What Is Home Healthcare?

What Is Home Healthcare?

What is home healthcare, exactly? Home healthcare is the care provided in-home either by licensed healthcare professionals who provide medical treatment needs or by professional caregivers who provide daily assistance to ensure the necessities of daily living are met. HouseCalls Home Care is New York State’s premier assisted living, at-home services provider offering a wide range of services from nursing, rehabilitation, and nutrition to social work and home health aides. We also offer durable medical equipment for long-term, in-home use.

A Safer Alternative

In some cases, home health care was associated with a 20% lower mortality rate than hospitals. Treating patients in the comfort of their own homes can be both safer and significantly cheaper than hospital care, with the potential to save state and federal governments tens of millions of dollars per annum. A study by the University of Western Sydney’s Centre for Health Research found that home-based health care improved patient satisfaction and quality of life while reducing hospital readmission rates.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide superior, compassionate home care workers and healthcare services for disabled and elderly persons in the comfort and dignity of their own home. We partner up with hospitals, physicians, and other private caregivers to develop and coordinate care plans that allow the patient to maintain as much independence as they can. These care plans are available to individuals of all ages, regardless of race, creed, sex, orientation, disability, or nationality.

We work our hardest to be able to accommodate all our patients, which is why we hire care workers who are able to breach language barriers. HouseCalls is proud to offer services in the following languages:

  • English
  • Spanish
  • Haitian Creole
  • Bangla
  • French
  • Mandarin Chinese
  • Cantonese

We also offer language services on a case-by-case basis, such as Russian-speaking aides. We accept other language-speaking workers if they come staffed, with significant working hours, or eligible under the CDPAP program. The CDPAP program caters to the elderly and qualified disabled individuals regardless of race, creed, sex, orientation, or nationality.
