A Message From Michael Recco

The History of Friends for Life Homecare dates back to 1970 when my mother, Norma E. Recco, opened her first home care office. For 35 years, she committed her life to home care and for over 20 years, I had the privilege of working side by side with her. She gave me the vision, knowledge, kindness and professionalism to help people live safely at home with comfort, independence and dignity.


There was one unique quality my mom, Norma E. Recco, instilled in me: “the key to quality was through professionalism in a family atmosphere.” When Friends for Life Homecare was founded in 2010, we were dedicated to living by this philosophy. Now almost a decade later, after having 10 successful years of service with my company, I can clearly see that my mom had it right- Success is in family, and that is what makes Friends For Life different from all the rest.


Friends for Life Homecare is family owned and operated, and everyone that deals with Friends for Life becomes a part of our family. When clients choose us, they adopt a professional family – a constant familiar support network that is always here to help. After all, isn’t that what families are all about?


We recognize the trust our clients instill in us every time Friends for Life enters their home, and we understand nothing is more important than their safety and well-being. Our business has evolved over the years, from home care to Medicaid and senior planning, support groups free seminars, volunteering and lastly giving back to our community. Though we continue to grow and expand each year, the one thing that will remain constant is our commitment to providing exceptional service, with compassion, excellence and reliability.


Many companies who are entering home services, are franchises of national companies or satellite offices. We are proud to be a family, locally owned and operated on Long Island, New York, with deep roots in home care. We are honored to be a part of a wonderful community that gives endless love and support that allows us various opportunities to give back.


Thank you for visiting Friends for Life’s Website. My commitment to you is that you will always have someone on your side helping you navigate through the challenges we face as we age. If I, or my Friends for Life team can assist in any way, please do not hesitate to take advantage of the easy access contact points here online, or give us a call. We’d be more than happy to help you and your loved ones.

Michael Recco with his mother, Norma Recco

A Message From Amy Recco

I can’t believe it’s been almost 10 years since we started Friends for Life Homecare. It has been a wonderful journey that has enabled me to continue to do what I love, and that is taking care of people.


Building a successful business geared toward helping others has not only been the proudest accomplishment of my life, but also the most beneficial experience I will probably ever have. Working with my clients and staff has taught me not only about myself, but also the little ways we can make this world a better place. The past few years have been life changing and I can’t wait to see what other doors open for us!


Friends for Life Homecare has earned a reputation for compassion and excellence in person-centered planning one day at a time, one person at a time. At Friends for Life, we understand how important it is to live safely in your own home and community while remaining independent. That is why your goals are our #1 priority.


I have been blessed to have had wonderful parents and in-laws who have been role models of selflessness and compassion throughout my life. It is with this sense of family with my incredibly caring husband, Michael, that Friends for Life Homecare seeks to care for others. We know that caring for a family member involves not just the individual receiving care, but the entire family. For this reason, we look forward to engaging all family members to ensure that the recipient of the care and the loved one’s recipient all have peace of mind through the process.


We will help to guide your family through many options of care and financing the care. I am an eldercare advocate and would be honored and humbled to assist you through your planning and answer any questions you might have.


Friends for Life has evolved into two New York businesses over the years caring and senior planning with two offices, servicing all of Long Island, Nassau, Suffolk, and the five boroughs. We are continuing to expand working with people and making a difference.


There are so many individuals who I need to thank that have helped us in our growth while at the same time being able to stay true to our core values, which is serving with compassion, creating a sense of hope and providing essential and critical support in what ever capacity our clients require.


I would also like to acknowledge our Leadership Management Team for all the hard work and for representing our organization in such a positive manner. They are a dedicated and professional group of people that love what they do and it shows in the satisfaction of our clients and their families.

Our Companions

Our team also consists of hardworking, certified companions and caregivers who strive to make a positive difference in the lives of our clients.
