At Connecticut Caregivers Connection we consider the process of selecting a caregiver for your loved one should be simple and crystal clear. We believe the course of starting home care should be a comfortable transition for the client and for the family. Connecticut Caregiver Connection would like to explain difference between an agency and a registry. The difference comes down to managing the caregiver.
When a home care agency is selected, we manage the caregiver assigned to providing your loved one’s care. When you select a registry, that task falls largely on you.

We provide our CNAs, HHAs, sitters and Companion Caregivers with continuing education, yearly training and support. At Connecticut Caregiver Connection we understand you want options when it comes to home care services. So here is a brief summary to help understand the differences between agencies and registries. Knowing the differences will help you make a knowledgeable decision that help best meets the needs of your loved one and their family.

Kevin and Tanya have been terrific and the caregivers we’ve worked with through the agency have been truly wonderful. It’s not an easy decision to bring “strangers” into your family’s daily life.
