As part of the nation’s leading franchise specializing in comprehensive home care for seniors, new mothers and other individuals needing recuperative and continuing care, Home Helpers & Direct Link of the Meadowlands began serving the local community in January.
Smith is no stranger to hard work. Born in Queens, New York, he spent over 22 years with the MTA-New York City Transit system. Additionally, he has 25 years of experience successfully investing in various properties, including housing for seniors. Smith enjoyed assisting those in need at his senior properties, and realized that there was an increasing demand for housing, care and services for seniors. It was this need – and his awareness that his own elderly parents and those of his friends were also joining this growing population– that led him to invest in a Home Helpers business.
“At Home Helpers of the Meadowlands, we strive to deliver the same quality of care we’d expect for our own families while offering clients a more affordable alternative to assisted living or nursing care facilities,”
Home Helpers offers free in-home consultations and works with clients one-on-one to tailor a flexible care plan to meet their specific needs and budgets. Services offered include companionship, light housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation, and medication management through Direct Link.
Direct Link’s exclusive line of medical alert systems are monitored 24/7 by a CSAA 5-Diamond Certified Care Center, enabling seniors to live independently at home for as long as safely possible. The Direct Link product suite includes land-line and cellular personal emergency response systems (PERS), automated medication dispensers, GPS client-tracking Care Watch and remote vital signs monitoring units. If a Direct Link unit is activated or a reading is abnormal, the device alerts Home Helpers’ staff, 911 or any pre-established contacts, thereby easing family anxieties and maximizing client independence.
“In a society where family members frequently live hundreds of miles from each other, Home Helpers & Direct Link can step in to fill the roles of a good neighbor and close family friend,” Smith said. “Because our clients decide how often they need us and what services they would like for us to provide for them, it allows Home Helpers & Direct Link to offer affordable and convenient choices based on client specific requirements.”
