OVERVIEW

Caring for elders in Rhode Island

Since 2010, Caregiver Homes of Rhode Island’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 Rhode Island, our Structured Family Caregiving model is known as RIte @ Home.
