History of Charter Oak Home Care

“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.

With this family background, I started Charter Oak Home Care dedicated to serving the needs of elders who choose to remain in their own homes, cared for by our compassionate family of caregivers. Our motto ‘Commitment To Serve’ remains as true today as it was so many years ago.”
