New York Respite and Low Cost Home Health Care Assistance


Respite care is short-term care provided by a trained companion in order to give caregivers of the homebound temporary relief from their duties. This allows for caregivers to have a short break so that they can do tasks outside the home without worrying about the one for whom they care. Counties and other organizations have programs that provide respite care at reasonable costs. Most assisted living facilities also offer private respite care for families who may need a place for their loved one to stay for an extended period of time. Stays can range from three days to one month. You can learn more by visiting our assisted living section and contacting a facility near you.

There are organizations that also provide low cost home health care assistance. These programs may require income and asset eligibility. For more information, see the following links below. View a list of all home care agencies.
