OVERVIEW

Caring for elders in Connecticut

Since 2014, Caregiver Homes of Connecticut’s community-based program has helped families provide high-quality, 24-hour care for elders at home. We help make it possible for a family member or friend to become the primary in-home caregiver by providing them with the support and financial assistance they need. In Connecticut, our Structured Family Caregiving model is known as Adult Family Living (AFL).

Our main office is located in Wethersfield and we have branches throughout the state in Bridgeport, New Haven and Watertown.
