In-Home Care Plan

24 Hour Live-in Caregivers in Glastonbury, Connecticut

Creating a plan of care is the first step to quality care and building a strong partnership between Heaven’s Hands Home Care and any new client.

We begin our relationship by getting to know our client, their family, and extended support community, if there is one. In our first meeting, our aim is to understand the primary diagnosis, concerns, other healthcare and wellness needs or companion needs, and explore social history and primary interests.

The plan of senior home care is developed collaboratively with the client and family and is designed to:

  • Establish care needs/care goals

  • Act as a guide and basis for the client-caregiver partnership

  • Become an orientation tool for the caregiver (s) to outline expectations and approach to care, prior to beginning services

In-Home Care Plan

Cynthia was truly a blessing to our family and we have grown to love and cherish her very much. Cynthia’s calm and loving spirit got me through facing the end of Dads life. Dad is in a better place now and although he couldn’t speak towards the end I know he would want her to know how much he appreciated all she did for him.

She has a charming demeanor and her commitment to her job is impeccable. She is a skilled caregiver that gave Dad the best care. She never left Dad’s side until I or another family member was there and called to check on him when she wasn’t there. I can not say enough about her! A true asset to the company.
