Manhattan is a place like none other. An incredible mix of people, culture, food, performance, and unique neighborhoods that becomes a part of us. It is no wonder that so many older adults want to remain here, in their homes, as they age.
Our senior home care services can allow you or your loved one to live safely and comfortably at home, while also keeping you connected with the City you love.
Providing great home care services is about more than just the basics. Our caregivers can provide support for many of the common daily activities, such as meal preparation, grocery shopping, and help around the home. But they can also be there to provide true companion care. That could mean taking an art class together at the New York Historical Society in the Upper West Side or attending a discussion across the Park at the Met in the Upper East Side. There are countless opportunities for meaningful activities both in the home and around the City.
For seniors in Manhattan facing the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, we offer highly personalized care plans and well-matched caregivers. Our plans will often incorporate many of the great programs and resources available in the City to provide more engagement and support.
Institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lincoln Center, and the Museum of Modern Art offer specialized programs that are accessible for seniors with cognitive impairment. And there are numerous opportunities for art, culture, discussion, music, movement & dance, and other meaningful activities.
Here are just some of the neighborhoods we service:
When she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s many things started to blur, aside from her love for the city and deep-rooted memory of her upper east side neighborhood, Central Park, the theater, etc. Not only did the companions assigned keep my mother in the apartment and city that she loved, but they kept her engaged, safe and Covid-free. I recommend Duet to anyone seeking a hybrid between an aide and a friend.
My mother is 95 years old and lives alone in a Greenwich Village apartment. She’s grateful every day for the support she receives from her caregivers provided by Duet. Her aversion to having strangers in her home was replaced by sincere admiration and mutually friendly relations with her caregivers who she now depends on. Her quality of life greatly improved, and she appreciated this service as new needs became apparent.
Duet was part of our lives for three years as my elderly mother required more and more care. I cannot say enough about the women that came into my mother’s home and befriended her as well providing necessary services. As a daughter living out-of-state with a mother living alone in Manhattan, I needed to trust an agency and its personnel from afar. Duet never let me down!
