The mission of CareCo HomeCare is to provide comprehensive, compassionate, and customized in-home care designed to help individuals remain in their homes, safe and strong.


CareCo HomeCare began in 2004 as CareCo Shoreline. It formed in response to a need for quality and compassionate home care in the southeastern region of Connecticut. Since that time, the company has grown in size and reputation. In 2018, CareCo Shoreline embarked on a company-wide restructuring and rebranding effort. The company emerged from that effort with a new name and a reaffirmed commitment to providing exceptional home care to residents throughout Connecticut.
