What a help Chore Service has been to me! Not only was at-home care there when I needed it, but you didn't demand payment or insurance -- the ONLY requirement for me to qualify was that I needed help!
My clients are also my closest friends. I have gotten as much if not more from them as I have given. I would not trade my years in Chore Service for anything. It has truly enriched my life.

Chore Service – founded in 1992 by Ella Clark (the Sharon, CT social service agent at the time) – is a leading resource for at-home care services in the Northwest Corner of CT. Ella founded Chore Service because she was personally concerned for two families who needed affordable help to live safely and independently at home.
Ella discovered that federal funding was available for “chore” programs that help people stay at home, and that clients could contribute financially to pay for the work – a crucial aspect for our proud and independent clients. After receiving a $2,000 grant from Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, Chore Service was awarded an $11,487 Title III B grant in 1993. We served 22 families that first year, providing 1,369 hours of service. Click here to read more.
