The town of Greenwich, Connecticut is a popular destination for retirees looking for a relaxing suburban environment. Access to world class medical facilities and low crime rates are some of the key reasons that there are more than 10,000 seniors currently living in Greenwich. In fact, the community is considered to be one of the safest metropolitan areas in the United States. With its rich history, seniors have a variety of social activities and recreational opportunities available, and it’s less than an hour away from New York City – perfect for shopping trips or catching a Broadway performance.

Living costs in Connecticut tend to be higher than the U.S. national average. According to Gentworth’s 2018 Cost of Care Survey, seniors in the Greenwich area can expect to pay about $21.75 per hour for in-home care and $24.50 per hour for home health care services. These rates are slightly higher than the average national costs for the same services, which cost about $21 and $22 per hour in the same categories.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Greenwich, so data for the closest city, Bridgeport was used.

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Greenwich area – complete with types of care provided, services offered and reviews from families who’ve actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help seniors and their families access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

Greenwich 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 Greenwich:

Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders (CHCPE)

Phone: (800) 445-5394

The Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders (CHCPE) is a program administered by the Connecticut Department of Social Services that helps seniors remain at home instead of being placed in a nursing home. Residents of Connecticut who are over the age of 65 and living on a limited income can apply to receive financial assistance with the cost of services associated with aging in place, such as care management, companionship, meal delivery and homemaker services.

At Home In Greenwich

It hosts a monthly calendar of social and recreational programs and events for members to participate in, as well as educational programs and health seminars. Volunteers are available to provide transportation services and assistance with everyday household tasks, such as tech help, prescription pickups and minor repairs. For larger tasks and services, the organization offers a list of reliable vendors that have been pre-screened and approved. These vendors often offer discounted rates for members, and after the service is completed, At Home will do a check to ensure the service meets the members’ expectations.

Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP)

Address: 44 Hamlin Street, Middletown, CT 06457
Phone: (800) 842-1132

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.

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.
