Inspiration & Encouraging Words From An Assisted Living Facility Owner

We were fortunate to find someone in the assisted living industry who was willing to share her positive thoughts and words of encouragement to us when we interviewed her on camera this year. Although she talks about her dream of opening and owning her own assisted living facility, we think it is, or should be encouraging to families looking for assisted living to know that there are people out there with a true passion for caregiving, and caring for seniors. This wonderful lady talks about how she knew that she wanted to care for the elderly since she was 7 years old, and now her dream is a reality!

Assisted Living Tidbits:

A good sign that a city or town makes serving their senior population a priority is when they have good information on their city website about senior programs, events, and services.

Bristol's website has exactly that - a page devoted to communicating with local seniors.

We found some good information on the City of Bristol website. For starters, the city has a Commission on Aging, which, at the time of this writing, meets the 3rd Thursday of every month at the Senior Center (conference room 101). Although it doesn't specifically list what is discussed, I am sure the topics include Bristol's senior programs, services and calendar of events.

We also found a number of other items of interest for Bristol seniors - such as a Congregate Meals Program (860) 582-5928 12:00 p.m. Daily Luncheon for Seniors over 60 for $2.50 fee.), Dial A Ride (860) 589-6968 offering door to door service to the senior center (you'll need to give 24 hours advance notice), Shopping Assistance Transportation, as well as clinics for Senior Wellness.

The Bristol Senior Center seems to be the hub for most of these programs and activities. The center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 5:00 p.m.

Seniors living in Bristol have numerous services and assistance available to them through the North Central Area Agency on Aging - which serves numerous counties and cities in Connecticut, including Bristol. This agency is a regional non-profit organization that exists to advocate for area "older adults" and to plan and manage funding for services and programs for seniors in the areas that it serves.

Some of the wonderful programs available for seniors and their families range from Alzheimer's Respite care - which offers caregiver relief for families or individuals caring for someone with Alzheimer's, to CHOICES - which is an 'umbrella for three core AAA services (Medicare, Related Insurance Counseling, Information & Referral and Benefit Eligibility Screening),' to information about the many senior centers in the area, and the services and programs that they provide. To contact the North Central Area Agency on Aging call 860-724-6443.
