what is home care

In Westbury and Nassau County, home care and home health care service can complement each other. We had a client who was an 83-year old retired teacher who had fallen and broken her hip. Home health services were able to provide her with physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other skilled services while she recuperated at home, and Homewatch CareGivers of Nassau County was able to complement these services in a collaborative way. The home care services we provided to this woman included light housekeeping, healthy meal preparation, hydration, medication reminders, and transportation to and from doctor appointments until her hip healed. Our professionally trained caregivers worked together with home health care to help this client get better. 

Home Healthcare

After a doctor’s visit or stay in the hospital, skilled care in the home is arranged in order to get you or a loved one back on your feet. Home healthcare includes:

  • Skilled nursing
  • At-home physical therapy
  • Pain Management
  • Caring for wounds
  • Prescription management

Home Care

Home care is about sustaining and maintaining your loved one’s quality of life in their home by assisting with activities of daily living:

  • Help with personal grooming like bathing or getting dressed
  • Help with moving around and getting in and out of bed or the shower
  • Medication reminders
  • Help with errands and chores
  • Companionship and friendship so your loved one is not lonely
  • Help preparing meals
