Concerned Home Managers for the Elderly (COHME) is a home health care agency licensed by the New York State Department of Health. This is important as not all in home health care services are licensed. Therefore, you can expect that COHME adheres to the highest standards, are subject to frequent audits, and run background checks and criminal record checks on our staff. Since 1984, COHME has provided the highest quality of care to the elder and their families in New York City.
What makes us different?
Low Attrition Rate
Besides our stringent hiring process, training practices, and safety protocols associated with our state license, COHME retains 85% of our health care aides from year to year. Most home care agencies undergo high attrition- an average of up to 65% each year. This means that the aides that work with your loved ones build lasting relationships with the entire family for years to come. Our goal to provide a stable, positive work environment lends way to a dedicated staff transpiring to superior care for our clients.
Best in Class Training
Our unprecedented training model is a significant factor in our staff’s interaction with clients, skill sets, and positive attitudes. We strive for continuing education and an interactive platform to allow our nurses and aides to provide feedback on what they want to learn
Customized Client Care Matching
By getting to know our clients, families, and employees, we recognize individual personalities and customize a match between client and caregiver. Personalized matching creates an opportunity for our clients to thrive. Health and happiness work hand in hand. If you and your loved one feel cared for and supported, the continuum of care is set up for success.
Our Founding Mission
COHME has a dual mission – to provide superior, compassionate care to our clients and excellent jobs and support services for our aides.
At COHME, we recognize the challenges that our aides face and give them the tools to solve problems and address complications that arise. We believe so strongly in having our aides feel supported, that we dedicate a staff social-work career specialist just for their needs, including education and career advancement. Caring for the caregivers reflects our commitment to our home care staff as well as our clients. We believe that aides who thrive in their work environment strive to provide exceptional care for you or your loved one. COHME cultivates a supportive structure of care that benefits all parties involved. Entrust your loved one in caring, capable hands.
