This Licensed Home Care Services Agency (LHCSA), which cares for seniors and others in Rockville Centre, Oceanside, Garden City, Bellmore and Merrick, NY, puts all its caregivers through extensive cognitive, behavioral and personality testing that is rarely seen in the home care industry. The agency also has each of its aides undergo an extensive background check.

This process according to Rob Calarco, the agency’s owner and executive manager, is intended to make sure the families Brookside Home Care serves are provided with caregivers who both meet the most stringent of criteria and are most likely to be compatible with the elderly people they have been entrusted to care for. It comes with an understanding, said Calarco, that while such testing is not always perfect, it works far better than using a cookie cutter approach to match caregiver and patient.

In addition, Brookside Home Care demands that its caregivers, even experienced home health aides, have a minimum 15 hours of new training before they are placed in the home of a client. This includes providing all aides with regularly updated educational resources relating to the changing roles, responsibilities and challenges surrounding the care of elderly seniors. This training is frequently updated to keep up with the needs and demands of today’s home care clients.

“Our reputation is always on the line, which is why we place the same demands on our caregivers as we would expect for our own loved ones”, said Calarco. “Coping with Alzheimer’s and related dementia is a very difficult situation for an aging senior and their families”, he added, which is why he expects a personal home caregiver or home health aide from Brookside Home Care to be able to give clients both physical and emotional support. The agency’s caregivers are specially trained and updated to keep them in sync with best practices and modern care standards.

The Nassau county home care agency is on-call 24 hours per day, seven days per week to answer all questions and deal with any unforeseen issues that may arise. For both hourly and live-in care programs, Brookside Home Care creates customized plans that are tailored to the exact needs and requirements of each senior client.

The company’s senior home care services have a strong presence in Rockville Centre, Oceanside, Garden City and Merrick, NY among other local areas in Nassau County.
