Every FCA staff or caregiver I have ever been in contact with has been polite, professional and very caring.

- FCA Home Care Client

Family & Children’s Agency is your trusted Fairfield County nonprofit for senior care. We offer a spectrum of care to allow seniors the ability to remain safe and independent in their own homes. Both the physical limitations of aging and the increasing impact of medical conditions play a decisive role in whether a senior can age successfully at home. Our services, which range from having the security of a Personal Alert button to having a full-time, live-in home health aide, allow seniors to retain their independence throughout the aging process. Other services include short-term home health aides, homemaking services, assisted transportation, caregiver support and social work services.


As a licensed home health aide agency with the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health, we provide high-quality senior care at an affordable price. Family & Children's Agency's Home Care program is part of a larger non-profit human service organization and our knowledge of how to help seniors in Fairfield County, resources and one-on-one care is unparalleled.


We provide professional quality care to our clients by offering:

  • Availability 24-hours a day, seven days a week
  • Client monitoring by a Registered Nurse Supervisor
  • Case management by a Licensed Social Worker
