Senior Home Care Long Island

What is Home Care?

Home care is a service that allows Long Island 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.

Home care professionals make it possible for Long Island 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 Long Island 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 them to continue living according to their 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 has been shown to allow older people to stay mentally and physically fitter, and many find they enjoy life more.

 

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, home care provides the assistance they need to hold on to the agency they’ve always enjoyed
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.
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 get instant assistance from one of our highly trained caregivers.
Health and Healing
There’s a good amount of evidence that people stay healthier and heal faster in their 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. Caregivers offer dementia care, and clients with cognitive decline almost always fare better in a familiar setting than an assisted living facility.
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.
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 Long Island 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 Senior Home Care for Us?


Who can benefit from companion care? Almost any senior on Long Island, 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 home 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 Long Island, NY area, and will benefit from some daily assistance, caregivers can enhance your life and make activities easier and more pleasant.
