This 718-acre park is located near the New York Botanical Garden and Bronx Zoo, but still provides the peace and seclusion your home care patient might desire. The Park has many places to walk and discover new and interesting sights, like the picturesque scene of water running under a bridge or a beautiful waterfall. Inscription plaques from the 1900s are scattered throughout the park and two gorgeously-designed fountains give a sense of history. Be sure to check the weather before you go. Bring plenty of water with you in the summer and bundle up in the winter.
If your home care patient has a thrill for adventure, the Bronx Zoo would be a great activity. The park is a big place, but don’t think you have to make it to every exhibit because there is still a lot to see everywhere you turn. The Zoo has lions, tigers, bears, giraffes, sea lions, birds, gorillas, and so much more. Guests can also watch the sea lions and penguins during feeding time.
Senior discounts and discounts for online purchases are available. There are places to sit and rest while enjoying the animals and all park transportation, including the Wild Asia Monorail and Zoo Shuttle, is wheelchair accessible. Be sure to contact the park for any other questions you might have about bringing your senior to the zoo. 718-220-5103.
Situated on a 250-acre plot of land, the New York Botanical Garden is a fantastic trip to go on with your home care patient at any time of the year. There are many points of interest throughout the garden. Be sure to check their website before you visit in order to see what exhibitions are currently on display and which plants are in bloom.
The grounds are wheelchair accessible with wheelchair lifts onsite and rentals available with a photo ID. They offer tram tours, audio tours, assisted guided tours, and even sign language tours once a month. The New York Botanical Garden also offers senior discounts. 718-817-8700.
I would like to express my gratitude for your great service. The attendant you sent to me, Olga, is a caring, loving, dedicated and devoted person.
I was visiting Parker this week and had an opportunity to meet Mireille and observe her in action. I was very, very happy to see the care she takes of my uncle.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for your unstinting help in taking care of my father. I can’t overstate what a difference it has made in his life.
I writing you to let you know my satisfaction with the service that my mother Matilda S. and I have received from your Patient Advocate Tanya. We were without an aide on Sunday, October 12, no one was scheduled, or aide said no one told her, the coordinator said she did.
We would like to thank Edison Home Health Care’s amazing staff for taking such wonderful care of our grandmother. Two years ago, she suffered a stroke, rendering her immobile.
I am a social worker at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in NYC. I first learned of Edison Home Health Care through a patient, who specifically requested that I arrange for a home attendant through Edison, given its strong reputation.
I am writing this letter to let you know how I feel about my home attendant, Ms. Grant, who is with me seven days a week. Let me emphasize some of her qualities and explain what makes her an amazing home health aide (“HHA”).
My mother suffered a traumatic brain injury ten years ago, which sadly caused her severe physical, mental and emotional disabilities. While she requires constant care, she is not an easy person to live with – she can explode out of nowhere, lashing out at those around her, and often shouts and cries incoherently.
It is my immense pleasure to inform you that my family is very pleased with Guerli Jean as a caregiver for my mom Gertrude Mercado. My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimers/Dementia three years ago and it has been difficult on the family.
