In-Home Care for Your Loved One
Many elderly parents in Farmington, CT these days may be prideful and unable to admit that they can no longer live safely and comfortably all by themselves. They refuse to move into the homes of their anxious children, nor are they willing to go to a nursing home. Instead, they insist on staying in their own house. And that’s why so many families need home care services.
With our friendly and highly trained caregivers from Home Helpers of Farmington Valley, senior family members can still live in their homes without causing the rest of their family any grave concern for their safety and comfort. Worried children are relieved to know that caregivers are there to remind their sometimes forgetful elderly parents to eat right or to take their medications on time. They may need help with various household chores, including taking out the trash, dealing with the laundry and the dishes, and keeping the place neat. In other cases, perhaps the only assistance they need is for travel, when they have to have someone with them to get to the park to enjoy a nice walk, or to more urgent appointments such as to the doctor’s office. For these types of assistance, you can rely on our responsible caregivers to lend a hand when such help is required.

Farmington is a town in Hartford County in the Farmington Valley area of central Connecticut. The population was 25,340 at the 2010 census. It is home to the world headquarters of several large corporations including Carrier Corporation, Otis Elevator Company, and Carvel.
Farmington was originally inhabited by the Tunxis Indian tribe. In 1640, a community of English immigrants was established by residents of Hartford, making Farmington the oldest inland settlement west of the Connecticut River and the twelfth oldest communities in the state. Settlers found the area ideal because of its rich soil, location along the floodplain of the Farmington River, and valley geography.
The town and river were given their present names in 1645, which is considered the incorporation year of the town. The town’s boundaries were later enlarged several times, making it the largest in the Connecticut Colony. The town was named after Farmington, in England.
Farmington has been called the "mother of towns" because its vast area was divided to produce nine other central Connecticut communities. The borough of Unionville, in Farmington’s northwest corner, was once home to many factories harnessing the water power of the Farmington River.
Farmington is steeped in New England history. Main Street, in the historic village section, is lined with colonial estates, some of which date back to the 17th century. During the Revolutionary War, George Washington passed through Farmington on several occasions and referred to the town as "the village of pretty houses." In addition, French troops under General Rochambeau encamped in Farmington en route to Westchester County to offer crucial support to General Washington’s army.
The majority of Farmington residents were abolitionists and were active in aiding escaped slaves. Several homes in the town were "safe houses" on the Underground Railroad. The town became known as "Grand Central Station" among escaped slaves and their "guides".
Farmington played an important role in the famous Amistad trial. In 1841, 38 Mende Africans and Cinqué, the leader of the revolt on the Amistad slave ship, were housed and educated in Farmington after the U.S. government refused to provide for their return to Africa following the trial. The Mende were educated in English and Christianity while funds were raised by residents for their return to Africa.
The Farmington Canal, connecting New Haven with Northampton, Massachusetts, passed through the Farmington River on its eastern bank and was in operation between 1828 and 1848. The canal’s right of way and towpath were eventually used for a railroad, portions of which were active up to the 1990s. Part of the canal and railroad line has now been converted to a multi-use trail.
