person receiving care. This important step allows us to assess the situation/environment and further understand
the needs of your loved ones. After the consultation, we will search our pool of caregivers for the best possible
matches. We will then set up another meeting to conduct a “chemistry check” with you, the care receiver(s), and
two to three caregivers. During this meeting, you will get to know each other a bit and decide with whom you

Generally, our clients get along with their caregivers because we carefully match caregivers and clients based
on the client’s needs and preferences. Also, during the matching process, we usually introduce a client to at
least two caregivers so that they can choose who they would like to work with.
Each caregiver is thoroughly screened, trained, insured and bonded. Home Helpers NYC clients take comfort
in knowing that their loved one's care is being provided by our trustworthy caregivers.
We are a private pay home care agency, meaning that clients pay for the services themselves. Invoices can be
specifically set up to meet your needs. You can pay via check or credit card.
Our services are non-medical and therefore, do not generally qualify for payment through medicare/medicaid or
other types of medical insurance.

any issues that may arise while care is being provided.
