giving up the home where they’ve raised their family and built a lifetime of memories. With companion care for seniors, you or loved one can build a care plan that allows you to continue living according to your own terms.

Benefits of Home Care Services?

Home care services have many advantages over nursing homes for those New York seniors who don’t have serious health problems. Companion care in Brooklyn has been shown to allow older people to stay mentally and physically fitter, and many find they enjoy life more. Companions take care of basic needs like cooking, personal care, and other daily chores, so if you cannot be there to assist a senior loved one, you can rest assured our team is providing the support they need.

Independence and Dignity:

When someone has set their own routine and lived their way every day, going to live at a facility where meal times and activities are prescribed can be jarring and unpleasant. Some people don’t want to do the same things every day – eat at the same time, go to bed at the same time, and so on. Many people like their possessions a certain way, and they value their privacy and time alone.

For a senior who likes to set their own schedule, a home care agency provides the assistance they need to hold on to the agency they’ve always enjoyed. Senior care allows you or your loved one to watch television, go for walks, visit with friends, participate in activities – or not – whenever they choose. Our home care provider will take care of the basics in the mean time.

Happiness and Community:

Long Island seniors can enjoy a better quality of life and will often be more content overall in their own home. They are closer to friends and neighbors, religious institutions, and community events. It’s often easier for loved ones to gather than it might be in a nursing home, and people can remain in the place they’ve chosen and love. For many, a companion caregiver allows for a much higher quality of life. Senior care services simply add another friendly face to the support network.

One-on-one attention:

Senior care means you or your loved one is the sole focus of a caregiver’s attention. Even the best live-in facility with the most dedicated staff is unable to focus a single person 24 hours a day; there are just too many other residents. You may not come to any harm because of this, but it can mean waiting to get what you need. With companion care services, you or your family members will get undivided attention. With home care, you or your loved one will also get instant assistance from one of our highly trained caregivers based right here in Brooklyn, NY.

Health and Healing:

There’s a good amount of evidence that people stay healthier and heal faster in their personal home than in a hospital or assisted living facility. It probably has a lot to do with people being more comfortable, under less stress, and better able to rest and be mobile.

Though they are not home health aides, caregivers offer dementia care, and clients with cognitive decline almost always fare better in a familiar setting than an assisted living facility. Senior care services can provide caring supervision to those with memory or cognitive issues.

Peace of Mind:

If you have a family member in Long Island, New York, who you cannot be with all the time, either because you live far away or have to go to work, knowing a professional caregiver will be on hand to help with chores and see to the well-being of an elderly person can be very reassuring. If you are older and need help, you don’t have to struggle with tasks that have become frustrating or worry about how you will run necessary errands. For those who need it, our team can be available 24/7, providing whatever assistance you need.

High Quality Services at a Lower Cost:

Your professional companion will be a well trained caregiver ready to provide all the non medical services you’d find at a nursing home. Every care plan and situation is different, but for many New York clients, home care is less expensive than an assisted living facility. This is especially true if you only need caregivers to stop by a few times a week with groceries or to help with household chores.

Is home care right for us?

Who can benefit from companion home care services? Almost any senior in Brooklyn, NY, New York City, or the nearby communities who might need assistance with daily tasks can benefit from a professional caregiver. If you or a loved one finds themselves struggling with chores, needing transportation, or needing companionship and a friendly face to check in, senior care provides a great alternative to a nursing home.

The only caveat is that home care staff are not home health care providers. If you or one of your family members has medical issues that require home health care, they will need to look beyond a senior care provider. Companion caregivers are not licensed as nurses, and beyond simple medication reminders, they are not equipped to provide medical care.

Essentially, a professional caregiver can provide almost any non medical service you or a senior loved one needs. If you or your family member is in generally good health and in need of quality care, live in the Brooklyn, NY area, and will benefit from some daily assistance, caregivers can enhance your life and make activities easier and more pleasant.

 

How are home care services different from home health care?

 

Companion care assists older adults and the mobility challenged in Long Island, Brooklyn, Queens, and the rest of New York City with daily tasks such as running errands, doing laundry, preparing meals, and so on. Nurses and other health professionals can provide more specialized medical services in the home.
