Home Care Long Island

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

 

What is home companion care?

 

Companion home care is a service for seniors or anyone who finds they need some assistance with daily activities, including:

The elderly
Cancer patients
Parkinson’s Disease
Traumatic brain injury
Children and adults with autism
Mobility-challenged or anyone in need of help or companionship

Home care providers allow older adults, the homebound, and the disabled to remain in their own homes and live comfortably and with dignity. Companion services are personalized according to you or your loved one’s needs, and quality care is available on an hourly, daily, weekly, overnight, or live-in basis. Care plans are customized for each client.

What care services are available?

 

Every client and situation is different, which is why home care is so versatile. It can be personalized to meet the needs of our diverse aging community here on Long Island as well as those with conditions that require them to seek extra assistance.

Companion home care of Long Island specializes in tailoring elder care services / services for the disabled, etc. to your needs, allowing you, your spouse, or your mom or dad to live the way they want to live. Caregivers can help with grocery shopping, menu planning, meal preparation, light housekeeping and laundry, errands, transportation to appointments and activities, medication reminders, and more – anything the client needs, even if it’s just companionship and conversation.

Our mission is to provide you or your loved one with a caregiver who is also a friend. Home care providers work hard so seniors and others seeking help across Long Island and New York know they’re not alone – they have someone to turn to, no matter what kind of care they require. Every client is important to us, and we let them know through our compassion and the service we provide.

What are the benefits of companion home care?

Freedom:

Clients can live according to their own schedule, set their own menu, and participate in activities when and if they choose to. Caregivers adjust their schedule to best serve clients, not the other way around, so companion home care opens many more options for recreation, hobbies, and visits with friends and family than assisted living facilities.

Comfort and Familiarity:

Because companions come to you, you or your loved ones receive the services they need while surrounded by the home they’ve built and the things they love. Companion home care in Long Island can provide the services necessary to improve the quality of life for older people all over New York.

Flexibility:

Our mission is to ensure companion home care in Long Island fits into your family member’s lifestyle, and we understand that every situation is different. You, your spouse, your mother or father, or another family member might only need occasional transportation, they might need help with weekly shopping and housekeeping, they might need daily visits, or it could be a combination. Companion home care will work with your family member to come up with a schedule, and we understand that needs can change.

Health and Recovery:

Available information suggests that older people and those with illnesses or injuries who remain at home long term stay physically and mentally fitter. Familiar surroundings have been shown to benefit those experiencing dementia or cognitive decline. Certainly the opportunity to continue favorite activities and visit friends with the help of a home care aide can prevent feelings of isolation, anxiety, and depression.

Longevity:

There is a great deal of evidence that loved ones who stay in their own houses with the aid of home care live longer, happier, and more fulfilling lives. Research and information also points to faster recuperation times in a familiar setting with home care.

Price:

The fact is, a caregiver or home care service can cost much less than a nursing home or long term care facility. We understand that price is a consideration for most, and we strive to provide and affordable alternative to elder care facilities. Especially for those who only need service a few times a week or occasional caregiver visits, companion home care can be significantly less expensive.

Is home care right for us?

 

Companion home 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. If you need further information on medical home care in Long Island, Brooklyn, Queens, or Manhattan, we can provide resources.

Are home caregivers the same as home health aides?

 

While they are not exactly the same, companion home care and home medical care can overlap. Home care doesn’t generally include medical treatments beyond reminders about medication, while home nurses do not often cook meals, do laundry, and transport a client to an appointment or activity.
