WHO WE ARE

LifeWorx Can Help With Your Family with Long Term Care

When‌ ‌someone‌ ‌requires‌ ‌care‌ ‌that‌ ‌is‌ ‌not‌ ‌medical‌ ‌in‌ ‌nature,‌ ‌it’s‌ ‌called‌ ‌private‌ ‌home‌ ‌care‌ ‌or‌ ‌a‌ ‌private‌ ‌caregiver.‌ ‌In‌ ‌many‌ ‌cases,‌ ‌our‌ ‌clients‌ ‌request‌ ‌a‌ ‌live-in‌ ‌caregiver.‌ ‌LifeWorx‌ ‌can‌ ‌provide‌ ‌all‌ ‌of‌ ‌your‌ ‌private‌ ‌home‌ ‌care‌ ‌needs.‌

People‌ ‌who‌ ‌can‌ ‌benefit‌ ‌from‌ ‌a‌ ‌private‌ ‌home‌ ‌care‌ ‌include‌ ‌those‌ ‌with‌ ‌mild‌ ‌dementia,‌ ‌frailty,‌ ‌depression,‌ ‌or‌ ‌loss‌ ‌of‌ ‌faculty.‌ ‌Sometimes,‌ ‌they‌ ‌may‌ ‌just‌ ‌need‌ ‌someone‌ ‌to‌ ‌converse‌ ‌with‌ ‌or‌ ‌help‌ ‌with‌ ‌household‌ ‌management‌ ‌needs.‌ ‌No‌ ‌matter‌ ‌your‌ ‌family’s‌ ‌specific‌ ‌needs,‌ ‌we‌ ‌can‌ ‌provide‌ ‌home‌ ‌care.‌ ‌

LifeWorx‌ ‌private‌ ‌caregivers‌ ‌are‌ ‌available‌ ‌for‌ ‌as‌ ‌little‌ ‌as‌ ‌a‌ ‌few‌ ‌hours‌ ‌per‌ ‌day‌ ‌or‌ ‌as‌ ‌much‌ ‌as‌ ‌live-in‌ ‌when‌ ‌needed.‌ ‌In‌ ‌addition‌ ‌to‌ ‌taking‌ ‌care‌ ‌of‌ ‌basic‌ ‌household‌ ‌chores‌ ‌like‌ ‌cooking‌ ‌and‌ ‌cleaning,‌ ‌they‌ ‌provide‌ ‌conversation‌ ‌and‌ ‌companionship,‌ ‌accompanying‌ ‌your‌ ‌loved‌ ‌one‌ ‌on‌ ‌errands‌ ‌and‌ ‌to‌ ‌lunches,‌ ‌dinners,‌ ‌and‌ ‌shows.‌ ‌They‌ ‌can‌ ‌also‌ ‌communicate‌ ‌with‌ ‌other‌ ‌family‌ ‌
members‌ ‌to‌ ‌let‌ ‌them‌ ‌know‌ ‌how‌ ‌your‌ ‌loved‌ ‌one‌ ‌is‌ ‌doing,‌ ‌imparting‌ ‌joy‌ ‌and‌ ‌peace‌ ‌of‌ ‌mind‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌individual‌ ‌and‌ ‌his/her‌ ‌relatives.‌ ‌

