for the Elderly and Disabled

"With such dependable, professional help, my husband is able to feel secure in his own home, and he is improving every day. With many thanks to you and the Neighbors Home Care Services."

Who We Serve

The elderly and the disabled of Westchester County.

Why There Is a Need

Many people in Westchester County live at home but do not have the capability to participate in the daily activities that most of us take for granted. Some are elderly and simply need help preparing meals, taking medications or getting to and from appointments. Others are bedridden or homebound and need 24-hour care.  All want to remain in the comfort of their homes.

Statistics show that almost 15% of Westchester residents are 65 years or older, higher than the national average of 13%.
