Assisted Living Services, Inc. Opens New Westport Location
According to World Population Review, there are currently 146,621 seniors living in Fairfield County, Connecticut, and Assisted Living Services, Inc. (ALS), an award-winning, home care agency, and its sister senior tech device company - Assisted Living Technologies, Inc. (ALT), have the comprehensive resources to service them all. The family-owned businesses recently relocated their Fairfield office to Westport to better serve Connecticut’s elderly population with exceptional, personalized concierge care and advanced technological solutions for the 65+ market.
“When we first opened our Fairfield office in 2018, we learned that a lot of our senior clients were looking for more of a personal assistant to save them time and energy so that they can enjoy their retirement,” said Mario D’Aquila, chief operating officer at ALS. “By moving our operations into Westport, we are able to help a greater number of elderly residents across the lower Fairfield County region not only with companionship duties, but also with the exemplary level of in-home care that has defined our company for the past 25 years.”
The new 700 square-foot office, centrally located at 991 Post Road East in Westport, offers easy access to the downtown area and is close to many premier assisted living facilities and senior retirement communities. It also allows ALS caregivers and ALT system installers to travel quickly to such towns as Darien, New Caanan, Wilton, Stamford and Greenwich to keep up with consumer demand.
ALS is uniquely poised to provide the gold-stand level of care residents of one of the highest income per capita areas of the country will appreciate. Through its innovative and exclusive CarePlus program, it offers cutting edge technology, such as medication management systems, emergency response devices and bed alarms combined with its renowned and trustworthy homecare staff.
ALS Westport staff members include experienced care coordinators, managers and a number of hourly and live-in caregivers, who are all trained to perform a variety of personal care duties, such as bathing, mobility assistance and transferring, meal preparation, transportation and escorting, grocery shopping and housekeeping.
“Whether a person needs 24-hour assistance with constant monitoring or simply needs someone to run errands, we have experience in all levels of care,” explained D’Aquila. “We can provide any type of non-medical home care or concierge service that helps your loved one to remain safe and independent in their particular living environment.”
D’Aquila notes that all ALS employees undergo a national criminal background check and are trained as home health aides or have received training at a nurse aide program. Additionally, ALS is Registered Nurse-owned and operated and employs a Director of Education that is a Registered Nurse and Dementia Care Specialist. ALS performs an eVerify check with the Department of Health and Human Services to assure that all new hires can legally work in the U.S.
All workers are employed, insured, bonded, and supervised.
ALS works collaboratively with area hospitals, rehabilitation facilities and nursing homes, along with various agencies such as the Alzheimer’s Association, VNA’s, hospice agencies and protective services.
ALS and ALT are recognized leaders in their industry, having earned Connecticut Association for Healthcare at Home’s “Healthcare at Home Innovation Award”, as well as the “Best of Homecare Employer” by Home Care Pulse®. It is also a Certified Great Place to Work for offering an exceptional employee experience.
“It’s been our life’s work to provide only the highest caliber of care to Connecticut’s aging residents,” said D’Aquila. “As a family business, we operate with true heart and soul and are excited to extend our family and company values into Westport.”
ALS will host an official grand opening celebration in spring of 2022.
