Expands Award-Winning Homecare Services to CT Seniors
(Cheshire, Conn.) – Dec. 21, 2023 – Assisted Living Services, Inc., a family-owned, non-medical homecare agency in Chesire and Westport, Conn. announced today that it has acquired Day Kimball Health’s Day Kimball Homemakers, Inc. Terms of the sale were not disclosed. The acquisition is an expansion of award-winning services now available to the approximately 880,000 residents ages 60 and older across the state.
Both organizations are committed to a smooth transition for employees and clients, and all Day Kimball Homemakers employees have been offered positions with Assisted Living Services. As such, Day Kimball Homemakers’ clients will not experience any interruption in services. Day Kimball Healthcare at Home is unaffected by the recent sale and will continue to offer high-quality home health care and hospice services.
“The professionals at Assisted Living Services have nearly thirty years of delivering exceptional experience and share the same values and commitment to excellence as Day Kimball Homemakers,” said R. Kyle Kramer, chief executive officer, Day Kimball Health. “This new partnership is good news for our regional community; it will ensure continued access to high-quality, cost-effective homemaker and companion services.”
Assisted Living Services cares for elderly individuals and couples in a variety of settings–from private homes to retirement communities and senior living communities, offering either competitive hourly or live-in home care services for each family’s flexibility. The company provides free in-home evaluations that outline specific care goals for the elderly client with the ultimate goal of helping them age safely and happily.
Services may include:
- Assistance with bathing, dressing, and grooming
- Medication reminders
- Transferring and Mobility
- Meal Preparation
- Incontinence care
- Light housekeeping
- Safety Monitoring
“It’s our mission to build upon and grow the strong tradition that Day Kimball Homemakers has established among the senior population in the area, while bringing some enhanced services to the community such as Live-in Companion, Adult Family Living / Foster Care, and technology solutions for aging-in-place,” said Mario D’Aquila chief operating officer at Assisted Living Services. “Further, we are excited to provide the community with additional jobs and work opportunities.”
D’Aquila notes that Assisted Living Services is unique within the homecare industry in that all of its homemaker and companion providers are employees, who undergo a thorough, state and national criminal background check, a Department of Homeland Security check and professional and employment references as part of the hiring process. As such, they are eligible for healthcare benefits, 401k plan options, and longevity bonuses. Additionally, employees have the opportunity to be interviewed by an independent 3rd party survey company to share their feedback and testimonials on how the agency can improve their work experience. Lastly, the company continually invests in its caregiving staff by offering ongoing education courses, special certifications, and monetary rewards for going above and beyond in their positions.
“It’s been our life’s work to provide only the highest caliber of care to Connecticut’s aging residents, while giving peace of mind to the families that love them,” adds D’Aquila. We look forward to bringing our exceptional expertise, beneficial programs, and innovative systems to the elderly across Windham County.”
