November Walk to Wellness: Living Independently at Home

October 28, 2019

Knowing when your family member may need assistance at home can be daunting, says Hartford HealthCare at Home’s Karen Pagliaro.

“When visiting, look around,” she says. “Is the home not cared for the way it had been in the past?  Are there dishes in the sink, laundry piling up, newspaper scattered throughout the home?  Do you notice that their hygiene is lacking or they are wearing the same clothes?

“If the answer is yes to these questions than it may be time to have help for them in their home.  Assistance does two things: It allows for the tasks to be completed, but it also provides for more socialization for your loved one, and without leaving their home!”

Pagliaro will talk about types of assistance available in the home and when to get it at the Walk to Wellness Nov. 12 at 8:30 am at the Westfarms Rest and Relaxation Lounge (Lower Level of Westfarms mall near Nordstrom).

Here’s the schedule:

8:30-9 am: Presentation
9-9:30 am: Breakfast at California Pizza Kitchen
