Home to just over 41,000 residents, Shelton gives seniors access to over 450 acres in the Shelton Lakes Greenway, which has handicapped-accessible hiking trails, bird-watching and opportunities to enjoy Connecticut’s changing seasons. Downtown, seniors can stroll along the River Walk or visit Viaduct Square and the bustling farmers market. Additionally, historic neighborhoods such as White Hills and Huntington serve as quiet retreats. With adults ages 65 and older comprising more than 20% of the population, it’s clear that Shelton’s scenic outdoor spaces, quaint city center and low crime rates make it an excellent place for seniors to call home. 

According to Genworth’s 2019 Cost of Care Survey, the average monthly cost of homemaker services in Shelton is $3,909. Compared to the $4,290 national average, this is a significant $381 less per month. At $4,576, however, the average rate of hiring a home health aide in the city is approximately $191 more per month than the $4,385 countrywide median.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Shelton, so data for the closest city, New Haven, was used.

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Shelton 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.

Shelton 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 Shelton:

Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders

Shelton seniors ages 60 and older may qualify for low-cost homemaking services including assistance with personal errands, shopping, housekeeping and laundry through the non-profit agency, TEAM. The Homemaking program suggests a contribution of $10 per hour, but seniors may be able to pay on a sliding scale or still receive services if funding is available. 

Circuit Breaker Tax Relief Program

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.
