Need In-Home Health Care Services in Queens? We Have You Covered

Metasummary: Find a local home health aide in Queens, New York.

When you need locally based in-home health service providers for your loved one in Queens, look no further than Special Touch Home Care Services. We specialize in local caregivers throughout New York City, including Queens.

Locally Based to Serve the Queens Borough

We know that your No. 1 goal is reliable, responsible care for your loved one. But we also know that someone who knows the borough is going to keep the patient feeling much more “at home.” That’s why we seek out and employ home attendants who are neighbors of yours in Queens, whether you live in Flushing, Woodhaven, Richmond Hill, Astoria, Jamaica Estates or the beach enclave of Rockaway Beach.

Having a home care aide who knows the borough as well as your loved one means they can still enjoy outings to local favorites, like the Classic Diner in Richmond Hill, Triple Crown Diner in Bellerose or Pop’s Diner in Flushing.

These Queens-based home health care aides will also be able to navigate the local streets to ably accompany your loved one to medical appointments at Mount Sinai Queens, Flushing Hospital Medical Center or New York-Presbyterian/Queens.

A local home attendant can also make sure your loved one gets out to enjoy fresh air and the green space of local parks, finding either the quieter or bustling parts, depending on the patient’s mood, of parks like Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Forest Park or Alley Pond Park.

When the weather is more extreme, many patients prefer visiting a Queens-based senior center, such as the Eastern Queens Senior Center hosted by SNAP (Services Now for Adult Persons, Inc.) or the Catholic Charities Howard Beach Senior Center, which offers a full complement of daytime activities for local seniors, in addition to residents. From card games to Wii bowling to bingo, there is something for everyone.

Is Your Home Care Attendant Truly Local to Queens?

Beware the home care agencies that claim they “service” your local borough. One of the ways that Special Touch differentiates itself from other in-home health services experiences is that its attendants are truly local. They live in the same Queens neighborhoods as your loved one, which not only can increase the bond between client and home care provider, but is helpful in logistical ways as well.

In addition to loving, competent care, expectations for a good home health care experience include having someone who is timely and reliable. Late or missed appointments can cause angst for everyone involved, from the patient to the family or friends who are overseeing and organizing their care.

Working with aide(s) local to your borough helps alleviate the scheduling problems caused by tardiness and absences. And of course, they are familiar with the local Queens amenities and services to make every outing or need easier to fulfill.

We also understand that the best caregiver could be a friend or family member and can help walk you through the process of seeking services and payments through 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.
