At Connecticut In-Home Assistance, we recognize the growing demand for supportive care service to both the frail elderly and the chronically disabled. Individuals recovering from an illness or experiencing increasing limitations in their activities of daily living need levels of help ranging from occasional light housekeeping to continuous live-in nurse’s aids.
This help can take the form of meal preparation, running errands, escorting outside the home environment or simply keeping company and seeing to an individual’s immediate needs and comforts.
Our support service will provide a personal care attendant to assist or supervise one’s bathing, dressing, toileting and indicate the appropriate time to take medication.
Our homemaker will prepare a meal, do light housework, laundry, grocery shopping and some errands. Our companion service generally provides supervision and recreation for individuals with cognitive impairments.
All personnel are able to accompany an individual to doctor’s appointments and other errands.
