We also check on all our clients regularly to ensure they receive the best possible care.

Our Personalized Approach to Home Care in New Canaan

To fully support your loved one and anyone involved in their care, we'll tailor our home care services to your specific situation. In order to do so, our care team will guide your family through the following process:

  • Overview - Call our office at (203) 658-8800 to learn more about our home care services in New Canaan, inquire about our rates, and discuss your loved one's care needs in general terms.
  • Home Assessment - Next, we'll visit your loved one for a more in-depth assessment of their abilities, preferences, current support, and day-to-day concerns. We'll also discuss their care with your family so we can support you as well.
  • Creating a Care Plan - Your loved one's needs and preferences, combined with your family's input and our expertise, will help us develop a personalized care plan and schedule. Once care begins, we can adjust this plan as needed so it works for everyone.
  • Introductions and Ongoing Communication - Finally, we'll determine which member of our care team would be the best fit for your family's care needs. After the caregiver is introduced to the family, our care managers are in frequent communication with the family to ensure they are satisfied with care.

What is Respite Care? 

Burnout is an ever-present concern for family caregivers, especially as the demands of this role continue to grow. If you're devoting all your time and energy to your loved one's needs, you can end up severely neglecting your own. 

We offer respite care as part of our home care in New Canaan because you need and deserve to take care of yourself as well. Our caregivers can help out on an ongoing basis, or cover you for a few days so you can rest.

End of Life Care and Palliative Care

Our non-medical End of Life Care and Palliative Care can provide comfort and peace at a very fraught period for families. Non-medical End of Life Care is specifically available for seniors and other individuals who are nearing the end of life transition due to illness or age. As part of this service, our caregivers can ease each client's discomfort and create a warm, soothing environment where families can share their remaining moments.

Non-Medical palliative care, by contrast, is an option for anyone with a significant medical issue, whatever their life expectancy. Our care professionals can offer physical, emotional, spiritual, and social support to help clients and their families embrace a new perspective.

Ready-Set-Go Home Transitional Care Program

For seniors who have returned home from a hospital stay, the first 30 days pose the highest risk of readmission. We can support your loved one during this period, starting at the hospital and continuing through their recovery at home. We can help your family craft a transitional care plan, check in with your loved one's healthcare team, and provide day-to-day personal care support.

Safe & Steady Fall Prevention Program

Falls pose a serious health risk for seniors, but there are steps you can take to help protect your relative. Our Safe & Steady Fall Prevention Program includes risk assessment, walking assistance, and personalized recommendations to make your loved one's home less perilous.

Companion Care and Social Care

If your loved one lives a more isolated life than they're used to, they may be at risk for loneliness, depression, and poorer health overall. For the times when you can't visit as often as you'd like, our caregivers can be there to lift your loved one's spirits, engage their minds, and provide companionship. We can also help less tech-savvy seniors grow more comfortable with social media and other online tools.
