  • Respite care 
    The Connecticut Statewide Respite Care Program gives relief to caregivers.
  • Memory care 
    Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia. It is not a part of normal aging.

Staying active is one of the keys to aging successfully. Regular activity can prevent loss of muscle and strength and decrease the risk of falls and fractures.
