Caring for an elderly or disabled family member or friend is demanding, and sometimes unpredictable. You want to do everything possible to ensure your loved one gets the care and services they need, but often work and other family responsibilities can mean you don’t have enough time to devote to caregiving. You may feel overwhelmed, or wonder if you’re doing enough.
VNSNY’s Caregiver Support Services give you the help you need and the peace of mind that your loved one is getting the best care possible.
Would VNSNY Caregiver Support Services help you?
When you need a trusted adviser who can support you and help ensure that your loved one is getting the services they need, VNSNY Geriatric Care Management offers expert, hands-on assistance.
With VNSNY Geriatric Care Management, you have a dedicated care manager—a registered nurse or professional social worker—who can help you care for an aging or disabled friend or family member.
Your geriatric care manager can step in to oversee every aspect of care. Starting with a comprehensive assessment of your loved one’s health and wellness, the care manager can see to every detail—supervise home health aides and other home care providers, work with contractors on home safety modifications, accompany your loved one to doctor appointments, and coordinate financial and legal matters.

The VNSNY Virtual Care Adviser offers access to an expert to support you. With real-time messaging through the mobile app or website, you are connected to a dedicated licensed social worker who can provide you with the information you need in a timely manner.
