Overview

Atria Home Care is a subsidiary of Atria Senior Living that proudly provides services to those in need of care in New York City, Queens, the Bronx, Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties. We offer a complete range of personal support, nursing and companionship services available 24/7. Our clients receive one-on-one care from certified caregivers, all in the privacy and comfort of their house, hotel or senior living community. All of our caregivers must be certified as a home health aide (HHA) or personal care aide (PCA) by the State of New York, and are directed and supervised by a registered nurse. Once hired, we carefully train each caregiver to meet our standards of quality and service and enroll them in continuing education programs, including fire safety, emergency procedures, client rights and infection control. We also take the time to gather information from our caregivers – from hobbies to second languages to cooking specialties – so we can match residents with caregivers who meet their needs on a practical and personal level.
