THE CONNECTICUT HOME CARE PROGRAM

DO I QUALIFY?

I want to avoid going into a nursing home and receive care at home in my own community. If this sounds like you, we can help. As one of four state access agencies, we help more than 15,000 people who meet the age, financial and functional requirements of CHCP to remain living at home while receiving necessary services, instead of being placed in a nursing facility.
