New York State's Home Care Solution

HCR’s interdisciplinary team collaborates to improve the quality of life at all stages of disease processes. Having a nurse on call 24 hours a day to answer questions, educate, and facilitate symptom control reduces the frequency of hospital visits and helps to ease caregiver and patient concerns.

Our Palliative Care goals include:
  • Empowering the patient and family to take the lead in their care.
  • Educating patients and families to understand their disease process.
  • Ensuring access to information and counseling regarding patient options to encourage informed decision making.
  • Reducing stress and anxiety for the patient and family.
  • Ensuring access to all areas of symptom and pain management needs including physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual aspects of care.
  • Providing education and support to encourage completing Advance Directives.
  • Collaborating to provide a smooth transition of care across care settings.
  • Providing the best quality of life possible for people facing a serious illness.

Customer Corner

"HCR provided home care services to me when I returned home, in Clinton County, after having surgery. I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the services you/your employees provided. The two professionals who worked with me, Pam Hutchins (Nurse) and Thomas Whitcomb (Physical Therapist),were extremely helpful, knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate at a time when I really needed their help. They were a crucial part of my recovery process. Thanks for having such great people on your team."
