Joint Commission Accreditation

The Joint Commission is widely recognized as the highest standard in healthcare accreditation. Having a nationally renowned third-party accreditation agency certify our home care agency distinguishes Edison as a trusted choice for home care services.

Local Offices throughout NY State

Maintaining adequate staffing is one of the most important aspects of ensuring consistent, quality care. If an aide needs to take a day off, it is important to have replacement aides available to cover. Edison maintains numerous offices strategically placed throughout New York state to ensure that we have adequate staffing.

Areas where Edison has office locations include: Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens (Ridgewood, Jamaica, and Far Rockaway), Woodmere (Nassau County), Yonkers (Westchester County), Spring Valley (Rockland County), and Buffalo. See LOCATIONS for a detailed list of all our offices.

Certified Trained Aides

It may come as a surprise to a consumer researching options for home care assistance that not everyone advertising services provides certified trained aides. At Edison Home Health Care, all of our aides maintain currently valid Home Health Aide or Personal Care Aide certification. This ensures that all aides receive training on how to properly provide care.

Registered Nurses on Staff

We maintain full-time registered nurses on staff. Having our patient care services monitored by true healthcare professionals ensures the quality of the home care assistance we provide. It is important for a consumer to know that not everyone advertising home care services maintains even one registered nurse on staff. This can be a scary thought, especially if the patient has a chronic medical condition or has previously had a fall.

Medical & Background Checks

All of our employees undergo both medical and criminal background checks before they are allowed to provide home care services for a consumer. Taking these measures are important steps to help ensure the safety and well-being of the patients we care for. Knowing we are taking these steps provides comfort and peace of mind for our patients and their family members.

Multilingual Staff

Communication is a critical component in ensuring that patients receive adequate and proper care. Our office staff and home health aides speak numerous languages. This ensures that consumers receive care from people that can communicate in the language they are most comfortable speaking. Some of the languages that our staff speaks include English, Spanish, Chinese (Cantonese & Mandarin), Russian, Hungarian, and Hebrew.

Assistance Accessing Care

One of aspects most overlooked by consumers researching home care agencies, is what sort of assistance the agency provides its clients when it comes to accessing care. It is not an exaggeration to say that this is sometimes the most important feature of an agency for some consumers as look to obtain care.

The home care agency a consumer chooses can be the difference between them receiving care within a few days or a waiting for months to receive care! It can be the difference between them receiving a few hours of care for 2-3 weeks, and them receiving coverage for up to 24 hours a day of home care for the long-term.

You may wonder, how can such vast discrepancies exist? The answer lies in the complexities that persist in today’s home care system with regards to the different types of home care providers, widespread misinformation on eligibility rules for coverage, and some companies’ lack of experience applying for coverage from insurance.
