I took care of my aunt without any assistance for several years. But the stress alone was weighing me down and I became less effective as a caregiver. I’ve been using Van Dyk for home care, just to give me a break for two days every week, and it’s made a huge difference. My aunt is getting the attention that she deserves, and I’m able to be more attentive when I’m home with her. Our home health aide has been a life saver.

Sometimes it’s the little things that go a long way. My dad does not need a care provider all the time. But ever since my mom passed away, my dad has struggled to do everything on his own at home. I hired Van Dyk to help him with cooking on certain nights, basic housecleaning stuff, and even to provide a little company in a subtle way. My dad sort of dictates the hours when he needs help. But he feels much more in control of more important decisions when someone is there, in my mom’s absence, to do the little things that he sometimes overlooks. Van Dyk has kept a steady presence without my dad feeling like he needs constant care.

Terri G.

Glen Rock, NJ

I actually spent many hours interviewing different home care agencies, and here’s the difference with Van Dyk. Everyone who works there is genuine and sincere. Nobody is putting on a show. My mom can spot a fake person a mile away. The home health aides from Van Dyk are down-to-Earth people who mean what they say. I have tremendous respect for how hard these women work and how much pride they take in looking after my parents when my brother and I are not around.
