If you or a loved one are recovering from an illness and need assistance by a qualified companion at home, in a nursing home, assisted living facility or hospital for the short or long term, Care Connection will provide you with someone who is loving and trustworthy. Care Connection draws from a wide pool of skilled and experienced companions. Many come to us through reputable referral sources and may have extensive training and certification as home health aides, personal care aides or nursing assistants. Because a large number of our companions drive, they can easily get to individuals in all areas of Long Island and NYC. Companions are briefed about the health, dietary needs, interests and hobbies of each client so they can encourage the client to heal properly giving the family peace of mind. If the companion observes a change in the health status or a medical emergency arises, they follow the specific guidelines set by Care Connection.
