Cos Cob Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Cos Cob:

Rebuilding Together New Britain 

Address: 200 Myrtle St., New Britain, CT 06053
Phone: (860) 832-4389

A local affiliate of Rebuilding Together, this charity helps homeowners repair their homes. On Spring Rebuilding Day, which is held on the last Saturday in April, it restores 15 local homes. Throughout the year, its volunteers help homeowners with year-round maintenance projects. These projects may include electrical repairs, plumbing repairs or accessibility modifications. 

HomeFront 

Address: 88 Hamilton Ave., Stamford, CT 06902
Phone: (800) 887-4673

HomeFront’s team of volunteers provides free home repairs to low-income homeowners, including seniors. These repairs are conducted on the first Saturday in May, but applications are accepted year-round. HomeFront may install ramps, repair roofs or replace windows and doors, among other projects. They may also perform cleaning and yard work, depending on seniors’ needs.

Meals-on-Wheels of Greenwich 

Address: 89 Maple Ave., Greenwich, CT 06830
Phone: (203) 869-1312

Meals-on-Wheels of Greenwich is a non-profit organization that delivers hot and cold meals to seniors. Volunteers deliver two meals each weekday. Weekend meals are available, and if requested, they’re delivered on Fridays. Various dietary requirements, including allergies and low-sodium, can be accommodated. Meals are subsidized through donations, so seniors are charged only $7 per day.

Catholic Charities of Fairfield County 

Address: 238 Jewett Ave., Bridgeport, CT 06606
Phone: (203) 416-1319

Each day, Catholic Charities of Fairfield County provides meals to more than 400 seniors. The charity delivers well-balanced meals each weekday, and if necessary, weekend meals can be provided. To help seniors stay healthy, a variety of therapeutic diets are available. A donation is suggested, but not required, to help cover the meal costs. It also offers a Community Cafe program that provides meals to seniors in a group setting. 

Renters Rebate Program 

Address: 101 Field Point Rd., Greenwich, CT 06830
Phone: (203) 622-7700

Seniors who rent their homes may be eligible for assistance from the Renters Rebate program. This state-funded program provides funding based on a senior’s rent and utility payments, as well as their income. Each year, single seniors can receive up to $700, while couples may receive as much as $900. This rebate can make rent more affordable for seniors.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
