One of two Connecticut lobby groups whose members assist in the non-medical home care for thousands of state residents has agreed to provide management services to the other, authorities say.
The newly created New England Life Span in Rocky Hill said Tuesday it signed a management pact with the six-year-old nonprofit Connecticut Homemaker & Companion Association in Newington.
New England Life Span is an affiliate of the 150-member nonprofit Connecticut Assisted Living Association (founded in 1995), the Institute for Senior Living Education, and Senior Services Partnership LLC.
Chris Carter, president of New England Life Span (NELS), which was formed in January, declined to specify financial terms for annual pact. However, Carter said NELS will assist the homemaker-companion group to grow and better serve its roughly 55 members.
Besides lobbying lawmakers, both associations promote best practices among their members.
