Ensuring the best quality of life for your loved one.

Hartford HealthCare Center for Healthy Aging cares about the quality of life for you and your loved ones. The Care Manager is a professional that helps you navigate the complex healthcare system to provide optimum care. For those adult children who live far away or are busy with demanding careers, geriatric care managers can ensure your special someone is well taken care of.

You can have peace of mind knowing you or your aging parent or relative can have an advocate at doctors’ appointments, oversee hiring a home care aide or determine other short-term or long-term needs. You can feel reassured knowing there is someone always available who has your best interests in mind.
