Home Care Queens

Many Queens and New York City 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 Queens, New York area who do not have serious health conditions have another option – companion care / home care services.

 

What is home companion care?

 

Companion home care services assist seniors or anyone in Queens, New York 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
Family caregivers in need of respite care

Home care providers and aides allow senior citizens, older adults, the home-bound, and the disabled to remain in their own homes and live comfortably and with dignity. Companion care services and senior care 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 and improve the quality of life every day.

What care services are available?

 

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

Companion home care of Queens, NY specializes in tailoring elder care services / services for the disabled, etc. to your needs, allowing you, your spouse, or your mother or father to have peace of mind and 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, specialty care services, and more – anything the client needs, even if it’s just companionship and conversation. Clients and their families or loved ones are our number one priority.

Our mission is to provide you or your loved one with a caregiver who is also a friend. Care providers work hard so seniors and others seeking help across Queens know they’re not alone – they always have someone to turn to for personal care, help with errands, dementia care, elder care, and much more. Every client is important to us, and we let them know through our compassion and the service we provide to Queens, New York, and the surrounding area.

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 care opens many more options for recreation, hobbies, and visits with friends and family than assisted living / senior care facilities.

Comfort and Familiarity:

Because companions come to you, you or your loved one receives the services they need while surrounded by the home they’ve built and the things they love. Companion home care can provide the services necessary to improve the quality of life for older people all over New York. Clients and their families enjoy more time together.

Flexibility:

Our mission is to ensure companion care and senior care in Queens, NY 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 for personal care, or it could be a combination. Companion care services 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.

Respite for the Primary Caregiver

We understand how arduous it can be to care for a loved one full time, and you must take care of your own mental health. Caregivers are available to step in and allow the primary carer to run errands or take some time for themselves.

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?

Are home caregivers the same as home health aides?

 

While they are not exactly the same, companion home care and home medical care can work as a team. 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.
