Day Kimball Healthcare at Home: HomeMakers
Day Kimball HomeMakers, a division of Day Kimball Healthcare at Home, offers a variety of professional, flexible, non-medical in-home services to meet your needs or the needs of a loved one. Our personalized services are the perfect complement to in-home medical care provided by from visiting nurses, therapists, geriatric care managers and physicians. And, our services are the perfect alternative to assisted living or nursing home care.
A trusted and respected community organization since 1985, we’ve helped hundreds of clients continue to lead active, meaningful lives — while remaining in their own homes. We are registered with the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (HCA #0000174), and we receive grants through Senior Resources Agency on Aging. We encourage you to inquire about our services before a crisis occurs so that if help is suddenly needed in the home, there will be comfort in knowing that your homemaking agency has already been selected.
We are Alzheimer's and Dementia Specialists
We take great pride in our expertise in assisting individuals who are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. We continuously learn more about the disease and how to provide the best and most helpful services for both patient and caregiver with specialized, consistent training from the Connecticut Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. If you’re a caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia, we provide you time for yourself, an opportunity to get a good night’s sleep, and a compassionate and experienced support network.
Alzheimer’s & Dementia Memory Care Activity Program
This program is designed to help provide stimulation and socialization to individuals with Alzheimer's or other types of dementia, as well as respite time for their caregivers. Participants will have a chance for socialization in planned group activities that are both intellectually and physically stimulating. Learn more at our Memory Care Activity Program page >

They are considered part of a client’s health care team, and they communicate with the client’s physicians, nurses, therapists, and more — helping us deliver the utmost in fully integrated care.
