FCP Live-In, Live-In Home Care That Helps Connecticut Seniors Stay In Their Own Homes With affordable Live-In Care
FCP Live-In, Helps Steven Kirsch’s Mom Return Home After An Injury And Rehab. “It was so helpful to have FCP already in place for her return home,” Steven said. “All the people I was in contact with were kind, caring, supportive, and helpful.”
“My main goal when working with families is to coordinate care for their loved ones and to relieve their worry and stress,” says Kellie Krauchik, care coordinator with FCP Live-In, who helps to reduce the anxiety, fears, and frustration families have when their loved ones need in-home care. FCP Live-In helps many by offering live-in caregiving services to older adults who want to remain independent and live in their homes for as long as possible.
Steven Kirsch was pleased with the way Kellie arranged care for his mother, Sylvia, who had been in a nursing home for four months recovering from a fractured hip. When Sylvia was unsure if she could care for herself when she returned home, a social worker recommended using FCP Live-In, an affordable, live-in home caregiver provider with offices throughout New England. After Steven contacted the agency to discuss his mother’s care needs, Kellie began the coordination process.
When it was time for Sylvia to go home, an FCP Live-In caregiver was ready to start work.
“It was so helpful to have FCP already in place for her return home,” Steven said. “All the people I was in contact with were kind, caring, supportive, and helpful.”
FCP Live-In Ensures Quality Care
Although Sylvia needed care for only a few weeks, she was nervous about having a live-in caregiver in her home. It is understandable for people to have concerns over a stranger living with them in their homes. So, to earn the trust of families and maintain its sterling reputation, FCP Live-In has established an in-depth process for selecting just the right people to work as live-in caregivers.
All of FCP Live-In’s caregivers are nurse’s aides, home health aides, and personal care aides and are required to have at least two years of professional experience. Each caregiver goes through full state and national background checks, and all are bonded and insured.

Moreover, applicants for live-in caregiver positions must undergo multiple rounds of interviews. Besides in-person meetings, applicants must also undergo and pass the agency’s skills assessments and attend an all-day orientation to evaluate their capabilities and professionalism.
On top of that, FCP Live-in uses advanced technology to determine the best caregiver-to-client match based on a client’s care needs and personality—to deliver quality in-home care that puts the minds of clients and their families at ease.
“The one challenge that families and their loved ones always mention is that they don’t want to leave their home, their spouse, their memories,” says FCP Live-In Regional Sales Manager Andrea Maroto. “I often think about how wonderful it is for seniors to stay home and get the care they deserve and need while not losing what is most important to them: their family, friends, and the special place they call home.”
FCP Live-In caregivers perform various tasks, such as preparing nutritious meals, cleaning the kitchen and bathroom, vacuuming, sweeping, dusting, making beds, and other light housekeeping chores. Besides that, live-in caregivers also shop for groceries, run errands, help clients manage their medication, and transport them to doctor’s appointments. Clients also enjoy social interaction with a live-in caregiver who can play games with them, listen to music with them, take them out for walks or to social activities.
FCP Live-in caregivers also have the skills to care for clients who have various health conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, amputations, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, depression, or chronic illnesses, like diabetes or heart disease. The company also provides care for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
“In my experience, one of the biggest challenges that families and their loved ones face is seeking to find care and support for dementia patients,” Maroto said. “FCP Live-In offers assistance with a sense of security and comfort in the ease of your home without having to move into a nursing home or assisted living facility.”
Most importantly, FCP Live-In does not leave live-in caregivers and clients on their own. The company has a 24/7 professional support system, which begins with the direct care staff in the home and expands out to a multi-faceted corporate structure, so assistance is there at all times.
FCP Live-In Clients Receive The Personal Attention They Deserve
FCP Live-In has been providing affordable live-in care for the past 24 years. The agency is not an assisted living facility or a nursing home but offers the same—and more—services as senior residences. Clients like FCP Live-In’s one-on-one care that they receive from one live-in caregiver instead of being in a senior care facility and having to wait their turn for a caregiver for assistance.
By having a caregiver living with them, seniors can set their own schedules and get the personal care they need when they need it, particularly when they need help with dressing, bathing, grooming, getting out of bed, toileting, and incontinence care. In senior care facilities where staff work in shifts and are assigned to multiple residents, seniors may have to wait for a shift change to have their personal needs taken care of by a caregiver.
Seniors getting immediate one-on-one attention was what FCP Live-In Founder and CEO David Anthony had in mind when he started the company in 1997.
“FCP Live-In is about caring for people,” Anthony said. “I founded this company because the options are limited when it comes to caring for a loved one. Right now, you either have a home health aide who comes to the home for a few hours, or a loved one needs to go into an assisted living facility. But what if you take the best of both? An insured and bonded live-in caregiver that provides 1-on-1 care stays in the home and is there 24/7. That’s where FCP Live-In comes in.”
While FCP Live-In clients are thrilled with not experiencing significant disruptions in their lives that occur when moving to a nursing home or assisted living facility, their family members are grateful for the agency, too.
Steven has been more than satisfied with the way Kellie coordinated care for his mother and the company’s prompt response to his concerns.
“When an issue came up—no matter what day or time—FCP would respond immediately,” Steven said. “I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of home health care.”
