Home care worker and patient

Our motto “Commitment To Serve” applies to all the services offered through Charter Oak Home Care. From companions, to homemakers and personal care attendants, we strive to deliver to our family of clients the same quality of service we would wish for ourselves. Most of our care givers have served our State’s elders for many years, and were chosen because of their heartfelt desire to make a positive difference in the lives of those we serve.

“My family has a long history of taking care of our older family members. At age twenty, I helped my cancer ridden, deaf grandmother ambulate from her bedroom to the bathroom at night through a buzzer device in my adjoining room. Twenty years later, I left my marketing position to assist my father in the final months of caring for my mother who was battling bone cancer. At the wish of both of these much loved women, they were cared for at home by those who loved them dearly.

In 1985, I started Charter Oak, dedicated to serving the needs of elders, like my mother and grandmother, who choose to reside in their own homes, cared for by our loving family of caregivers. Our motto ‘Commitment To Serve’ remains as true today as it was so many years ago.”
