FCP Live-In Is A Trusted Source For Live-In Home Care Within One’s Own Home
Bill Grodzki’s sister lived on her own and loved to travel. Unfortunately, in late February 2021, she suffered a neurological medical event that landed her in the hospital. After her discharge, she underwent physical and occupational therapy at a rehabilitation center.
Before she was released from rehab, Bill was told that Janice would need around-the-clock care because she was a fall risk and her memory was declining. FCP Live-In was the home care agency recommended to him.
In March, Bill reached out to FCP Live-In and met with the agency’s care coordinator and the caregiver’s immediate supervisor, both of whom assured him that his sister would be in good hands.
“Both were friendly, professional, and compassionate,” Bill said. “After meeting with them, I felt very confident in contracting with the FCP agency.”

“Coordinating reliable live-in care and custom-designing the agency’s services to meet the complex health needs of our clients is where FCP Live-In excels,” said Kellie Krauchick, the care coordinator who met with Bill Grodzki.
“Our mission is to ensure that the services we provide will enhance the health and well-being of our clients and allow them to realize their goal of living independently,” Krauchick said.
Many older adults want to stay in their homes as long as possible even though they may have health challenges. For seniors who want to age in place but need daily assistance to do so, FCP Live-In is the agency to call.
What is FCP Live-In, Live-In Home Care?
Since 1997, the Connecticut-based FCP Live-In has been providing live-in caregivers at an affordable cost to clients throughout the Northeastern United States.
FCP Live-In is not an assisted living facility or a nursing home. While these seniors facilities have caregivers, staff are assigned to multiple residents who must wait their turn for assistance. The wait may be longer during shift changes or when a facility undergoes a high staff turnover rate.
FCP Live-In clients do not have to wait for assistance because they receive one-on-one care from a caregiver who lives with them.
FCP Live-In does not take a cookie-cutter approach when it comes to providing services. We tailor our services to meet the unique needs of our clients. Some clients, for instance, may need help transferring from a bed to a wheelchair or to the bathroom, while others may be able to walk to the bathroom but need help with bathing, dressing, and toileting.
FCP Live-In caregivers also provide light housekeeping services, such as doing laundry, making and changing beds, and cooking nutritious meals. Clients enjoy the fact that our live-in caregivers provide companionship, whether they are going to a medical appointment or simply engaging in meaningful conversation.
All of FCP Live-In caregivers are nurse’s aides, home health aides, and personal care aides with at least two years of professional experience. And, all care supervisors are in frequent contact with caregivers each day.
FCP Live-In does in-depth vetting of all our insured and bonded caregivers. Applicants for caregiver positions go through an intensive screening process, which includes a personality profile to determine if they will be a good fit for a live-in care position.
Compassion is one of the important traits FCP Live-In looks for in our caregiver candidates.
“FCP Live-In is about caring for people,” said David Anthony, Founder, and CEO of FCP Live-In. “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.”
FCP Live-In Provides “Solutions” For Families
FCP Live-In’s growth from helping families in its home state of Connecticut to working with families throughout the Northeast is a testament to the hard work and dedication of its staff.
For a little more than two decades, FCP Live-In’s Regional Sales Manager Andrea Maroto has been helping families across New England find solutions for their loved ones in need of care. Maroto sees seeking care and support for loved ones with dementia as one of the biggest challenges families face. And, even in those situations, FCP Live-In is the go-to agency for trusted Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care.
The agency provides care for clients with a wide range of health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, incontinence, and depression. Additionally, FCP Live-In caregivers also provide compassionate hospice and end-of-life care.
“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,” Maroto said. “The one challenge that families and their loved ones always mention is that they didn’t want to leave their home, their spouse, their memories.”
Maroto continued, “I often thought about how wonderful it would be 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. I am excited to be a part of such a wonderful and needed service to help our seniors maintain their independence in the comfort of their own home.”
By focusing on in-home care, FCP Live-In helps seniors avoid a major disruption in their lives of having to move out of their familiar surroundings.
“Now more than any other time in history, I feel every day, every moment is a blessing and that our seniors deserve the opportunity to stay comfortable, cared for, and supported where they feel their best: in their own home,” Maroto said. “FCP Live-In provides one-on-one care in familiar environments, offering peace of mind for the families and security and comfort for the patient with dementia.”
The payoff of FCP Live-In’s thorough investigation and ongoing training of caregivers is evident from the comments the agency receives from clients and their families. Grodzki, for example, describes Maggie, his sister’s caregiver, as “an extremely caring person.”
“It’s obvious that she takes her job very seriously, and she treats my sister like family,” Grodzki said. “I am very satisfied with the care that my sister is receiving from the FCP Live-In agency.”
