Our Brighton, NY senior home care services support healthy and happy aging in place in the greater Brighton area. Just as every person and family situation is unique, our in-home care is personalized for maximum positive impact. The elder care services described in this section are among the most prevalent supports requested by families for their loved ones.
Touching Hearts in-home care service niche is non-medical in nature and is called “companion care”. Our senior companions can do MANY things that enable elders to remain at home as long as possible. However, they are not home health aides or nurses, so they are not permitted to provide direct “hands on” care such as bathing and toileting (though we can provide “stand by assistance” for these activities). Likewise, we cannot directly perform hand-feeding, wound care, weight bearing transfers or medication administration (though we can do medication reminders and tracking).
Some Brighton trivia: The Town of Brighton is located on the southeast border of the city of Rochester and was originally settled around 1790, and formally established in 1814, thus earning it recognition as one of the oldest towns in Monroe County. The Erie Canal courses through Brighton, accompanied by the Erie Canal Heritage Trail, one of the longest continuous stretches of maintained off-road trail in the USA.
Our senior companions are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Services can be requested “as needed” or pre-scheduled. We can respond quickly to schedule changes driven by our clients’ circumstances.
