Both the physical limitations of aging and the increasing impact of medical conditions play a decisive role in whether a senior can age successfully at home. Our services, which range from having the security of a Personal Alert button to having a full-time, live-in home health aide, allow seniors to retain their independence throughout the aging process. Other services include short-term home health aides, carpentry and home modification, homemakers, assisted transportation and caregiver support.
As a licensed home health aide agency with the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health, we provide high-quality senior care at an affordable price. Since FCA Home Care is part of a larger non-profit human service organization, our knowledge of how to help seniors in Fairfield County is unparalleled.
Family & Children’s Agency offers a wide array of other services that allow seniors in Fairfield County to stay safe and independent in their own homes. Read our online Needs Assessment to learn what services you or your loved one may need.