Most‌ ‌elders‌ ‌want‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌fairly‌ ‌independent‌ ‌and‌ ‌will‌ ‌welcome‌ ‌live-in‌ ‌care‌ ‌only‌ ‌if‌ ‌they‌ ‌feel‌ ‌good‌ ‌about‌ ‌the‌ ‌chemistry.‌ ‌That’s‌ ‌why,‌ ‌at‌ ‌LifeWorx,‌ ‌we‌ ‌focus‌ ‌on‌ ‌finding‌ ‌a‌ ‌private‌ ‌caregiver‌ ‌who‌ ‌really‌ ‌“clicks”‌ ‌with‌ ‌your‌ ‌loved‌ ‌one.‌ ‌We‌ ‌assess‌ ‌the‌ ‌caregiver’s‌ ‌communications‌ ‌skills,‌ ‌as‌ ‌well‌ ‌as‌ ‌the‌ ‌activities‌ ‌they‌ ‌can‌ ‌offer‌ ‌your‌ ‌loved‌ ‌one,‌ ‌like‌ ‌playing‌ ‌word‌ ‌games‌ ‌and‌ ‌cards,‌ ‌or‌ ‌suggesting‌ ‌films‌ ‌to‌ ‌watch‌ ‌together.‌ ‌We‌ ‌are‌ ‌careful‌ ‌to‌ ‌suggest‌ ‌caregivers‌ ‌who‌ ‌will‌ ‌not‌ ‌only‌ ‌keep‌ ‌your‌ ‌senior‌ ‌safe,‌ ‌but‌ ‌also‌ ‌entertained‌ ‌and‌ ‌occupied.‌ ‌For‌ ‌example,‌ ‌our‌ ‌patented‌ ‌software‌ ‌enables‌ ‌us‌ ‌to‌ ‌search‌ ‌for‌ ‌a‌ ‌strong‌ ‌male‌ ‌caregiver‌ ‌who‌ ‌is‌ ‌an‌ ‌expert‌ ‌in‌ ‌playing‌ ‌chess.‌ ‌We‌ ‌know‌ ‌that‌ ‌when‌ ‌it‌ ‌comes‌ ‌to‌ ‌24-hour‌ ‌care,‌ ‌attention‌ ‌to‌ ‌detail‌ ‌is‌ ‌critical.‌ ‌

If‌ ‌your‌ ‌loved‌ ‌one‌ ‌needs‌ ‌private‌ ‌home‌ ‌care‌ ‌but‌ ‌is‌ ‌resistant‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌idea,‌ ‌we‌ ‌recommend‌ ‌starting‌ ‌small‌ ‌and‌ ‌getting‌ ‌him‌ ‌or‌ ‌her‌ ‌deeply‌ ‌involved‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌selection‌ ‌process.‌ ‌Many‌ ‌times,‌ ‌families‌ ‌try‌ ‌to‌ ‌dictate‌ ‌what‌ ‌should‌ ‌be‌ ‌done‌ ‌for‌ ‌their‌ ‌elder‌ ‌without‌ ‌getting‌ ‌his‌ ‌or‌ ‌her‌ ‌consent.‌ ‌They‌ ‌figure‌ ‌he‌ ‌or‌ ‌she‌ ‌will‌ ‌simply‌ ‌go‌ ‌along‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌change,‌ ‌but‌ ‌this‌ ‌generally‌ ‌backfires.‌ ‌Why?‌ ‌Because‌ ‌seniors‌ ‌are‌ ‌smarter—and‌ ‌more‌ ‌stubborn—than‌ ‌family‌ ‌members‌ ‌give‌ ‌them‌ ‌credit‌ ‌for!‌ ‌Instead,‌ ‌be‌ ‌candid‌ ‌and‌ ‌upfront,‌ ‌sharing‌ ‌your‌ ‌concerns.‌ ‌ ‌

One‌ ‌way‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌say,‌ ‌“I‌ ‌think‌ ‌you‌ ‌could‌ ‌use‌ ‌someone‌ ‌to‌ ‌keep‌ ‌you‌ ‌company‌ ‌and‌ ‌help‌ ‌you‌ ‌out.”‌ ‌Start‌ ‌with‌ ‌just‌ ‌a‌ ‌few‌ ‌hours‌ ‌a‌ ‌week‌ ‌of‌ ‌private‌ ‌home‌ ‌care‌ ‌and‌ ‌see‌ ‌how‌ ‌the‌ ‌relationship‌ ‌develops‌ ‌over‌ ‌time.‌ ‌Once‌ ‌your‌ ‌loved‌ ‌one‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌companion‌ ‌have‌ ‌bonded,‌ ‌it‌ ‌will‌ ‌become‌ ‌increasingly‌ ‌easier‌ ‌to‌ ‌transition‌ ‌to‌ ‌24-hour‌ ‌care.‌

Our Upper East Side & Midtown Offices: Servicing All of Upper West Side

Our two Manhattan offices are convenient for all public transportation, as well as easy to reach on foot. These offices serve as hubs for our private home health aides and nurses, who work at the many upscale assisted living facilities in the area—among them Brookdale, Maplewood, Kendal, and Atria—as well as in private homes throughout Manhattan.

