Family First Home Companions of New York, Inc. BBB Business Review

Welcome to Family First Home Companions

Are you overwhelmed with caring for Mom?  Afraid to leave Dad alone by himself because he has short-term memory loss?  Concerned that your loved one has fallen and is unable to manage her daily activities?


A home companion is a professional caregiver who provides assistance to seniors at home.  Companions help with daily activities such as cooking, running errands, and household chores. 


Family First Home Companions are a team of compassionate caregivers ready to help your loved one maintain independence, quality of life and peace of mind at home.  Our mission is to provide a friendly home care service that is professional and personalized by diligently hiring attentive, qualified staff and meeting each client’s needs through a customized care plan. 


This site is intended to help families not only to learn about our services but to better navigate the world of elder care.  If your loved one has cognitive impairment, visit our dementia care section to learn more about dementia and our specialized services for helping those afflicted with it.  If you are new to hiring in-home care, download Signs Your Loved One Needs Help At Home.  For those that need help right away, fill out our contact form to speak to a knowledgeable care coordinator about starting services. 


I hope you find the information in this site to be helpful and to be the start of getting back your peace of mind.  Being a family caregiver means being torn between your loved one’s needs and your own needs to manage your life.  Having help when being a family caregiver allows you to balance your responsibilities while keeping your loved one’s care a priority.  After all, at the end of the day we know that family comes first.
