In-Home Nursing Care

When your loved ones require care that you are unable to provide due to time constraints or medical knowledge, the nursing support at home service from Alliance Homecare can help. There are many benefits of home care and our in-home nursing team can support a wide variety of services including:

  • Prescription medication management
  • IV management
  • Post-surgical recovery
  • Wound care
  • Catheter care
  • Ostomy management
  • Hospice care

The registered nurses (RNs) from Alliance will work with your family and the medical staff to ensure your loved ones are receiving the best care possible.

Home Health Aide

Home health aides are here to help with daily activities, and generally will not perform major nursing duties. While our home health aides have some experience in healthcare procedures, they are not always registered nurses. The responsibilities of home health aides are more related to supporting household and daily activities. These often include:

  • Dressing and grooming assistance
  • Bathing and toileting
  • Walking and movement
  • Exercise and physical therapy
  • Medication reminders
  • Meal preparation
  • Laundry
  • Light housekeeping
  • Trash removal
  • Companionship
  • Shopping

These services are designed for individuals who still are able to take care of most of their daily needs, but require some assistance, monitoring, and companionship.

Chronic Care

Chronic illness and pain often need specialized, long-term care to produce the best results. Our caregivers will help patients manage all of their needs so that they can enjoy life as much as possible. Some of the chronic diseases and conditions that our team can care for include:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • And more

Palliative End-Of-Life Care

When your loved ones are approaching an end-of-life transition, they deserve the utmost of care so that they are as comfortable as they can be and can enjoy their final days. The team at Alliance Homecare offers hospice and palliative care services throughout New York. Whether they live in a home, assisted living center, or hospital, we can be of assistance.
