Family First Home Opens New Satellite Office in Melville, N.Y.

Feb 14, 2014

BOHEMIA, NEW YORK -- Family First Home Companions, Long Island's leading home care agency, announces the opening of their new satellite location at 445 Broadhollow Road in Melville, N.Y. Owner and vice president of Family First, Jennifer Benjamin says that the new office will help the company provide their services to more communities that require senior care.

"In order to provide the best possible service to all of our clients, and to meet the increased demand for home companion services, we decided to open the Melville office," said Benjamin. "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."

In addition to opening a new office, Family First Companions also recently announced the launch of a new rehabilitation service called, "Home In A Hurry," which is a service that provides assistance to patients who are being discharged from a hospital or nursing facility. According to Ms. Benjamin, the new level of assistance that Home In A Hurry provides can be 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."

The Home In A Hurry program consists of two days of care by a professional caregiver for five hours per day. During this time the caregiver will ready the home by tending to household chores, doing the laundry, changing bed linens and doing the grocery shopping. In addition they will also pick up prescriptions, provide transportation to follow-up doctor appointments, assist with discharge instructions, help with bathing and dressing, prepare meals and provide walking assistance. The program 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.

Family First Home Companions is a full service home care agency that provides qualified, compassionate caregivers who help senior citizens maintain their independence, quality of life and peace of mind while still living in their own home.
