Keeping up with errands and other day-to-day tasks can become increasingly difficult with age and a decline in health. Anyone looking to find help for their loved ones in those areas and more should contact For The Heart Home Care, which has served clients across Connecticut since 2013.
“We provide companion/homemaker, personal care assistance, live-ins and supervised adult family living,” owner Eva Puzio said.
A companion/homemaker will take care of basic tasks during the day such as meal preparation, walking, reading, housekeeping and errands, while a personal care assistant takes the next step by helping with personal hygiene, dressing, feeding, bathing, transportation and doctor’s visits. From the Heart also provides specialty care to clients suffering from more severe illnesses such as cancer, stroke, dementia, Alzheimer’s, ALS and other brain injuries.
Interested customers can apply online or call their office. After receiving general information on From the Heart’s services, customers will meet with a representative to discuss exactly what they are looking for and From the Heart will try to match the person in need of care with several caregivers to choose from.
Matching patients with caregivers that are not only qualified to satisfy their needs, but get along with each other personally is especially important to From the Heart. They understand the difference made by building meaningful relationships between two people who will spend a great deal of time together. People who get along tend to communicate better, which leads to better care because there is strong mutual understanding of what the patient needs.
The company offers support for Title 19 recipients through the state and helps family members earn tax free stipends to work as caregivers for their loved ones through an adult family living program.
From The Heart Home Care 9 accepts long-term insurance, short-term insurance, Title 19 and private pay. The office’s current location is 300 New Britain Road in Berlin.
The agency’s home care manager can be reached 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you have any questions call the Berlin office at 860-882-4623.
