Our Care Services
ACS Home Care LLC provides unparalleled professional home care and elder care services in the greater New York area.
We help those in need to remain independent in their own home, when possible, and also provide care at nursing homes, hospitals and other care facilities. We offer flexible scheduling to accommodate each individual's unique situation.
ACS' caregivers can be retained on a live-in or hourly basis. Perhaps you need just a few hours a week to assist with bathing and other routine activities or maybe you require 24 hour a day care/7 days per week? Whatever the situation is, ACS can assist in providing the right caregiver.
Alzheimer's Care Services
We assign a Nurse Case Manager to meet with each new client suffering from cognitive impairment to perform an assessment of their specific needs before our professional caregiver becomes involved.
Once we have a clear understanding of what stage of the illness the client is at, we then initiate a personal care plan for our trained caregiver to follow. This personal care plan, approved by the patient's physician, serves as a guide so that we may supervise the care we are providing and ensure that we are meeting the client’s changing needs.
This personal care plan includes an activities program for clients with cognitive impairment. Depending on the stage of the disease, these activities cover such areas as creative art, daily living skills, physical activities and sensory activities. Each activity in the program is flexible, allowing each client to experience the best possible success and enjoyment at their capability level.
Our professional caregivers are highly skilled in caring for clients with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Having successfully completed the Dementia Care Training Program created by the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, they have all earned the designation of "Qualified Dementia Care Specialist." In addition, all ACS Aides are insured, bonded and undergo an extensive background check.
