ALS Hosts 21st Anniversary Celebration

In appreciation for our partners who provide services to seniors throughout Connecticut and especially along its shoreline, Assisted Living Services, Inc. (ALS) hosted a 21st anniversary celebration event on Thursday, June 1st. Nearly 100 Eldercare specialists attended the invitation-only Networking and Shoreline Resources tour and wine tasting at Chamard Vineyards in Clinton.

ALS was established in 1996

“Providing the elderly with ways to keep them safe in their homes as they continue to age is very important and rewarding,” ALS co-owner Ron D’Aquila stated. “We are proud of the work we have done to care for thousands of Connecticut’s seniors and individuals with disabilities over the years in unique and innovative ways” cited D’Aquila.  Established in 1996, co-founders Sharon and Ron told a story to attendees of the business starting in a room above the garage in their home, and how it quickly expanded and needed to move twice to larger buildings over the years.  The company has more than 400 employees servicing the entire state.

D’Aquila spoke that the key to success is to surround yourself with the very best talent – from their Management Team, support staff, to caregivers, all of whom are dedicated to provide outstanding service and care.  “We have established ourselves as an agency that has found new and innovative ways to help others” explained D’Aquila.  As an example, he cited a program that is unique in Connecticut called “CarePlus” in which both care and wireless, sensor-based technologies are used to provide care that helps reduce falls, improve medication compliance, or promote rapid access to emergency care if needed.  The technology is provided free by sister company Assisted Living Technologies, Inc. which was established in 2010.  For this effort both companies were the recipient of a prestigious award from the Connecticut Association for Healthcare at Home called the “Innovation in Home Health Award.”

Family-owned and operated

Sharon and Ron also highlighted how the company is family-owned and operated.  Their son Mario D’Aquila, MBA, is Director of Business Development and VP of Assisted Living Technologies, Inc. and another son, Nicholas has recently joined forces as Special Project Manager while finishing up on his MBA.  “We have no doubt that these two very forward thinking men will help to create positive change in the home care delivery system in Connecticut in the next few years” cited Ron.

Over the years Assisted Living Services has established itself as a premier agency and has forged trusted relationships with administrators at facilities, elder law attorneys, social workers, and many others in the health care field.  As such, the event was an opportunity to share gratitude and provide attendees an opportunity to network.

Assisted Living Services, Inc. and Assisted Living Technologies, Inc. are based in Meriden, Connecticut with a branch location in Clinton.  The company has over 400 employees serving clients across the state. Learn more by visiting or by calling 203-634-8668.
