Our Services

Expert Home Health Care, Household Support and Companionship

Belvedere Home Care supports all aspects of a person’s life, including traditional home health care services such as home health aides and nurses. Our services go above and beyond what other home health care agencies provide!

Our highly trained caregiver team has specialized training in a wide range of illnesses and disabilities. We work on flexible schedules and levels of care that accommodate any person.

Our caregivers can assist those with physical illness or disease, cognitive challenges, intellectual disabilities, the elderly and those who are recovering from surgery or need temporary medical assistance in the home.

Our staff includes:

  • Registered Nurses
  • Licensed Practical Nurses
  • Home Health Aides
  • Personal Care Aides

We’ll work to match you up with the members of our staff who are experienced in your area of needed care and who can best fulfill your needs.

Companionship and Household Support

Sometimes all someone needs to feel better is a friendly face and some warm conversation. Belvedere Home Care Companions enjoy spending time with our clients while also providing daily housework tasks that may be difficult for senior clients or those with limited mobility,

Companions are available for:

  • Social/Interpersonal tasks including:
    • Spending quality time with your loved one
    • Chatting and listening
    • Playing board/card games
    • Transportation to doctor appointments and other outings
    • Help with scheduling appointments
  • Daily household tasks including:
    • Planning/preparing meals
    • Light housekeeping
    • Laundry and changing bed linens
    • Shopping and running errands
    • Medication reminders
    • Assistance with pet care

Palliative Care Support

Any person who experiences chronic pain and discomfort due to a disease, accident or life-limiting illness is entitled to relief. While palliative care is most often associated with hospice care, any person is eligible for pain management services at any stage of illness, even while they are undergoing treatment or therapies.

Palliative care is about improving the person’s quality of life. Any person who feels their quality of life is compromised by pain is eligible for our palliative care program.

24-Hour Care

Belvedere Home Care provides 24-hour care for seniors and other adults with medical issues or disabilities. Our 24-hour caregivers can provide all of the services that a home health aide, personal care aide or companion can do, but will stay for extended periods at your home.

For those who only need overnight services, we can accommodate that schedule. Round-the-clock care offers family caregivers the opportunity for a good night’s sleep knowing that trained, professional caregivers are on the job, day and night.

Daily Health Maintenance

The need for routine testing and care shouldn’t prevent your loved one from staying in their own home.

Our staff is trained to provide a wide range of everyday care, testing and monitoring to track your loved one’s health. This allows them to stay in their home and be comfortable in a familiar setting when they need only brief daily visits to fulfill their health needs.

Our nurses and aides can provide services including:

  • Glucose testing
  • Post-surgical care
  • Wound care
  • Change dressings
  • Teach and manage ostomy/colostomy care
  • Give injections
  • Manage urinary catheters
  • Manage medication and talk to doctors or pharmacists
  • Provide education to clients and families

Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care

Belvedere Home Care makes it possible for your loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia to stay home in a comfortable, familiar environment and keep their habits and schedule.

The Belvedere Home Care staff are knowledgeable and specially trained to care for the needs of clients with cognitive challenges, including:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Dementia
  • Stroke

It can be difficult for families to ask for outside help, but a professional, experienced caregiver can help dementia clients stay in their own homes longer.

Hospital Sitting

When a loved one is hospitalized, it can be scary to walk away from their bedside and leave them without the comfort of a familiar face or a hand to hold.

Belvedere Home Care offers hospital sitter services, so you'll have a trained caregiver to advocate for the client and relay vital information from the hospital staff when you or your family are unable to be there. While a hospital sitter cannot provide medical care or administer medication in the hospital setting, they are the voice, eyes and ears of the client and their family.

We can also help transition a person from hospital to home, providing care post-surgery or other medical incidences. Our staff is trained to assess and create a safe home environment and to monitor the person for any changes in their health or progress that may require follow-up or emergency treatment.

Hospital care sitters can also tend to clients in nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and assisted living residences.

Therapy Assistance

Anyone who is going through physical therapy, occupational therapy or other rehabilitative therapies can use a supportive team.

Belvedere Home Care caregivers offer assistance in completing and tracking required exercises and other aspects of a client’s prescribed therapy routines. We’re also there to encourage clients to reach their full potential every day and to celebrate their successes. Our caregivers can also provide transportation for therapy appointments and keep families informed about the client’s progress.

Post-Surgical Home Care Support

Following surgery, whether minor or major, people often face a challenging list of orders and limitations. Belvedere Home Care can be there through recovery to help with anything a person can’t – or shouldn’t – do, per doctor’s orders.

We can do everything from dress wounds and monitor vital signs to prepare meals, perform housekeeping and assist with pet care. Caregivers can help the person move safely, dress, bathe, or perform exercises or therapies recommended by the medical team. We also provide 24-hour care and overnight care.

Belvedere caregivers can provide transportation to follow-up appointments and report back to families with recommendations, progress and changes in treatment.

Stroke & Brain Injury Care

After an initial hospitalization and rehabilitation, it can be a long road to recovery for stroke and brain injury clients. Belvedere Home Care helps stroke and brain injury care clients recover at their own pace, in their own home, working toward greater independence.

Our innovative Traumatic Brain Injury and Waiver Program reflects the gold standard of care. Our Clinical Services Director Tim Feeney is one of the architects of the New York State waiver program, which offers an extensive array of fully covered services for eligible patients to encourage a better quality of life and more full recovery. These services are also offered on a fee-for-service basis.

Our highly trained staff works with the client’s healthcare team to develop a mutually agreed-upon care plan, and we can adjust the level and frequency of our services as is appropriate for the client’s level of recovery.

Belvedere Home Care staff will:

  • Monitor blood pressure and other vital signs
  • Monitor recovery progress
  • Help identify risk factors for another stroke
  • Help follow through with prescribed rehab activities
  • Proved 24-hour care and overnight care as needed
  • Assist with personal care including bathing, dressing, grooming, etc.
  • Give injections
  • Manage urinary catheters
  • Help with everyday activities
  • Manage medication administration

Long-Distance Family Reassurance

Few things are more stressful than having to be away from a family member when they are ill, recovering from surgery or living with a chronic or life-limiting disease.

Belvedere Home Care caregivers can not only provide expert and compassionate care for your loved one; they will provide distant family members with reports and updates on the client’s condition and progress. Our caregivers communicate with the client's health team not only to be fully prepared for every aspect of care but also to keep families fully informed on a regular, ongoing basis.

If you have to be away, Belvedere can help you feel closer.

    You feel like you’re part of their family. And you are family. You’re with family. And you’re family with everybody you come in contact with in this organization.

    I like to be free. And do my own things, and my own thoughts, so with that realization I just reached out and tried to do something to help me. All the things I need, Belvedere will do for me. It makes me very happy.

    My reward is just knowing that I helped someone take that other step to become independent. That’s the best reward. That’s my only reward.
