Since 1986, Health Services of Northern New York, a New York State Certified Home Healthcare Agency (CHHA) in St. Lawrence County, has provided a full range of home health services including short term/acute care and long term assistance. We provide in-home care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance and private pay.
“Home care” encompasses a broad spectrum of both health and social services that can be delivered in a more comfortable home environment to persons who are disabled, chronically ill or recovering from an illness. These services include the traditional core of professional nursing and home care aide services as well as physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medical social services and nutritional services. All of our co-workers are screened during the hiring process and background checks are performed to ensure the security and safety of our clients.
Recent studies have shown that people improve and recover faster at home than in institutions. For instance, when chemotherapy is required for treatment of cancer, the smaller doses that can be administered at home cause fewer adverse reactions than massive doses delivered in hospital settings. Also, surveys consistently validate the fact that whenever people have a choice, they prefer home care.
Home care services are provided for people of all ages. A significant percentage of older people electing to live independently are taking advantage of home care services instead of spending their last years in a nursing home. Younger adults who are disabled or recovering from acute illness are choosing to be cared for at home whenever possible. Infants and children requiring even the most sophisticated treatment for serious childhood illness are often able to return to loving families and a secure home environment, thanks to advanced technology and pediatric home care services.
If you reside in St. Lawrence County, we can help you. Please contact our office and we can help you with your homecare needs: Call 315-265-4065 to speak with one of our nurses on our intake team. We are available 24 hours a day. In most cases, we will conduct an in-home assessment within 24 hours.
Each of our patients is assigned an experienced, caring Registered Nurse Case Manager who specializes in their specific needs. RN Case Managers conduct patient and environmental assessments and coordinate between all health care team members, including the physician.
