The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a great place to take your home care client because it provides a quiet and tranquil locale for lunch. You can join a guided tour around the grounds or simply take a leisurely stroll and observe the many different blooming flowers. Be sure to check the schedule for any upcoming events that could add extra excitement for both caregiver and senior. While most of the grounds are wheelchair accessible, the historic nature of the gardens leave some areas difficult to access.
Check the Brooklyn Botanic Garden schedule for hours of operation, but they are usually open in the morning and close in the late afternoon. The garden also offers senior discounts with free entry on certain days and at certain times. You can enter the garden on Eastern Parkway, Flatbush Avenue, and Washington Avenue. 718-623-7200.
If you want to take a slow, leisurely stroll with your home health care patient, why not go to Prospect Park? Whether it be in a sunny open field of green or on a nature walk through thick woods, the 150-year-old park is all about the scenery. You can take your senior on a tour around Prospect Park Lake, bring them to the dog park, rest from the afternoon sun under the shade of a tree, or simply explore all the sights and sounds in the area.
The park’s main entrance is located at Grand Army Plaza and is open from sunup to after sundown. 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 you need a fun, inexpensive trip for your home health care patient, the Prospect Park Zoo is the perfect spot. The zoo is relatively small, allowing you to move through the space rather quickly, but contains plenty of exhibits to make it worth the trip. The zoo is wheelchair accessible and is split into five sections, each one focusing on different parts of the animal kingdom, including sea lions, monkeys, birds, red pandas, reptiles, amphibians, and much more. There is a petting zoo and also a sea lion tank where guests can observe feeding time and watch the animals do tricks.
The Prospect Park Zoo is located at 450 Flatbush Avenue and is open from morning until late afternoon. This is the perfect zoo to take seniors to because they offer discounts and won’t expose them to too much commotion like some of the others in New York City. 718-399-7339.
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.
