Local Family Bring Home Helpers and Direct Link to Hudson Valley  

Finding the right person to care for your loved one can be a stressful experience, but it doesn’t have to be. At Home Helpers and Direct Link of Hudson Valley, we are committed to matching each of our client with the right, highly-trained, compassionate caregiver. I’m Shagufta Nasir and I’m the local owner and operator of Home Helpers and Direct Link of Hudson Valley. My Husband, Shakir Qayyum, my daughters, Sadra and Yusra Qayyum, and I run the day-to-day operations of the company.

At Home Helpers, we specialize in providing comprehensive home care for seniors, new mothers and individuals needing recuperative and continuing assistance. Home Helpers also offers Direct Link, its proprietary line of 24/7 medical alert systems, including a fall sensor with GPS locator and an automated medication dispenser. Our goal is to help families care for their loved ones so they can focus on spending quality time together – not just being full-time caregivers.

My family and I understand what it means to care for a loved one. In fact, in 2007, I moved my family from Germany to New York to care for my dad and my brother, who has Down’s Syndrome, after my mother passed away. We found out about Home Helpers when my dad had a stroke. We are a close family and we’ve always cared for each other, but, when that happened, we didn’t know what to do and we needed help. Working with Home Helpers to give my father the care he needed was a life-changing experience. We were all so relieved to have someone to turn to. That’s what got the wheels turning on opening our own franchise.

Home Helpers and Direct Link of Hudson Valley offers free in-home consultations and we’ll work with you to create a flexible, affordable care plan based on your individual needs. Services offered include respite care, meal preparation, laundry, light housekeeping, companionship, transportation and more. We serve people in East Greenbush, Hudson, Kingston and the surrounding areas.

We truly believe in the power of Home Helpers and the services we provide. Home Helpers made a huge difference for our family and now we’re looking forward to helping other families care for their loved ones. We know what it takes to provide top-notch care and we have high expectations of our caregivers. We expect each and every one of our clients to receive the same level of care we wanted for my dad. Contact us today and let’s talk about how we can help you and your family.
