Elder Care in Nassau County

In thinking of elderly care services in Westbury and Nassau County, it is essential to point out how this is a journey.  Home care is a journey, much like life itself. We have a senior client who we started out helping for just a couple of hours, then when they needed care more often were there a couple of days and then they needed live-in help and we were able to be there for them and their family.

Our home care services are holistic in nature. We are able to provide information about resources in the community and whatever we can to help them and improve their quality of life. We had a client who was a former social worker and she wrote to us to thank us for “making a difference in your community” and that meant so much to us because that is what we try to do every day. 

In home care can provide meaningful companionship for people who have limited social engagement due to health problems. Studies ​suggest that feelings of loneliness can lead to depression and even dementia. With our caregiver matching, we aim to create a mutually beneficial relationship between clients and caregivers as your loved one continues to grow and learn through social interactions. We can also provide transportation to church and other outings with old friends.
A need for 24-hour care in the home may last for a few days or for many years. Continuous round-the-clock care provided by Homewatch CareGivers can maximize the time that someone has with their family, while also making them comfortable and safe. Our flexible home care service plans can make caregivers available on shifts that cover day and night for all kinds of needs—specialized care related to meal preparation and support through the end of life and grief process.
Homewatch CareGivers specializes in elder care for people who need assistance with activities of daily living such as shopping, medication reminders, and meal preparation. Our caregivers are trained and educated to address the unique interests and needs of each person that they spend time with, whether they are with them for a couple of hours a day or 24 hours a day. We aim to engage our clients with meaningful experiences that will enrich their lives, while giving their family peace of mind that they are well cared for with us.
When we come into the home of an elder, we start by talking to them about their current abilities, needs, and preferences, and then we are able to craft a care plan to address this individual. In home elder care is about making sure that each person is able to continue living independently and safely for as long as they are able and choose this for themselves. Our caregivers are matched with each client so that they can also be true companions who reduce any feelings of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom.
Maintaining good health is part of preventative care, which may be the difference between staying at home and going to the hospital. For those who are recovering from a hospital stay, our caregivers can help ​encourage sticking to a physical therapy regimen, giving reminders about properly taking medications, and reviewing potential falls hazards in the home in order to reduce the possibility of a hospital readmission.
