Home Health Care

 

The Home Care Department of Family Service Society of Yonkers (FSSY) Is licensed by the New York State Department of Health and accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).

 

Located in southwest Yonkers, FSSY serves the frail elderly and disabled throughout Westchester County and the Bronx.  By providing Home Care Aides, Nurses and Social Workers, FSSY’s multicultural, multilingual staff is able to assist patients with their wish to remain in their home and community.

 

In collaboration with various government and private agencies, the dedicated staff of FSSY is acutely sensitive to the special needs of the aging and homebound population.

 

The Healthcare Team is available for consultation and emergencies on a twenty-four hour, seven day a week basis.

 

In addition to providing Home Care services, FSSY offers free Personal Care Aide and Home Health Aide Training Programs, each approved by the New York State Department of Health.  Students learn the theory and practice of home care and are transitioned into the field setting under the supervision of a professional nurse.
