ABOUT RISEBORO HOMECARE INC.

RiseBoro began providing Homecare services in 1979 to help support the Ridgewood–Bushwick community and their need for prevention of institutionalization for the elderly, frail and disabled. As a result of our commitment, dedication and quality of services provided to our communities, in 2005, the New York State Department of Health granted RiseBoro the license to provide homecare services in the five boroughs (Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Bronx, and Staten Island). RiseBoro has expanded its reach with agreements from Certified Home Health Aide Agencies (CHHA) to provide critical short-term care post hospital discharges. Our mission is to support our clients to live independently, in a manner that encourages a dignified lifestyle in the safety and comfort of their homes, while providing the best possible care. The RiseBoro Homecare team is comprised of a highly trained and professional bi-lingual staff whose commitment to excellence begins with pre-hire screenings and detail background checks where we look for compassionate, caring and empathic caregivers. Our homecare workers are certified and receive continual extensive training to assure that they provide the best quality of care to our clients. Home visits are made by our Licensed Professional Registered Nurses and Social Workers to assure the appropriate level of care, and for continual quality of service. Our interdisciplinary team develops individualized care plans with our clients and their family members to ensure we meet our clients' needs while empowering them to remain as independent as possible.
