Online PR News – 13-February-2014 – Bohemia/New York – Family First Home Companions, the leading home care agency on Long Island, announces the opening of a satellite location at 445 Broadhollow Road in Melville, N.Y. Jennifer Benjamin, owner and vice president of Family First, says that the new office will help the company provide their services to more communities that require senior care. "We believe that this office will provide faster service and easier access for home care services for seniors located in the Huntington NORC (naturally occurring retirement community), Plainview NORC, and the Town of Hempstead NORC," said Ms. Benjamin.
The new office isn't the only news events happening at Family First Companions. The company also recently announced the launch of a new rehabilitation service called, "Home In A Hurry," a program that that provides assistance to patients who are being discharged from a hospital or nursing facility. The new level of assistance that Home In A Hurry provides is an essential element in transitioning senior citizens back into their home safely and effectively. "The first few days can be the hardest for senior citizens and their families when they are released from the hospital or nursing facility. Our new program helps them get settled safely and ensures that they don't return to the hospital," said Benjamin.
The Home In A Hurry program consists of two days of care by a professional caregiver for five hours per day. The caregiver will ready the home by tending to household chores, doing the laundry, changing bed linens and doing the grocery shopping. Home In A Hurry also includes a free home safety evaluation by a trained caregiver who will evaluate the home for potential safety hazards and offer recommendations to make the home more adaptable for the well-being of the returning patient.
