Home Care & Senior Care from VNSNY

How can we help?

Whether you’re looking for senior care, help after a hospitalization, or assistance with in-home care, you’ve come to the right place. VNSNY provides in-home care when, where, and how you need it.

Senior Care

VNSNY Clinician provides senior careDo you need guidance balancing your loved one’s desire to live independently with the need for assistance? Finding the right care for an elderly loved one or for yourself can be stressful—especially if you aren’t sure what kind of help you need or even what services are available.

Partners in Care, a division of the Visiting Nurse Service of New York, offers solutions that fit every need, often within 24 hours of your request and all in the comfort and familiarity of home.

We can help when:

  • You’re looking after an elderly loved one, whether they live close by or far away.
  • You need assistance with personal care, general mobility, or senior companion care. Private home care offers the reassurance of a trusted helper to live more comfortably and stay out of the hospital or nursing home.
  • Your loved one requires live-in or 24-hour care to remain at home as long as possible.
  • You or a loved one want someone to provide skilled medical treatment to care for slow-to-heal or complex wounds, manage infusion therapy, feedings, or other situations where professional expertise is required, beyond what your insurance covers—and scheduled at your convenience.
  • You’d like to supplement covered hospice services so that you can focus on what’s important during your loved one’s final months.

Home Health Care

VNSNY Home Care RN visits a patient.As hospital stays become shorter, many people require ongoing professional medical care after they return home. Home health care provides skilled medical services to treat illness or injury. These services help make the transition from hospital to home as easy as possible, with no gaps in your care or treatment.

The goal of home health care is to help you or your loved one recover, regain independence, and become self-sufficient. And studies show that people who receive in-home health care have fewer complications that result in rehospitalization.

Home health care is often ordered by a doctor when you:

  • Return home after surgery or are recovering from an illness or injury and need medical care, or assistance with self-care, household tasks, and errands during your recovery
  • Have complex medical needs, or your treatment requires special medical equipment or careful monitoring
  • Have an advanced illness

Home health care services may include:

  • Skilled nursing care, to monitor surgical incisions and other wounds, review medications, and ensure you and your caregivers understand post-discharge instructions
  • Rehabilitation, such as physical or occupational therapy, to help you maintain or regain strength, balance, and coordination
  • Support and assistance from a home health aide, such as with eating or preparing food, bathing and dressing, or other activities of daily living, as you recover
