Care from the Heart offers services for Island elderly


Care from the Heart (CFTH), a Cape Cod-based company now operating on the Vineyard, hires Island caregivers to work with elderly Islanders in need of companion services and/or personal care, according to a press release.

CFTH, in business since 2004, serves clients in the mid to upper Cape and Tri-Town areas — Marion, Mattapoisett, and Rochester. The company employs home health aides, personal care attendants, and certified nursing assistants, as well as mature adults who enjoy caring for and helping seniors, according to manager Rachael M. Hicks.

“We will do whatever we can to assist in making their lives at home safe and independent,” Ms. Hicks wrote in an email to The Times. “It’s very clear that people would rather be in their own homes, but living alone can be lonely if a person can’t get out. We will bring clients to the outside world or bring the outside world to our clients.”
