Frequently Asked Home Care Questions
What’s the best home care?
The best home care is provided by reliable caregivers who are trained and backed by a home care agency that’s insured, providing oversight, care guidance, and back-up caregivers as needed.
How do I find the best Bristol caregiver for my loved one?
The best caregiver who has the training to support your loved one’s care needs.

It’s also important to find a caregiver who’s extremely reliable, —has back-up if necessary, —and is a good fit in terms of personality and shared interests.
Is home care better than moving to assisted living?
Nine out of ten older adults would prefer to live independently in the home they know and love rather than moving to a facility or assisted living community.

With the right level of support, most people can continue to live safely and comfortably at home even as they age.
How much does home care cost?
Home care is typically billed by the hour, so the cost depends on the number of care hours per week and can vary slightly by region. Most families pay out-of-pocket for their care or use long-term care insurance.
Is a home care agency better than hiring a private caregiver?
If you value safety, security, and reliability, yes. A quality home care agency is insured and also manages the performance and scheduling of its caregivers, handles billing and payroll, and has back-up caregivers to fill in when needed.

With a private hire caregiver, you’re responsible for setting up payroll and withholding taxes, caregiver vetting and background checks, and purchasing sufficient liability insurance to cover any accidents or injuries in the home.

    - Heather T., Manchester, CT
  • I have utilized TheKey in the past and it was the first place I called when I needed help for dad. They were able to find a great caregiver - one that my dad feels comfortable with and has things in common. TheKey is reliable and dependable. They work with you to develop the right care plan and also help liaise with our LTC company which frees up my time and takes away some stress. Our caregiver is extremely nice and truly cares about my dad. He and my dad have a lot in common and he’s easy to trust. The office team has been great- finding the perfect caregiver and not giving up until they did (my dad lives in a location that is hard to service). They have all been responsive and dependable and very helpful.
    - Barbara S., Harwinton, CT
  • Responsive to our needs and consistent caregivers.
    - Madeleine H., West Hartford, CT
  • Very professional, organized, and the caregivers are awesome.
    - Dave W., South Windsor, CT
  • Super reliable, quality care. Excellent communication. We have never had a lapse in care when our mother’s aide has been sick or on vacation.
    - Kearny K., Farmington, CT
  • I am very grateful for the communication with myself and the company. I am glad that they also watch over their employee when they ask for assistance and watch over the client and family.
