Founder and CEO
Daidre Chamberlain is the founder and CEO of Amity Homecare in Orange, Connecticut. She began her healthcare journey back in 2003 as a Certified Nursing Assistant and then as a licensed Practical Nurse in 2004. In 2005, she graduated from the College of New Rochelle as a Registered Nurse. Through her diverse journey of helping those recovering from illness and injury, those suffering from diseases, as well as patients seeing the end of their days; she has noted one major need. The need for personal caregivers.
There are times when family and friends cannot be with their loved ones around the clock and there are patients that do not have someone that can be there with them at all. Whether their loved ones are at home or at a healthcare facility, having a caregiver is a big step toward patients gaining some independence as well as assisting patients to recover at a faster rate. With this in mind, Daidre opened up her doors as a home healthcare agency in March of 2018 to supply the need for personal caregivers. She wanted her agency to stand out by training her caregivers on a monthly bases on procedures, and laws in healthcare.
When she is not in the office or providing patient care, she is spending time with her loving husband and their 3 daughters, their 2 cats, and 2 dogs. She loves being outdoors and gardening. She also enjoys reading articles and publications and attending seminars to learn more about new and upcoming changes in healthcare.
