Manhattan-Based Home Health Care Providers Are Just What the Doctor Ordered

Need care for your loved one in Manhattan? We specialize in locally based in-home health service providers throughout New York, including Manhattan.

NYC Healthcare: Serving a Neighborhood Near You

At Special Touch Home Care Services, we have assembled a robust list of home attendants who hail from neighborhoods near you and your loved one, whether you reside in SoHo, Midtown Manhattan, Greenwich Village or Chelsea; or the Upper East Side, Lower East Side or Upper West Side, to name a few.

Our home care aides can assist in escorting you or your loved one to doctor’s appointments throughout Manhattan, as well as your hospital of choice, whether it’s Lenox Hill or New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center in the Upper East Side, or Mt. Sinai Hospital in East Harlem.

We find many of our clients still enjoy a trip to the grocery store, accompanied by their home health aide, or having their home attendant pick up fresh food from their local faves, from Morton Williams in Midtown West to Trader Joe’s in Chelsea, the Upper West Side or Midtown East. And we know that many a client have an occasional craving for some food from a favorite diner like the Manhattan Diner on the Upper West Side or Scotty’s Diner in Midtown East, we have those cravings on occasion as well and appreciate some quality conversation while noshing on some local cuisine as well!

Or perhaps your loved one would like to be accompanied to Lenox Hill Senior Center At Saint Peter's Church, where they can enjoy camaraderie, socialization, and mental stimulation that comes with viewing unparalleled arts and culture offerings – as well, of course, as the famed farm-to- table lunch available each weekday. Another popular spot is Hudson Guild, where adult services include bridge, crafting, discussion groups, yoga and more, with 60+ enrichment activities offered.

Why A Local Home Attendant Matters

While many companies say they “service” a given area, if their aides don’t live directly in a Manhattan neighborhood, you and your loved one might undergo unnecessary scheduling hassles. Lateness and absences can make the in-home health services experience unpleasant for all parties involved, most notably the patient and their loved one/caregiver.

A Manhattan-based home health aide will not only be more reliable, but can maintain that sense of “place” and “home” that residents crave, through knowing preferred locations for needed amenities as well as the services available close by.

Of course, we find that many families are looking for an even higher degree of “local,” that is, a friend or family member who can be paid to be their caregiver. Special Touch is one of the most prolific providers of CDPAP, a state program that enables patients to designate a friend or family member to be their caregiver, while accessing Medicaid funding to pay for their time.

If you’re truly looking for the local care that will bring you the peace of mind you need, count on Special Touch Home Care Services, Inc. Our 40-year tenure means that we have amassed a robust directory of 500+ active aides, local to Manhattan. The reasons they love to work for us – our fair compensation and coveted free training program – are the same reasons you will love hiring them.
