EAC Network’s Senior Respite program is excited to announce its expansion of in-home caregiver services to Long Beach and the surrounding areas of Island Park, Oceanside, and East Rockaway. The program provides a caring and trusted companion to stay with a family member for brief periods when familial caregivers can’t be there.
“We are so excited to be expanding to the Long Beach community,” says Carol O’Neill, Senior Director of Senior & Nutritional Services. “Caregivers need a break, too, and we’re proud to offer services that ease the challenges of senior care.”
EAC Network has 30 years of experience supporting Nassau County caregivers by offering trained, screened, and reliable companions to visit your family member once a week for up to 6 hours. Senior Respite also provides free comprehensive in-home assessments by a registered nurse, as well as on-going monitoring and support by professional staff.
Respite eases caregiver burden and enhances the life of vulnerable older adults.
