What Our Clients Are Saying

"Great Service."

I want to thank you and your organization for the outstanding job that you did caring for my uncle these last couple months - the care enabled my uncle to spend his last months in his home and with his friends from the men's club - my brother and I really appreciate the effort that you made - I think it made a big difference in the quality of my uncle's life.

"Thank You."

I was in a panic and desperate because I knew I would never find a caregiver so late on a Friday. But I found Home Care Assistance and couldn't be happier with their service! The woman they sent to care for my mother was just wonderful and my mother said she was so glad we found someone to care for her.

Cheryl B.
Daughter of Client

"Best Decision I've Made."

The 24-hour care that Home Care Assistance provided for our mom was unparalleled. She had three caregivers, each as compassionate, dedicated and hardworking as the next. Each caregiver worked eight hour shifts, which enabled them to stay focused and well rested, and in turn, provide the best care possible.

In Home Care Assistance in Hempstead & Nassau County New York

In-home care is a special type of care that allows persons who have special needs the ability to remain in their homes. This type of care is ideal for those who are older and want to 'age at home', those that are disabled, and for those who are recovering from surgery or have a chronic disease.

Some of the services that fall under the umbrella of in-home care are:

- The delivery and/or preparation of meals

- Homemaking (examples: laundry, light housekeeping)

- Personal care (examples: assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming)

The following is a brief guide that goes into much more detail about the different areas of in-home health care. These are all compassionate services that can be customized to meet the specific needs of you or your loved one.

What Is In-Home Care And Senior Care?

As mentioned above, in-home care is an umbrella term that encompasses a range of services and care that helps a specific segment of the population remain in their homes without having to relocate to a long-term skilled nursing facility.

For example, in-home care services for the elderly allow these individuals the opportunity to stay in their homes. This is known as senior care.

What Is Elderly Care And Elder Care

Elderly care, also referred to as elder care, is specialized care that was designed to meet requirements and needs of individuals as they get older. Elderly care, or elder care is a term that can refer to many different types of care such as:

- Assisted living

- Adult day care

- Skilled nursing care

- Home care

- Hospice care

Elder care is not always needed by seniors. In fact, many seniors are able to live independently without assistance for many years. However, elderly care may be necessary if a loved one begins to show signs of having difficulties handling their ADLs (activities of daily living) on their own.

What Is 24 Hour Home Care?

24 hour home care is an option for those who need care around the clock. This type of care ensures that there will be a caregiver throughout the day and the night with your loved one. In other words, 24 hour care offers optimal comfort and wellness for your loved one.

You and your loved one do not have to deal with the additional stress of having to relocate them to a facility and going through the process of eliminating familiar routines, prized possessions and even the lost of pet companionship.

With 24 hour care, there are two caregivers who will be booked to stay with your loved one for 12 hours each. However, some clients prefer to have a 3 caregivers for 8 hours daily. This type of scheduling ensures that the in-home caregivers are alert and are ready to assist the patient at any time.

Who Are Caregivers?

Caregivers are family members who have volunteered to care for their elderly, disabled or chronically ill loved ones. Caregivers are also specially trained medical professionals who are skilled in providing medical and non-medical care to those who are living at home.

They manage a wide range of responsibilities that can include:

- Cooking (meal preparation)

- Housekeeping

- Laundry

- Transferring an individual in and out of a bed, chair, toilet, shower etc.

- Assists with physical therapy

- Provides transportation to medical appointments

The role of the caregiver is impacted by many factors such as cultural approach to caregiving, type of illness and location. For example, caregivers who are caring for individuals in rural settings may face challenges if there are fewer medical facilities, physicians and transportation options.

What Is The Role Of The Home Health Aide In Home Health Care?

Home health aides work with clients in their homes when they are not able to perform daily tasks or care for themselves. These professional caregivers may also perform simple medical services such as checking the client's vital signs. Many caregivers specialize in cancer care, pediatric home health care or geriatric care.

What Is Dementia Care?

As a family member, it can be devastating to imagine that your elderly loved one can no longer remember precious memories or even recognize the faces of those who are the closest to them. However, it is important not to overlook the possibility that your loved one may get older-age dementia.

Dementia is thought to be caused by several factors including head trauma and diseases such as Alzheimer's and frontotemporal dementia. Other brain disorders thought to cause dementia are Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease.

Dementia care offer services that cater to the individual's memory and attention. This type of care also includes medication management.

What Is Stroke Care?

In-home stroke care helps to support a stroke survivor's recovery. Many stroke survivors have one goal after a stroke, and that is to be able to return to their home and live independently. Although this can be challenging, there are in-home support services that can help.

Rehabilitation often begins as soon as a stroke patient is stable, and it can begin as soon as 24 hours after the stroke occurred. When the patient is ready to be discharged from the hospital, a social worker will help the patient create a plan that will allow for continued care and rehabilitation. Some patients go into a rehabilitation facility, but most prefer to return home.

Once the patient is home, it is necessary that they receive continued services for rehabilitation. These services can include:

- Physical therapy

- Occupational therapy

- Mental health counseling

- Speech therapy

The patient may also need non-medical in-home care that will support recovery and independence. Professional caregivers can assist with meal preparation, housekeeping, assistance with activities of daily living and rehabilitation supervision.

What Is Parkinson's And Alzheimer's Care?

Many do not realize that Parkinson's and Alzheimer's is related in more ways than one. In fact, Parkinson's disease dementia is a medical condition that refers to Parkinson's symptoms that are impair memory, function and thought processes.

Parkinson's is a very progressive disease that affects the nervous system, and can affect an individual's mobility. It is thought that the neurotransmitters that are affected by the disease not only impair physical movements, but memory and mental function as well.

These individuals have special challenges that many families are not equipped to handle on their own. Specialized Parkinson's and Alzheimer's Care is necessary to maintain the individual's dignity and independence as much as possible.

With this type of care, it is imperative that individuals follow an established schedule. Never give them too many options as to not confuse or upset them.

Make sure that their living space remains basic and free of clutter. An uncluttered environment will help the decision making process go smoother.

What Is Cancer Care?

Patients who have been diagnosed with cancer required specialized in-home care. This type of care can range from skilled nursing care to home health services. Cancer patients may also require personal attendants who can complete the chores that are often overlooked such as laundry, shopping and light cleaning.

In-home care services vary depending on the specific needs of the client. However, there is one thing they all have in common. These services allow clients to recover, heal and manage their health with a level of integrity, independence and assistance while staying in the comfort of their home in Hempstead & Nassau County NY.
