Dear Member,


      In today’s member meeting it was determined that there a number of concerns about upcoming time-tracking changes from DSS.  We have determined that we will schedule a meeting with DSS to review our concerns, but before we do so, we need your help. 
     We are asking all of our members who service the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders (CHCPE) to send us your specific concerns.  We will compile a list from everyone and take the concerns to DSS for discussion.  
Please email us your concerns by July 1 so that we may schedule a meeting ASAP.

     It was also announced that the CTHCA will be changing our name!  Effective 9/1/16 we will be known as the Association of Connecticut Homecare Agencies (ACHA). 
We will have a new website address at that time as well.  Stay tuned!


Thank you.

The Connecticut Homemaker and Companion Association

is a not for profit corporation organized to represent, promote,

assist and serve the common interest of its non-medical

homemaker and companion agencies and their clients.


Our Mission:

To represent, promote, assist and serve

the common interests of the state's

homemaker/companion agencies

and the individuals we serve.


Grassroots effort...CTHCA was formed as the result of a grassroots effort to advocate on behalf of agencies

that provide non-medical support services to individuals in their homes.




Together as a voice...We strive to promote professionalism and quality of services in our industry.




In our history...We have impacted proposed legislation, regulatory issues and reimbursements that affect all providers.




The people we serve...We are dedicated to assisting the agencies that help the aging population stay in their homes.




Return on investment...We provide the independent providers with a larger voice in dealing with federal and state agencies,

regulators, legislative representatives, vendors and the general public. The savings received in the form of vendor discounts,

educational seminars etc., offset the cost of membership