Upper West Side is home to some of New York City’s most iconic attractions, including the American Museum of Natural History, Central Park, Columbus Circle, Lincoln Center, and plenty more . The Upper West Side has some of the greatest cultural institutions the city has to offer. Lincoln Center hosts the New York City Ballet, The New York Philharmonic Orchestra, and several performing arts programs. The American Museum of Natural History located in a pocket of Central Park has over 40 exhibits ad scientific collections, as well as a planetarium and library.

With multiple subway lines, the West Side traditionally has been the busier side of Manhattan.  The Upper West Side has plenty to offer from the best restaurants to grocery stores, gyms, and outdoor attractions.  Manhattan is famed for its hustle and bustle, but on the Upper West Side, you’ll have a good mix of bustling and cultural experiences.

With open doors, LifeWorx offers free consultations with client care coordinators and registered nurses to provide you with short-term companionship options or more in-depth care.  We offer elder care services that will provide a piece of mind for you and your family as well as provide security assistance to your loved one.

Top 5 Things to Do in NYC’s Upper West Side

1) Check out the Parks – It really doesn’t get any better than Central Park which stretches from the affluent entrance at 59th Street Columbus Circle all the way to 110th.  Take a stroll around the gorgeous Reservoir, rent a rowboat for a paddle around The Lake, and wander around the famous Strawberry Fields mosaic.  Riverside Park is a narrow, but beautiful strip that borders the Hudson River. You may also find the plaza at Lincoln Center relaxing – sit by the fountain in the newly redesigned center in this neighborhood.

2) Stop by at Columbus Circle – This area is pretty much the beginning of the Upper West Side and is right on the border of Midtown, Manhattan. Columbus Circle is more frequently associated with The Time Warner Center located here, standing at 80 stories high and 750 feet tall, these twin skyscrapers offer options between dining, shopping, working, and residing.  The Time Warner Center boasts a host of Michelin-starred restaurants, and The Shops at Columbus Circle is home to more than 50 retail boutiques and shops for the enjoyment of visitors and residents alike.

3) Make time for the American Museum of Natural History – The American Museum of Natural History is a symbol of the city and a top place to visit in New York City. Packed with exhibitions representing people and animals throughout the ages, the museum also has a planetarium and a digital 3D and 2D theater, as well as special visiting exhibitions and plenty of places to eat and shop.

4) Dine at some of the best restaurants in the area – From classic Jewish delis and Dominican standbys to some of the best eats – the options on the Upper West Side will satisfy nearly the mood. Around Lincoln Square, it’s always a scene at The Smith, which is a popular brunch and pre-theatre dinner spot. As you head north, the 70’s, and 80’s along Columbus and Amsterdam are lined with endless options.

5) Enjoy a performance at The Lincoln Center – The venue is home to some of the best opera, film, theater, and more. It’s an iconic spot on the Upper West Side and is the heart of New York City’s culture. Lincoln Center is home to 12 performing arts companies and educational institutions dedicated to arts of music, dance, and drama including Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

    You simply cannot do better than Lifeworx!

    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."

    Daina Vitkiene (March 2019)

    "I’ve been working for Lifeworx since 2017. It’s the best agency I’ve worked for in my 17 year experience as a Home Health Aid/Caregiver. Especially I’m grateful for having Ela as my agent. She helped me to find a perfect job position on Upper West Side. I appreciate Ela and Christine as well for their professionalism, kindness and effort to accommodate and do their best in meeting all my and client’s needs. It’s been always easy to reach Ela and Christine via text, phone and email if I have any questions or concerns. I’m very fortunate that I’ve found Lifeworx, which is an outstanding, excellent and highly professional agency in NYC."
