Bernadette Applegreen began taking care of the elderly right after high school. It was in South Africa where she trained in nursing and started her career. When she moved to the United States in 1988, she became recertified as a Licensed Practical Nurse and continued working. She has 34 years’ worth of experience. She has worked in nursing homes, hospitals, and her patient’s private homes.
Why We Exist
Live-Ins For The Elderly LLC started because of Bernadette Applegreen’s dedication and deep concern for her patients. As she was working, she recognized the need for elderly people to live in their own homes for as long as possible. When they stayed in their homes, they functioned better, felt much happier, and were self-assured because they were staying in a familiar environment. Home care, she also realized, was the less expensive option compared to nursing homes. From these realizations, Live-Ins For The Elderly LLC was formed in January of 2000.
Live-Ins For The Elderly LLC is a family-operated small business in Danbury, Connecticut. Our agency is licensed, bonded, and insured to provide Home Care in Danbury, Connecticut and the nearby locations. Over the past 17 years, we have been caring for seniors who all have different needs and diagnosis. Our patients and their families are dear to us, which is why we offer a wide array of care services and flexible time schedules. Our caregivers, who are also known as Personal Care Assistants, can stay in their houses on a live-in, hourly, or overnight basis. They keep our patients company and provide them with assistance without compromising their dignity and independence. All of our caregivers are screened, insured, and have the necessary experience to work well with our patients.
We are the only agency in the area that specializes in 24-hour in-home care. Our patients do not need to leave the comfort and security of their home to receive the care and attention they need.
