In-Home Healthcare Providers in Westchester County Provide The Reliability You Seek

SEO: Find a local home health aide in Westchester County.

Have you fallen for the myth of the “local” caregiver that many home health agencies market?

At Special Touch Home Care Services, Inc., we know the true definition of “local,” and it means a home health aide who is your neighbor.

The fact is that many home health care agencies claim to have “local” options, but that can often mean someone who lives an hour away or more.

The benefits of having someone local to Westchester County are many, but the one that matters most to clients who organize care for their loved one is the convenience, which translates to more on-time appointments.

It’s a fact we never underestimate because we know the stress caused to all parties, the patient and the organizer, when a caregiver is tardy or doesn’t show up. Having someone local to Westchester County can alleviate the apprehension that comes when on-time visits are compromised.

But reliability is only one important factor in procuring a local, Westchester County-based home health aide from Special Touch. That’s because patients appreciate an aide who knows the patient’s neighborhood as well as they do.

The Benefits of Home Health Aides Who Know All About Westchester County

A local home health aide can be an invaluable asset in knowing the services and resources that are available in the neighborhood where you live, whether in Armonk, Croton-on- Hudson, New Rochelle, Yonkers, Sleepy Hollow or Dobbs Ferry.

For example, many seniors appreciate the social and educational aspects that come with spending a day at a local senior center. Someone who knows the area can help accompany them to Westchester County centers, such as White Plains Senior Center or the Senior Center of Larchmont.

Many patients also love the day-to- day stimulation they enjoy from getting out to enjoy a meal at a local Westchester County diner like City Limits Diner, Seven Brothers Diner or Ardsley Diner. Or, they might prefer the company of their home health aide while shopping for groceries, from stores like Rooster’s Market, DeCicco & Sons or Cherry Blossom Farm.

And of course, a local Westchester County-based caregiver can help your loved one safely get to appointments at a health center, whether they prefer White Plains Hospital, New York-Presbyterian/Westchester or Westchester Medical Center.
