In a time where protecting seniors has been more vital than ever, home health aides have answered the call citywide.
“Because we employ hardworking and compassionate home health aides who speak many languages, including Spanish, Polish, Filipino, and Arabic among others, we are able to provide care to many clients,” said Beacon Eldercare’s founder and CEO, Yvonne Murphy, “We’re committed to educating the community about eldercare and family planning as effectively as we possibly can, while helping our clients remain independent and extend their life in their homes.”
When families need in-home support for a loved one who has taken ill, Beacon Eldercare secures their clients home care through insurance coverage and/or live-in care through private pay. Beacon has a vast network of compassionate, professional, and highly skilled Home Health Aides, Personal Care Aides, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Registered Nurses serving the five boroughs and Nassau County. Beacon also guides families in filing Medicaid applications, understanding Medicare and HMO policies and the nursing home or assisted living application process.
Beacon’s Geriatric Consulting Team provides convenient in-home consultation to customize a plan that matches the family’s needs and lifestyle demands – sometimes even more.
“We went to Beacon when my grandmother really started to slow down and she needed help when my parents and I were at work,” said Benjamin Tifa, a longtime Elmhurst resident. “Eventually, we found out that they also advised families about protecting generational wealth and we were able to hold onto my grandmother’s house after she passed away.”
Despite reluctance by many citizens, especially seniors, to attend social events or large gatherings, Beacon’s home health aides follow strict guidelines and protocol upon entering any residence. Once inside, Beacon’s PCAs, LPNs and RNs provide discreet and dedicated support to your loved one. It’s a partnership that has earned the agency a reputation for providing some of the best home health care available to New York City residents.
“Our home health aides work in partnership with the families of loved ones dealing with illnesses and we take that trust very seriously” Murphy said. “Administering reliable, quality home care during these uncertain times is at the very heart of what we do.”
