As a Registered Nurse and Live-In Coordinator for Assisted Living Services, I feel it is important to educate our senior population and their families or caregivers to available home care services in Connecticut. With the support of the company owners, I became a board member of the Shorline Eldercare Alliance (SEA).
SEA was an immediate draw for me as we are a group of Connecticut shoreline eldercare professionals dedicated to seniors. As a group, our mission is to educate seniors regarding current issues and to make available to them and their loved ones resources in our community.
Last night was a perfect example. We offered a very informative talk by Kate McEvoy, Deputy Director of the Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut. She eloquently shared her knowledge of the Federal Health Care Reform: Focus Points for Older Adults and Persons with Disabilities, at the Blackstone Library in Branford. I think everyone walked away with a clearer understanding of this act and how it will affect us.
Our next scheduled event is a Holiday Open House planned at Savvy Tea Gourmet in Madison, CT. Phil Parda, the owner will discuss the health benefits of tea. SEA members will be available to answer any questions you may have regarding their specialties. You can RSVP for this event on our Facebook Page. We hope to see you there!
