Care for Persons with Disabilities

Home care for the elderly is our primary service but we also offer home care services for physically and mentally disabled adults in White Plains and Westchester County, NY.

While disabilities are common among the elderly, there are steps that can be taken to reduce the severity of the disability (e.g., maintaining a healthy diet rich in fiber and low in calories, frequent exercise and yearly physical check-ups).

The five most common disabilities in the elderly include: foot problems, arthritis and complications resulting from strokes or diabetes.

Hiring a Neighbors aide, even for a few hours a day, can help your loved one maintain a healthy, independent lifestyle and improve their everyday quality of life.
