Assisted Living Services Celebrates 20 Years

Assisted Living Services, 74 S. Broad St., was founded two decades ago by Sharon and Ron D’Aquila. The company now has offices in Glastonbury and Clinton as well. In 2010, it founded Assisted Living Technologies, which combines personal care with technologies to improve the quality of life at home. The companies serve more than 500 clients each day and employ over 350 people.

Ron and Sharon D’Aquila were motivated to start their own company in November 1996 when Sharon’s father, who had Alzheimer’s, wasn’t getting the care or attention he needed from the home care agencies they hired. Ron D’Aquila, a registered nurse, decided he and his wife could start their own company and hire reliable caregivers.

“On any given day Assisted Living Services, Inc. provides homecare services to several hundred clients across Connecticut,” Ron D’Aquila said. “The company today has more than 400 employees.”

Assisted Living Services has faced challenges over the years, including increased competition, but has remained successful by finding new ways to help customers.

Assisted Living Technologies Inc. “uses a variety of wireless, sensor-based technologies to assist people living independent or assisted in their homes,” said Mario D’ Aquila, vice president of Assisted Living Technologies. “Our products include remote monitoring, fall prevention, medication dispensing, and wandering and personal location tracking.”

Both companies were recently honored for innovation by the Connecticut Association for Healthcare at Home. The award is given each year to a home health care business for using new methods to optimize home health or hospice care.

The companies have now partnered with the state Department of Developmental Services and Department of Social Services to increase the quality of life for clients while reducing costs, Ron D’Aquila said.
