Home Care Services
Our two pillars of service are outstanding companion caregivers and the highest level of client attention and personalization. When you choose ComForCare, you will have a team dedicated to taking on all of the challenges that come with aging at home.
We understand that every client has unique care needs. Some will require dementia care as a result of Alzheimer’s Disease or other brain disorders that cause similar symptoms. Others simply need help around the home and with keeping important appointments several times per week. We can also provide respite care for family caregivers that need to find time in the week for their own busy schedule. Whatever the circumstances, we can provide home care assistance to alleviate stress for you and your family while improving self-esteem and quality of life for your loved one.
Here are some of the in-home care services that our caregivers can provide:
• Social engagement and companionship
• Running errands/grocery shopping
• Keeping track of appointments and medications
• Providing help with housekeeping like laundry or straightening up the house
• Preparing meals
• Safety supervision
Combined with highly personalized care plans and ongoing communication to ensure every client has the resources they need to be happy, healthy, and safe, ComForCare NYC works to offer the very best through our caregivers.
We believe that encouraging a healthy overall well-being socially, emotionally and mentally is important, and we show that in our personalized approach to each client. We begin every client relationship with a free in-home consultation with one of our care advisors. Getting to know our clients in detail allows us to match the right companion and coordinate all of the services necessary to live safely and independently. We will also take the time to organize a weekly plan and find activities that will keep meaning and enjoyment in our clients’ lives.
In addition to our services, we will facilitate services from other health & wellness providers, including:
• Geriatric Care Managers
• Elder Law Attorneys
• Physicians, including House Call Doctors
