When you can’t be there to care for your loved one or when they need more care than you alone are able to provide, a Neighbors Home Health Aide (HHA) can help.
Our HHAs provide a range of hands-on, non-medical care to individuals with physical and/or cognitive impairments to enable them to stay in the comfort of their own homes.
Our aides will help your loved one with activities of daily living and make sure that they are safe and comfortable. They will also serve as your “eyes and ears” when you can’t be there personally. You’ll always have peace of mind knowing that your loved one won’t fall, be stricken with a sudden illness or injure themselves and be left for hours until help arrives.
In the event of any emergency, our aides will immediately call 9-1-1 followed by contacting our Neighbors Home Care Services Administrative Office. Once notified of an emergency, our office will contact you or a Power of Attorney.
