In round-the-clock care, attention to detail is key.

In certain situations, extended supervision and care by a private nurse is essential. One example is someone returning home from the hospital after major surgery. Another is someone with a cardiac condition who need their vitals monitored. LifeWorx has private duty CNAs in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Many are even licensed in multiple states. And all are professionals in clinical care and ready to attend to a patient’s every need.

Our clients have trusted us for more than 15 years. You can, too.

Since we know that falls are the biggest risk, we take them seriously. Having served thousands of clients over the past 15 years, we have only had two falling incidences while in the care of a private duty nurse. In one situation, the nurse cared enough to get hurt in the process of saving the client from falling. We seek this level of care when hiring all of our caregivers. For this reason, our clients have trusted us for years.

We make our interview process rigorous for a reason. We see the true joy in caring, so we ensure that any private duty CNA we employ sees it, too. It’s an essential part of joining the LifeWorx team, even for non-medical home care team members.

We place a high value on compassion, warmth and the courage to do the right thing. Our CNAs are battle-tested. Our process intentionally rules out those looking for an easy job, way to check out all day or be on their phone.

Our clients tell it like it is.

Diane Goodman (April 2019)

"Quickly and easily found the perfect companion for my elderly mother who has some dementia. The caregiver is bright, responsible, caring and flexible. My mother can't stop talking about how lovely she is."

Alicja S., South Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY (October 2016)

"LifeWorx really works! Both girls, Ela & Jeanne are very professional and helpful human beings.
They were engaged in whole process - from begging to the end. "Smart fit"" system is perfect. I got a job after my first interview and I couldn't be happier with it. Girls are not only do that right, they are also CARE! 100% recommended"

Sara A., Manhattan, Upper East Side (November 2017)

"I visited LifeWorx last week with my mother. I was looking for some help for my elderly mother as my sisters and I all live out of town. My youngest sister visited and met Bal a few weeks before and said he was wonderful. I have never written a review on Yelp before, but I felt compelled to do so after meeting Bal and his staff. If you're looking for help for an elderly person, you could do no better than LifeWorx. There is a genuine warmth in Bal and a sincere desire to provide the best and most apt services possible. His attitude trickles down; everyone we met was warm, engaging, competent, and obviously devoted to providing excellent care. If you live out of town and need to entrust the care of a parent to a stranger (and how scary is that!), LifeWorx is going to be your lifesaver. One more thing-it is often not an easy task to communicate with an organization in NYC. Lifeworx is different. They respond almost immediately to email and are extremely responsible and diligent in their communication. It is gratifying to know that a business like this exists."

Karen P., Greenwich Village, Manhattan, NY (February 2015)

"I moved back to New York City 9 or so months ago and knew I needed help. I came back to a big job with lots of travel and lots of hours. I've used different cleaning services before, but they never offered consistency. With all the moving parts on my side, I needed someone to really understand my needs and take care of everything. After some research, I went with LifeWorx. They listened to all of my needs. They presented me with 3 candidates who all seemed capable. One was into organizing, and that put her over the top in my book as I need all the help I can get there. So my part time housekeeper comes on a set couple of days each week. She knows my routine. Together we keep the household running. She takes care of dry cleaning, which is a big time saver. She lets me know when we need more supplies. Having her on a set schedule allows me to have repairs or deliveries that I normally would have had to work from home to accommodate - which is a big deal with my schedule. She does a great job keeping everything clean. To boot, she's become a bit of a part time nanny to my 2 adorable & very friendly cats. Jeanne has been a pleasure to work with as the GM. She follows up when needed a keeps it all running smooth. If you need someone to help keep your house and a bit of your life in order when you're busy working in overdrive, LifeWorxs is great."

Cc L. (January 2016)

"I can't say enough about how wonderful this team have been to work with. I needed a new nanny on short notice and they sent me qualified candidates who were by far the most impressive I saw from any other agency or referral.  Efficient, professional, accommodating and they delivered, you can't ask for more than that.  I would not hesitate to recommend them and they are head and shoulders above other agencies I worked with.
Great job!"

Jackie S. Old Greenwich, CT (February 2019)

“LifeWorx has been steadfast in providing superior care for my 90 year old father for over 3+ years now. We have the utmost confidence in everyone who walks through his door. The aides quickly become "family" and always go the extra mile to make sure that all of my father's needs are met and more importantly, they are able to anticipate what will be needed next and they prepare for it. Barbara is very responsive. I am not sure that I have ever worked with anyone who is more so! She always responds to me almost immediately and is a key piece to our entire system working as well as it does. You simply cannot do better than LifeWorx!”

Tim Leonard (May 2019)

"I have an elderly mother who needed caregivers eventually 24/7 and Lifeworx really went above and beyond getting us through this transition. They took care of recruitment, sent me the bio's prior to my interviewing the candidates, and handled all the payroll taxes, licensing etc. All I pay is an hourly rate on my credit card. I've used other homecare companies with terrible results since they simply provide the personnel without any regard to my mother's likes or dislikes. They're like a car service, whereas Lifeworx works with you to tailor the solution to my mother's needs. Eldercare is hard enough as it is, but having Lifeworx as part of the solution is a blessing."

Maria M-Washington Township, NJ (December 2018)

“In the midst of all the chaos of your daily job, know that you and your staff make a difference in the lives of both family and patients. You will be making a very sad situation less of a burden.
Glad we found you…..”

Lynne Barasch, Highland, CA (May 2019)

"Lifeworx is a very reliable service. I just hired full time care for my elderly mom. Brian sent us several profiles to review and we chose a few for in person interviews and picked a wonderful competent caring woman to move in with my mom. And another wonderful woman for weekends. All good so far."

Jennifer & Peter, Bedford Corners, NY

“LifeWorx has provided our family an incredible sense of comfort knowing that our children will be well taken care of and loved! Thank you to the LifeWorx team for working with our family to ensure both our nanny and children are happy and safe.”
