If you’re not home during the day, certified home health aides can provide your loved one with companionship or assistance with activities of daily living, or help to get to and from appointments and outings. Aides can:
Assist with bathing and dressing, meal preparation, using the toilet, errands, light housekeeping, and eating
Offer reminders to take medications
Assist with medical equipment
Provide companionship, such as sharing afternoon tea, helping with crossword puzzles and accompanying outside of the home
HouseCalls Home Care works around your schedule to meet your needs. In addition to receiving Home Health Aide services, we can assist with getting approved nursing visits from your insurance company to help with the following services:
Monitor vital signs
Changing dressing for wounds
Administering medications, injections, or other treatments
Nurses will schedule visits with the client every 90 days.
Where you pay out of pocket for services not covered by your insurance company.
Private Pay you are in charge of how many hours, days, and time of service.
If you are unsure of how many hours or days make sense for your specific situation, or you have a loved one who is resistant to accepting help in his or her home, we offer a low-cost, in-home Assessment Session with a nurse, who will recommend the type of services and amount of care that are best for you.
For all clients receiving personal care, the nurse will create a customized Plan of Care- a description of all the client’s issues and needs for the home health aide to follow. The nurse will visit the client every 60 days to review the Plan of Care, make any necessary changes, coordinate all services provided by House Calls Home Care staff, and oversee the care and the team to ensure that your needs are always fully met.
Primary caregivers are often forgotten in the home care equation. You may be reluctant to run errands, meet a friend for lunch, or take a weekend to attend a wedding or to recharge because you don’t have a trustworthy, knowledgeable caregiver to fill your shoes. House Calls Home Care ‘s respite care for NYC aides can give you the time you need for yourself-and the secure feeling that comes from knowing your loved one is in capable hands.

Private-pay home care provides in-home personal care typically not covered by Medicare or private insurance.
Although most often used by seniors, private care is for anyone who needs help (instead of, or in addition to, skilled nursing care) in managing a wide range of daily activities. Examples can include people recovering from an illness, patients challenged by chronic conditions such as loss of mobility or diminished mental status, and patients whose families are struggling to provide the level of support the patient requires.
Consider private care when your patient needs personal and medical attention to live safely at home, whether for short-term recuperation or longer-term care.
Most services are tailored for those who need assistance in their home or primary residence. Also, escort services help people get around town, to doctors’ appointments, family visits, grocery shopping, and social events.
Our services ensure that our client has the proper assistance needed to manage daily activities safely and as independently as possible, including to supplement the services authorized by Medicare or private insurance.
“I enjoy being a part of Housecalls because my coordinator is very understanding, and I can always get through to her. She is very patient with me even when I keep her on the phone for long periods of time. And if she is not available any one of the other ladies will help me. My coordinator also tries her best to give me the aide that I want. Even when they send me a replacement it’s like they found my permanent aide’s twin.” –Veran B.
