Here are some things we do that make a difference:
We provide close interaction with our client’s and their families by keeping families updated with what’s going on with their loved one through phone calls and emails which many times help to bridge the gap when distance is a barrier.

our caregivers are trained to always ensure three things:
We thoroughly check medications and living environment to make sure your loved one is safe.
Well Cared For
There are certain standards and processes that ensure your loved one is getting everything they need. There are different levels of care your loved one can receive and with Care Connection Home Care your loved one will be receiving the highest quality care possible.
Quality of Life
In our training we spend a lot of time talking about quality of life. Depression rates are alarmingly high in the elderly. There are simple things that we encourage our caregivers to do to help brighten your loved ones day. Even buying them something simple such as a book, a movie or a special memento shows your loved one that the caregiver was thinking about them outside of the job. It makes them feel special and further ensures that your loved one looks forward to their visits.
Our Affordable Pricing
We understand that families are on a budget. Our fees are competitive, affordable and often times less than other home care agencies. Office staff can give a client direction regarding Medicaid, Medicare or Long Term Insurance that may cover all or part of the services provided.
