What must I do to begin services?

Getting started is easy.  Simply call the telephone number for your area of New York City or Long Island and speak with our service coordinator who will help you begin the process.  She will arrange for an assessment by a registered nurse, who will meet with you and your family and provide a Plan of Care tailored to your individual needs.  The coordinator will arrange for a home health aide to be assigned based upon those needs.

Additionally, each new employee must attend an orientation given by president Phyllis Ettinger, who gives final approval to the employment.
