Understanding Home Care in Connecticut

Please note: Due to the ongoing health crisis, this program has been changed to virtual.  

Do you or a loved one need help with personal care? Would you like to stay out of a nursing home and learn about in-home care options? Whether you need nursing or therapy, help with medications, bathing, housecleaning, meal preparation or companionship, the choices are many. Then try to figure out what is paid for by insurance, what is not, and how Medicaid can help pay for care if you can’t afford it. There’s a lot to know! Come learn from a nurse from the Farmington Valley VNA and an attorney from the elder law firm Czepiga Daly Pope & Perri. You’ll walk away understanding what kind of care you can receive at home and what kind support you can get from state- and federally-funded programs like Medicaid and the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders.
