A&T Healthcare has been servicing the community for over 30 years. One of the most valued services to our consumers has been our Home Health Aides and Personal Care Aides. To know that your family member has a trained and supervised aide with them, whether for a few hours a few days, or live-in care 24 hours/day, you want a home health agency that has built its reputation on providing that most needed care. A&T Healthcare has been approved by New York State to provide classes that train and certify both Home Health Aides and Personal Care Aides.
Choosing a home health agency that knows the challenges that accompany caring for an aging or disabled family member makes all the difference. Whether you are busy at work or live a distance from your family member, allow us at A&T Health Care to help you feel more at ease.
Reasons to Hire a Home Health Aide
The importance of hiring a home health aide cannot be overstated. Here are just a few of the benefits you get when you choose our caregiver services:
Safety – Keeping your loved ones safe is of ultimate importance. From walking assistance to medication reminders, health aides are there to look out for the best interests of your family member.
Hygiene & Nutrition – Health aides are also there to assist your loved ones with basic self-care tasks including teeth brushing, bathing, and using the restroom. In addition, in-home caregivers ensure that a nutritious and balanced diet is adhered to. We are ready to provide and assist with any personal care needs for you or your loved one.
Reminders & Schedules – With a home health aid by your loved one’s side, you can feel confident that a dose of medication or an important doctor’s appointment will never be missed. Moreover, reminders about bill payments, meetings, and other obligations will also be provided.
Independence – Many seniors dread the idea of moving into an assisted living facility. Home health care allows them to stay in their own homes, and receive enough help to get by without having every single thing taken care of for them. This strikes a healthy balance that allows them to maintain a sense of pride in their own independence.
Hospital Alternative – When a hospital visit or stay is required, having plans in place to use a home health aide will allow for a faster release. A professional at-home caregiver will be able to continue medical services at home. Furthermore, due to superior comfort and morale, recovery has been proven to happen faster and more effectively in a patient’s home environment.
Affordability – Hiring the services of a home health aide will often cost less than a nursing home or other care alternative. This is especially true if assistance is only required for a certain select set of hours out of the day.
Our aim is to create a bond between the provider and patient to improve quality of life. For compassionate health aid services contact our home health agency. We serve Westchester, Kingston, Orange, New York City, Mt. Kisco, NY, and Englewood, NJ.
Compassionate Home Health Agency
Not every agency provides live-in Aide service, but A&T Healthcare has prided ourselves on selecting and training live-in aides. The live-in aide can eventually become like another member of the family, respecting your individual cultural or religious preferences. All our live-in aides are provided with transportation to your home. When a switch is made for a break for the aide to go home, A&T Healthcare provides the relief aide, transports him/her to the home, and a Registered Nursing Supervisor will orient the relief aide to the care plan that you and your family have approved.
So, whether you need a few hours of care or live-in help, call your local office for more information.
