Bellerose is one of the 22 small incorporated villages in the city of Hempstead, Long Island, in Nassau County. This small community of just under 1,200 people allows for small-town living in the shadow of the big city. Over 25% of Bellerose’s residents are seniors aged 65 and over, with many still living in the cozy Tudor-style cottages that date back to the 1940s and still seem to line every street in town. 

Seniors in Bellerose enjoy easy access via MTA to the Queens Botanical Garden and the vast shopping and waterfront districts of Flushing and Astoria. A brief stroll under the century-old trees of Superior Rd. takes seniors to the world-famous Belmont Park, where Secretariat set a world record in 1973, and every June sees a $1.5 million purse paid to the winner of the Belmont Stakes. 

Seniors in Bellerose pay an average of $24 an hour for homemaker support to help them live independently. Home health aides charge an average of $25 an hour for in-home health services. These prices are only somewhat higher than the national average costs of $21 and $22 an hour for the same services, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. This means that Bellerose seniors have to budget around $4,576 a month for homemaker services and $4,767 for home health aides, while the monthly average nationwide runs to $4,004 for homemakers and $4,195 a month for home health workers.

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Bellerose area – complete with types of care provided, services offered and reviews from families who’ve actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help seniors and their families access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

Bellerose Home Care Resources

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Bellerose:

RESTORE provides funds on an emergency basis for Bellerose seniors who own their own homes and who need to repair their properties quickly. This can be after damage is sustained to the property that makes it unsafe, or to bring the building up to code. Eligible seniors must be aged 60 or above, physically reside in the home to be renovated and earn less than 100% of the median income for Bellerose. Seniors in Bellerose can request an application by phone or mail from the Queens office.

New York Weatherization Assistance Program

Bellerose seniors who own their homes can get help weatherizing the property through the Weatherization Assistance Program. To qualify, seniors must earn less than $28,693 a year for single adults living alone, or $37,522 for married couples living together. This program is provided by a network of private non-profit agencies, and interested seniors can call the program’s headquarters for a referral to their neighborhood provider.

Emergency Assistance for Adults (EAA)

Seniors must meet income and other eligibility guidelines. Applications can be made by phone on short notice, or via mail to the program headquarters.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
