Affirmed Home Care is responding to increased demand for services by both covid-positive and non-covid positive patients with new staff and new offices, as well as enhanced safety measures.

We are able to bring care direct to covid-positive patients’ homes and we are offering hospitals discounted rates at this time.

Affirmed Home Care confirmed today that it has moved into a larger headquarters and expanded staffing to meet the significant demand generated by COVID-19 positive patients requiring in-home care services. Affirmed officials also emphasized the importance of proper health care protective measures adopted by staff in order to assure the protection of both caregivers and patients. "Affirmed was one of the first agencies to provide its care givers full face shields to provide an extra layer of protection to help flatten the curve” said Caryl Petersohn, RN, one of the company co-founders. “We certainly intend to do everything possible in order to maintain the highest precautionary procedures possible in order to assure the safety of our patients, our staff, and everyone’s families,” she added.

Licensed Home Care Services Agencies such as Affirmed provide home care services ranging from activities of daily living (ADLs) to postoperative, palliative and hospice care. Regulated and monitored by the Department of Health (DOH), all of Affirmed's care givers are trained RNs, LPNs and HHAs that have been fully vetted following strict DOH guidelines.

Affirmed Home Care also announced that as part of its rapid expansion to meet the demand for patients across the spectrum, it has moved offices and expanded its staff. “Demand for high-quality home care services has been very strong and we are pleased to announce our new 3000 square foot offices at 70 West 36th Street,” said Barbara Katz, co-founder of Affirmed. Katz also announced a campaign to help regional hospitals struggling with bed availability by raising awareness of Affirmed’s capabilities. In a recent email, she stated, “We wanted to let you know we are able to bring care direct to covid-positive patients’ homes and we are offering hospitals discounted rates at this time.” The company continues to hire trained and licensed caregivers who meet or exceed a rigorous set of professional standards in order to meet this high demand.
