Jennifer Labrie, HS-BCP, is connecting older adults and families to appropriate senior services at the newest Hartford HealthCare Center for Healthy Aging location at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital. This includes free comprehensive assessments – in-home, by phone, in the office – to determine the best level and type of care that may incorporate in-home assistance, medical alert technology, home modifications, state programs and veteran’s services.

In that role she assessed the needs of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, coordinated services, educated families and advocated on their behalf. She was also the program director of a memory-care neighborhood in an assisted living community.
