SeniorBridge, a company that provides care and medical services to seniors at home is closing its Long Island locations. They currently list Riverhead, Medford and Mineola on Long Island. There are other locations around New York state.
Some locations in other states have already closed down and New York locations will close by the end of the first quarter in 2023. Someone who answered the phone for the Mineola location said that the location is not closing but a message on the main website number announces that all locations in New York will be closed down.
The company said in an automated phone message that it is not accepting applications for new clients.
A message on the website says that “all SeniorBridge operations are being discontinued, and our branches are permanently closing” with most branches closed by December 31, 2022 and New York locations teams being in operation until at least January 13, 2023.
A post on Facebook from December 12 also confirms the news.
“All SeniorBridge operations are being discontinued, and most of our branches are permanently closing by December 31, 2022. Thank you for allowing us into your home and providing us with the privilege to serve you throughout the years. We appreciate the many opportunities to serve you and hope we exceeded your expectations. At this time, we are no longer receiving inquiries for homecare. If you are an active SeniorBridge client, you will retain your current care team until your branch closure date. For more information about this update, please visit www.seniorbridge.com. An authorized representative from the SeniorBridge team will also reach out to you to inform you of these closures.”
A report says that the service will lay off over a thousand workers in the New York City, Long Island and Westchester locations.
SeniorBridge is owned by the insurance company Humana Inc, which acquired the home health care company in 2012.
