Originally published in January 2012 as the first of its kind in senior living and expanded to home care in 2017, the Caring Stars annual list has become a go-to guide of the best home care agencies nationwide – particularly helpful after families gather for the holidays and discover increased or urgent senior care needs for their elderly parents or grandparents. To be considered for the award, Caring Stars agencies met a set of rigorous criteria based on ratings and reviews from seniors and their family members. senior care experts also conducted a reviews-integrity audit and took other quality-assurance measures before determining the Caring Stars of 2020.

“Congratulations to Home Helpers North Central CT and Western Mass for being among these highly-rated agencies achieving such significant praise from their customers in online reviews,”’s CEO Jim Rosenthal said. “They stand out as among the best in the nation for 2020.”
