Hartford 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 Hartford:

Rebuilding Together Hartford Inc.

Address: P.O. Box 230295, Hartford, CT 06123
Phone Number: (860) 757-9425

Rebuilding Together Hartford Inc., an affiliate of Rebuilding Together, is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that assists low-income homeowners, including seniors, people with disabilities and families with children, who need help with home renovations and repairs. Once a year, on the last Saturday in April, volunteers across Hartford join together to provide free repairs and home renovations for individuals and families who are unable to complete repairs themselves.

Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 79 Elm St., Hartford, CT 06106
Phone Number: (860) 560-5800

Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) helps low-income individuals and households minimize energy-related costs and fuel usage in their homes through retrofits and home improvements. Although eligibility for the program is set at 60% of the state median income, priority assistance is given to vulnerable households, including seniors, people with disabilities, families with children and high energy users.

Meals on Wheels

Address: 555 Windsor St., Hartford, CT 06120
Phone Number: (860) 560-5848

Meals on Wheels is an initiative of the Community Renewal Team. If eligible, medically homebound seniors can have healthy lunches delivered directly to their homes by volunteers and staff. Hot lunches are delivered between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., and special diets can be accommodated in most cases. To qualify for Meals on Wheels deliveries, applicants must be at least 60 years old, unable to eat at a community meal site and assessed as being medically homebound. While a donation of $2.50 per meal is suggested, no one is denied.

Property Tax Relief for Homeowners

Address: Hartford City Hall, 550 Main St., Room 108, Hartford, CT 06103
Phone Number: (860) 757-9640

According to Connecticut state law, municipalities have to provide property tax relief for specific types of low-income homeowners, including seniors, individuals with disabilities and veterans. There are several tax relief programs available to citizens aged 65 and over, including tax deferral, homestead relief and tax freeze programs.

Connecticut Energy Assistance Program

Address: 370 James St., New Haven, CT 06513
Phone Number: (855) 626-6632

The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Block Grant. This program helps offset wintertime heating costs for lower income households in Connecticut by paying for a home’s primary heating source, such as oil, natural gas, electricity, propane or kerosene. To qualify, a household’s income must be at or below 60% of the state median.

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.
