Westchester Family Care offers a variety of services aimed at helping your loved ones continue to lead independent lives.
Assistance with Activities of Daily Living
As we age, the activities of daily living — from getting dressed, to brushing our teeth, to bathing and toileting — become more difficult. This can be especially challenging for seniors with movement disorders like Parkinson’s, seniors recovering from surgery like knee or hip replacement, and seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
- Bath and shower assistance
- Oral hygiene assistance
- Dressing and grooming
- Incontinence care
- Toileting assistance
Fall Prevention and Home Safety
Falls are the leading cause of hospitalization for older adults and those with cognitive challenges, and can seriously threaten your older relatives and loved ones’ independence and safety. Fortunately, with the right safety measures in place, accidental falls can be prevented.
As we age, keeping living space clutter-free and accessible can be a challenge. To help seniors remain independent and healthy in the homes they love, Westchester Family Care offers fall prevention programs tailored to individual needs.
- Home safety evaluations
- Decluttering living spaces
- Bedbound repositioning
- Transfer assistance
- Assistance with walking
Laundry, Errands, and Housekeeping
Activities we often take for granted — from washing and folding laundry to picking up groceries — are more difficult, painful, and tiring for aging relatives and loved ones with disabilities or chronic illness. If you or a loved one is having difficulty with household chores, Westchester Family Care can help.
- Grocery shopping
- Meal preparation
- Running errands
- Light housekeeping
- Laundry services
Transportation and Errands
Driving can become a challenge with age and many seniors are left without easy access to transportation. Westchester Family Care can provide your loved one with personal transportation for doctor’s appointments, prescription pick-ups, shopping, and other non-medical errands to help them remain independent.
- Medical appointments
- Filling prescriptions
- Daily errands
- Social events
Social Engagement and Companionship
The social fulfillment of companionship plays a big role in a good quality of life. Unfortunately, elderly adults that live alone or far away from friends and family are at risk of isolation. This can lead to reduced energy and declining health.
- Arts and crafts
- Cards and board games
- Music therapy
- Reading and story sharing
Non-Medical Home Care
Proper medication management is essential to your loved one’s health, but handling it alone is difficult for many seniors and those with disabilities. Communication with medical professionals and assistance with taking the prescribed medications are some of the important services our New York Certified Home Health Aides (HHA) and registered nurses can help with!
- Medication reminders for the elderly
- Medication pick up
- Dietary guidelines
- Medication management

Bringing assistance into your personal life is often a decision made out of necessity. Our goal is to make sure patients and families feel confident in their choice by providing compassionate care and constant communication to give you peace of mind.
