Home Care Franchise in Connecticut Introduces Innovative Communication Service Fairfield, CT August 2012 - ComForcare Home Care in Fairfield, Connecticut recently introduced a state-of-the-art service using the Internet, digital communication and video phones to connect seniors with their families, caregivers and healthcare providers for enhanced communication, care and safety. The ComForcare Family Care Portal (FCP) is a cost-effective, secure online system that is customized to meet the individual needs of clients, keep clients’ families and healthcare providers informed of clients’ health and well-being, and help seniors connect with their families with easyto-use video communication technology. “Families who live at a distance can have peace of mind that their loved ones are monitored and they can receive continual updates on their condition. They also have the ability to actually see their family members while they speak with them using the Skype® technology,” says Lynn Heur, Director of Operations and Owner of the Fairfield home care franchise. The video component is a unique concept. “We are the first. We’re the only non-medical home care agency that has this,” Heuer said. “There are some out there that have something similar but nobody but us has the video portion for it,” said Elizabeth Mastroianni, ComForcare’s administrative coordinator and Heuer’s daughter. Mastroianni said the agency is about to launch a complementary service that will use sensory units in strategic locations throughout a client’s home to make sure they are eating, have taken medications, and have not fallen ill or have taken a fall. The service is intended to provide clients with an extra amount of security and help families assist their elderly loved ones even while they are away.
