Providing Your Loved One with Home Health Aide Services

At Chrill Care, Inc. we understand the value of providing comprehensive in-home care services for our clients who need them. If you or your loved one requires care and attention at home due to illness, disability, or another medical-related issue, we provide thorough and compassionate home health aide services in Essex County, New Jersey. Since 1948, we’ve been a leading name in home health. Our goal is to optimize quality of life for individuals who have been discharged from the hospital or who are currently seeing a doctor but who need additional assistance at home. From bath service to housekeeping and meal delivery, our licensed and certified caregivers ensure the well-being of your loved one.

Caring for an aging or ill loved one is a demanding job, and given all of your other demands, providing the attention a family member needs can often be difficult. Our agency is here to alleviate the stress your family feels when it comes to making sure your family member receives quality care.

Services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can be provided in the home, hospital, skilled nursing facility, or assisted living residence.

Companion and Home Friend Service

This service is designed for those who do not need hands-on personal care but who will benefit from a companion who can supervise the client’s activities of daily living, encourage independence in self-care, shop for food and household supplies, and more. Our companions will plan, prepare, and serve meals in accordance with client’s plan of care.

If the client needs accompaniment during errands, MD visits, hair appointments, etc., our companions are here to help. We’ll assist with light household tasks and laundry, and we’ll stay alert for changes in the client’s physical and emotional well-being. All of our companions are trained in agency policies and procedures and are supervised by a registered nurse who visits at least once every 60 days.

Respite Care

Our respite program is designed for both the family and the patient. This program is integral to the emotional well-being of the primary caregiver in the family, because it affords the caregiver an opportunity to pursue personal activities on a day-to-day basis, or over an extended period, such as a vacation. The caregiver gets a much-needed break and peace of mind knowing that his or her loved one is in good hands. The respite caregiver is a certified home health aide who follows an individualized care plan and is supervised by a registered nurse.

Mobile Meals

Weekday hot meal delivery is provided to clients who are mostly homebound due to illness, physical limitation, advanced age, or inadequate cooking facilities. These meals are funded by Essex County, however in some cases health insurance will cover the cost of meals! The meals are delivered on average, between 10am and 2pm to the client’s home by trained delivery drivers. Contact us to find out more about our meal plans and funding options.

What kind of food do we provide? All of our meals are part of a low fat/low salt diet. The only change we make to the menu are substituting desserts for our diabetic patients. For example, a diabetic patient would get a fresh fruit instead of cookies. To give you an overview of the kinds of meals we provide, here is our latest Calendar/Menu:
