  • How do I get started?

    Once you review and sign the Blakeford at Home Agreement and Fee documents, you may receive services. As soon as is reasonable, our Care Manager will begin with a comprehensive assessment of your preferences and needs. During this assessment, we want to learn what is important to you and how our care team can best service your needs. Once services begin, our Care Manager will work closely with you through periodic home visits and ongoing communication. If you have a concern or a change in need, the Care Manager is available to research options, offer support, and provide coordination.



  • “Blakeford at Home was nothing less than a godsend. Each of the care givers was extremely helpful and willing to do anything from laundry to cleaning to cooking to organizing. The best part, though, has been the help of a weekly visit with our care manager who oversaw coordinated all elements of my father’s care. She went the second mile in helping us sort through every possible element of caring for an aging parent and helped us anticipate things we wouldn’t have known to look for, enabling us to be better prepared. Her sensitivity to the needs of my father and her ability to communicate with him have given us a shoulder to lean on and a resource that we never knew existed. I would highly recommend using Blakeford at Home if I were planning on having my parent live at home in their elder years.”
