For Health Care Professionals

For Health Care Professionals

Our team of case coordinators, registered nurses, social workers, and home health aides work together to make your job easier and your clients happier.

At UJC, we partner with discharge planners, MLTC agencies, CHHAs, geriatric case managers, medical professionals, and social service agencies to serve and keep clients. We help you find the right aide for your Medicare, Medicaid, and private pay clients.

10 Ways UJC Makes Your Job Easier


Number 1 Circle

A Large Pool of Qualified Aides

We have more than 800 fully certified Home Health Aides for short- or long-term care in all five boroughs and Nassau County for private pay, Medicaid or Medicare clients. All have had FBI background checks.

Number 2 Circle

Reduced Direct Management Burden for You

We provide case coordinators and registered nurses who work directly with clients to resolve issues and connect clients to additional services, if needed.

Number 3 Circle

Matches That Last

At UJC, we consider cultural and religious needs of clients as well as personal preferences and personality when assigning an aide. Our case coordinators know that compatibility matters in making a match. Whether it is knowing how to keep a kosher kitchen or speaking Mandarin, we find aides who make clients feel at home in their homes.


“I don’t normally work on Sundays but I did because a client needed me. Whatever time they call me—if they need me, I come.”

— Pamela, UJC Home Health Aide

Number 4 Circle

Easy Referral Process

A phone call — (212) 460-5730 — is all it takes. Our case coordinators will do the rest.

Number 5 Circle

Immediate Response

With our large pool of aides, we can have an aide in the client’s home within 24 hours. We’ll follow up with a visit by a registered nurse and a more detailed intake interview to make sure the match is right.

Number 6 Circle

Access to Social Work Services

Answers to questions about housing and accessing benefits are a phone call away. Families or clients may need counseling or help dealing with other problems. We will connect them with the help they need.

“If someone is identified as suffering from depression or confusion, that patient or family can reach out to a social worker and explore additional services.”

— Scott Garnier, Former Chief Operating Officer, UJC

Number 7 Circle

Aides With Extra Training

Our aides are trained to recognize and deal with senior depression and dementia, and have the other skills needed to ensure that clients are cared for correctly, safely, and with the patience and respect they deserve.

Number 8 Circle

Dedicated Aides

Many of UJC’s Home Health Aides have been with us for decades. We pay a living wage and have created a culture of reliability and honesty.

Number 9 Circle

No-Fee Help With Medicaid and Medicaid Pooled Income Trusts

Helping clients find the resources to get the help they need can be a challenge. The fees for assistance in accessing benefits can be exorbitant but not at UJC. We charge no fees above those mandated.

Number 10 Circle

More Than 30 Years Experience

At UJC, we know how to navigate the benefit system and make it work for our clients. We step up when others walk away.
