Non Senior Care Services
Before Mandy was born, Joe and Lois knew they had a special child with special needs. Mandy was diagnosed with Down Syndrome while Lois was still pregnant. But Mandy's condition has never affected her determined spirit and keen sense of independence. As she entered her twenties, it was this independence that allowed Joe and Lois to help their daughter to move into her own apartment a few blocks away. Mandy's parents knew that she needed a little more supervision and assistance than a typical young adult. They also knew that Mandy would become defiant if she felt her parents were checking on her too often. That's why Joe and Lois introduced Mandy to Erica.
Erica is a Right at Home caregiver that stops by Mandy's apartment to make sure that she doesn't need anything and that things are going well. Mandy loves Erica's visits. The two of them visit for a couple of hours every few days while Erica helps Mandy with things around the house or takes her shopping. The whole experience has strengthened the relationship between Mandy and her parents, as well.
Care Transitions Program
When your senior loved-one is discharged from the hospital, the effects of their condition aren't necessarily gone when once they return home. This often makes it difficult for seniors trying to adjust back to daily life, increasing the risk of re-admission. Right at Home's RightTransitions® program can help make the transition back to home easier.
Virtual Dementia Tour
Right at Home of Westchester County conducts the Virtual Dementia Tour® training for its Caregivers and the Community throughout the year. The Virtual Dementia Tour® (VDT®) helps those caring for someone with Dementia to identify with and understand his/her behavior. This unique, interactive program is proven to improve communication and care.
