Ulster Dutchess Recommended Home Care Agency

High Praise & Commendations for Home Health Care and Companion Agency . . .

Dear Friends,

I am enclosing payment for your care of my aunt, but it is more than money that I am enclosing. I am enclosing gratitude and praise to a unique business that cares for people as much as for its own gain.

I showed up in Kingston a few weeks ago to find my dear elderly aunt in a dire living situation. My brother and I do not live locally and are not able to be daily caregivers. I contacted Home Health Care and from that moment on until the moment we moved her to an assisted living facility the story was only good. Venona interrupted what she was doing and immediately came over and expressed a level of leadership and professionalism rarely seen. Kevin and Chris were accessible, courteous, and always there to help. Never a bureaucratic response from them. The aides were dedicated, delightful, and reliable care givers, each and every one of them.

We are sad of course to see our aunt age and have to go through difficult times. She is very sad to leave Kingston. Kingston for her - and for us - represented some of the better values in life; community, caring people, neighborhood, decency.

I don't know what Kingston is like today, but I do know that there is a well-kept office on Albany Avenue led and staffed by unique people who fully live up to the words 'Home', 'Health', 'Care', and 'Companion'.

If anyone ever needs help with their beloved, this is the place to contact.

Home Health Care & Companion Agency has made a dramatic difference in the care giving for my husband. Their capable, kind, interested and responsible home health aides create a more secure and stable home environment for my husband. The aides have also imparted more confidence to me and have lightened my care giving role, making for a more pleasant life.

~ Gloria Ausubel ~

I'm very pleased with the high level of personal assistance and care that my mom receives at home at least twice a week from Home Health Care & Companion Agency. It is very comforting to deal with an agency that is so friendly and very helpful.

~ Herb Herzog ~

We have much praise for the Home Health Care & Companion Agency of Kingston. For several months we had the services of a caregiver for my husband. The nurses were most helpful and understanding. Also, help was available in the possible absence of our caring aide.

~ Shirley Doty, Woodstock, NY ~

The team at Home Health Care & Companion Agency has worked with our family for several years. Each time a new challenge has arisen, everyone from the nurses, to the aides, to the scheduling coordinator has worked tirelessly to ensure our parents had the highest quality care. We don't know what we would have done without this team of dedicated and caring professionals.

~ The Gagliardi Family ~

It was a relief to begin working with Home Health Care and Companion who came to us on the recommendation of our insurance company after some months of inconsistent scheduling and ups and downs with other agency managements. The aides have been compassionate and attentive to their work and the scheduling people are professional and accommodating. It is nice to know they are close at hand and we will continue to use them.

~ The Gagliardi Family ~

Home Health and Companion has been a part of our family for 21 years. They have provided superior care to both my mother and sister. Audrey and Chris have supported us through many transitions and we are eternally grateful for their support.

Home Health Tips

Medication Misuse A Real Threat To Seniors

Fact: According to the Archives of Internal Medicine, approximately 28% of all hospital admissions for those over 65 are caused by medication non-compliance.

Fact: Nearly one half of the 2 billion dispensed prescriptions each year are not taken correctly... leading to serious health issues.

As you can see, misuse of medication by the elderly is a real problem.

And, it's now a leading cause of accidental death in seniors. 125,000 people die every year — twice the number of people killed in car accidents.

Sad, but true.

How To Protect Your Loved One

Unfortunately, most of us are not equipped to safeguard against the many hazards of medication non-compliance by a loved one.

After all, you have many other responsibilities in your life. It's not easy.

But, armed with the right information and resources, you can ensure your loved one is safe and sound. more »

Falls Leading Cause of Decline In Seniors

At our agency we hear it all the time from concerned children...

“My Dad fell again, but he refuses to accept any help...”

Learn why accepting “no” from a parent who has fallen one or more times is a high risk situation. more »
