With approximately 130,000 residents, Stamford is Connecticut’s second-largest city. As part of the Greater New York Metropolitan Area, the city is a short drive away from world-class museums, attractions and entertainment. Closer to home, the city’s approximately 17,900 senior residents can explore the countless galleries, live theaters and specialty shops in downtown Stamford. The FBI ranks Stamford as the safest city in New England, and across the entire United States, it’s listed at number eleven.

Stamford’s home care agencies are slightly more expensive than the national average, reports Genworth’s 2019 Cost of Care Survey. In this city, seniors pay an average of $4,385 per month for in-home care and $4,767 for home health care; on an hourly basis, these services cost $23 and $25, respectively. Nationwide, seniors pay an average of $22.50 per hour for in-home care and $23 for home health care.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Stamford, 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 Stamford 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.

Stamford 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 Stamford:

HomeFront

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

This nonprofit organization provides free home repairs to low-income seniors in Fairfield County. Its volunteer teams perform many home maintenance tasks, such as plumbing repairs, leaky roof fixes and electrical system upgrades. Home modifications, including wheelchair ramps, may also be provided through the program. To qualify for assistance, seniors should intend to live in their homes for at least five years. Seniors who have received assistance from HomeFront in the past are eligible to reapply.

The Community Action Agency of Western Connecticut

Address: 66 North Street, Danbury, CT 06810
Phone: (203) 744-4700

Since 1965, this nonprofit organization has offered a number of services to low-income seniors. It administers the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program, which helps seniors pay for home heating. The funding pays a portion of a winter bill for a variety of heating sources, such as kerosene, oil and natural gas. Its case management services include referrals to local programs. Through its emergency assistance program, it connects seniors in crisis with clothing pantries and other resources.

Renter’s Rebate For Elderly/Disabled Renters Tax Relief Program

Address: 888 Washington Boulevard, 9th Floor, Stamford, CT 06901
Phone: (203) 977-4050

This state-run program provides renters’ rebates to qualified low-income seniors throughout the state. Each year, senior renters may receive a maximum of $700 ($900 for couples), and this funding may help seniors continue to live in their apartments. The amount a senior receives varies based on the amount of rent and utility they paid in the previous year, as well as their income. Applications are accepted between April 1st and October 1st at the Stamford Department of Social Services.

Catholic Charities of Fairfield County

Address: 30 Myano Lane, Suite 14, Stamford, CT 06902
Phone: (203) 324-6175

For over 37 years, this faith-based nonprofit organization has offered a senior nutrition program. Through Meals on Wheels, seniors receive home-delivered meals every weekday, and meals for weekends may be provided as well. Its Community Cafe program also gives seniors the opportunity to enjoy weekday meals in a group setting. These meals are offered at the Stamford Senior Center, the Jewish Community Center and St. John’s Episcopal Church.

Share the Fare Program

Address: 888 Washington Boulevard, 9th Floor, Stamford, CT 06901
Phone: (203) 977-4050

Operated by the city’s Department of Social Services, this subsidized taxi program is available to Stamford residents who are disabled or older than 62. For just $25, seniors can purchase a taxi voucher book that contains ten $5 taxi vouchers. Each month, they can buy as many as four books. This half-priced transportation can help low-income seniors who no longer drive continue to live independently.

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.
