Senior home-care provider offers peace of mind to more families with elderly loved ones in New York City, through its expansion of 24-hour care to Westchester County

New York, NY (PRUnderground) December 6th, 2020

Fall prevention for elderly loved ones in Scarsdale, Westchester, can now be less of a load on the minds of family members since trusty senior home-care provider Touching Hearts at Home NYC arrived on the scene with its live-in care in the New York City neighborhood.  

Live-in care in Scarsdale is a boon in accident prevention as well as disease prevention, and can be especially reassuring for families whose elderly or infirm loved ones were recently discharged from inpatient treatment. The risk of readmission to a hospital can be substantially reduced with 24-hour live-in care. 

In the case of fall-injury prevention, one contribution of a live-in caregiver can be to help a client safely complete tasks such as standing up, sitting down, bathing and getting dressed. 

Touching Hearts NYC’s home-care providers in Scarsdale also assist with light housekeeping, errands, and making meals, among other tasks. In this way, live-in caregivers prevent falls by elderly clients who try to do too much too soon.  

According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), one in four older Americans experiences a fall every year.  

Falls are the most common cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries for people aged 65 or older, the NCOA says, and even relatively minor falls can cause a senior to become fearful, depressed, and less willing to stay active. 

Touching Hearts NYC takes the fall-prevention benefit of its senior home-care live-in service very seriously. 

The company understands that fall prevention and disease prevention are especially critical soon after a client is discharged from hospital care. It has been demonstrated that this period is when an elderly or infirm person is vulnerable to an injury or infection and, consequently, readmission to hospital. 

Technically, a hospital readmission can be defined as having to return to hospital as an inpatient within 30 days of discharge.  

As a seasoned home-care provider in New York City, Touching Hearts NYC is aware that injuries and illness can take a psychological toll on seniors that makes it tough to just bounce back. Conversely, some seniors jump the gun on convalescence and try to take on tasks that are too demanding before they are physically ready.  

Touching Hearts knows the value of guidance, care, and support during such trying periods.  

“It’s important to encourage older people to keep pushing through recovery so they can avoid a potentially costly hospital readmission,” company owner Craig Sendach said.  

For disease prevention, Touching Hearts NYC’s in-home care keeps clients remote from environments where they could be at risk of infection. The company’s live-in caregivers in Scarsdale and all other areas of New York City are strictly trained in fall prevention, standards of hygiene and prevention of infections. Worthy of mention also is the value of friendly companionship a live-in caregiver brings to an elderly loved one’s home at a time when family members cannot be present for any reason.  

Touching Hearts NYC’s services are 24-hour live-in care, companion care, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, light housekeeping, meal preparation, accompaniment (medical appointments etc), and transportation. Services, including 24-hour live-in care, can be tailored to a client’s needs. To discuss such needs, Touching Hearts welcomes requests for a complimentary home visit and consultation.
