In-Home Care and Support for ALS Patients in New York City – serving Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island and Nassau County.
In-home care is essential for the ALS patient. Having a caregiver in the home that has knowledge of ALS can help the patient to get the fastest and best possible treatment. If potential symptoms of ALS present themselves, a well-educated caregiver can help ease the way into long term care.
More and more ALS patients are opting for care in the comfortable surroundings of their home. This is especially the case for the elderly who are often too frail to be moved successfully. David York Agency in-home care providers are able to focus specifically on providing relief involved with ALS. Care is monitored by a specially-trained team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who understand how to treat the specific symptoms of ALS and improve the quality of the remaining years of life.
When home healthcare becomes necessary, David York Agency provides skilled home health aide services for the elderly and infirm in their home. A nurse is always available and would be happy to discuss your case with you.
No matter what level of service you need, we’re available twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week. Sometimes the cost of the services can be covered by private medical insurance or Medicare depending on the physician’s orders. Often long term care insurance will pay for a home health aide when the patient is unable to perform activities of daily living.
