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.
