Care Connection In-Home Care

Your home. Your care. Your provider.

Care Connection provides people aged 60 and above with an affordable, trusted and reliable place when needing a variety of assistance: companionship, personal care support, dementia-specific needs, personal assistance, end of life care/hospice and more. When you hire an Independent Provider through the Care Connection registry, you receive a qualified, skilled caregiver or housekeeper who works directly for and with you, not for a franchise or corporation.

Independent Providers are screened and interviewed to ensure you are receiving the safe support you or your loved one needs.

Care Connection is a private, non-profit, private-pay program of Senior Services for South Sound. Profits go directly back to helping seniors with our programs and services!

Referrals are provided to individuals and their families who may have needs other than in-home care, such as Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, planning for long-term care, support for family caregivers and questions about other community resources.
