Homemaking & Companionship

Serving Connecticut and Washington County, Rhode Island

The word "home" can carry different meanings to many people. It may mean residing in the home you or a family member have lived in for decades, or in an apartment, condo, or senior living community.  For an aging parent or family member who may need some extra help to do so, being able to stay at home fulfills a desire for independence that everyone shares.

This extra assistance may be for the short-term; for example, your family member may just need some care at home after a hospital stay or while recovering from an illness. Or, the assistance needed is ongoing in order to continue living safely at home.

Whatever the situation, Masonicare at Home has what you need.

Masonicare’s Homemaker Companions, Personal Care Attendants and Live-In Attendants are carefully screened and trained. We provide ongoing education for our caregivers, including specialized workshops on caring for those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Get started by filling out our short form or calling our team at 203-303-9029.

COVID-19 Precautions: Our caregivers are taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of caregivers & clients. To protect your health, caregivers of Masonicare at Home who have been exposed to COVID-19 or are showing signs and symptoms of respiratory infection are not permitted to report to work. Caregivers are self-monitoring and are being screened at all of our facilities for COVID-19 symptoms, along with frequent testing. We also provide our caregivers with all necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as surgical masks, gloves, face shields, and hand sanitizer. If one of our clients presents with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, our staff will work with you and your family to determine the appropriate next steps.

Home Care covers a wide variety of services, divided into two categories:

Non-medical assistance

This service is provided by homemaker companions, personal care attendants and live-ins. Masonicare provides this assistance on a private pay basis through Masonicare at Home.

Skilled medical care

This service is provided at home by visiting nurses and therapists and is generally covered by Medicare, Medicaid and many private insurances. Masonicare provides this care through Masonicare Home Health.

"Masonicare At Home services have been outstanding. Our Masonicare live-in is thoroughly professional and compassionate and has taken great care of Mom for several years. Living eight hours away, I can sleep well at night knowing my Mom is receiving the best care possible."

The Masonicare Difference

As Connecticut’s oldest and most experienced senior healthcare provider, Masonicare understands the complexities of the aging process. As a trusted resource for seniors, our dedicated team listens with compassion to the unique needs and life experiences of the people they care for.

Serving more communities than any other agency in Connecticut, Masonicare at Home honors the trust that so many individuals and families place in us every day.


Masonicare at Home participates in the Alzheimer's Association Dementia Care Coordination Program and our staff are certified in person-centered dementia care. These programs provide specialized dementia training for all staff as well as in-depth and personalized care consultation and resources for the families they serve. Be sure and ask us about this extra support.

Masonicare employs the most compassionate, carefully-screened and competent caregivers for you or your family member. Our Personal Care Attendants are all Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) or Home Health Aides who provide reliable, one-to-one attention. Masonicare has the highest standards for the recruitment and ongoing education of our caregivers, including specialized education in Alzheimer’s and dementias.

In conjunction with Masonicare's healthcare continuum, Masonicare at Home's Client Care Managers work closely with Dr. Ronald Schwartz, Senior Director of Continuum Health Services, to monitor all of the clients under our care. If our experienced caregivers notice a change in behavior, for instance, they will collaborate with Dr. Schwartz and our management team to ensure they are receiving the proper level of care, all while communicating frequently with the clients' family members.

It's just another way that Masonicare supports our clients and family members through every step of the process. Watch the video series below to learn more.

Masonicare also offers Philips Lifeline®, the gold standard in Personal Emergency Response.

Our 24/7 Lifeline systems include a waterproof push-button pendant or wristband, or an auto-alert option with sensors for fall detection. Masonicare also offers the most advanced mobile help button on the market today - the GoSafe - allowing you to receive an emergency response on the go!

And to take the guesswork out of taking medications, Masonicare offers the Philips Medication Dispensing Service (PMD), the most reliable service available today.
