Home Care with the Highest Standards
For over 35 years in New York City, Concerned Home Managers
for the Elderly (COHME) has been enabling older adults to age at home comfortably.
COHME is unique as one of the few licensed home care agencies that provides a Social Worker at NO ADDITIONAL COST. Our Social Worker connects directly with the client, the family, the aide, and involved organizations to ensure the very best care services.
As a non-profit with a people-focused mission, our goal is to learn everything we can about you or your loved one’s health and lifestyle to create a customized treatment plan. At COHME, our professional staff and home aides collaborate to best meet your needs.
COHME's Customized Treatment Plans Offer:
Home health care may become necessary when you are concerned about...
An elderly relative or friend who needs assistance
The difficulty of caring for yourself, your family or your home because of age, health or social problems
Feeling depressed, fearful or lonely
Being discharged from the hospital and needing some assistance at home
Needing skilled care
Missing work to care for a family member.
When you need long-term care
When personalities complement one another, clients thrive. That’s why we personalize the match between you/your aging relative and his/her aide. This is the key ingredient to our high quality care. Find out more >

COHME provided 24-hour home care for our elderly mother for several weeks after she was discharged from the hospital. The aides were always professional and supportive. The management were highly responsive and helpful. We feel lucky to have found COHME and would highly recommend them.
