Masonicare at Home provides a number of non-medical home care services. Executive Director Samantha Buonanno joined CT Style Host Natasha Lubczenko in the studio to discuss these services and how seniors and their families could benefit from them.

Samantha says,  “We are a non-medical in-home support services agency and we can care for you wherever you call home. So, whether that’s an assisted living facility, an independent living community for seniors, or a private home, freestanding home, we can care for you there.”

Masonicare is not-for-profit and open to all. Samantha’s staff includes companions, homemakers, and personal care attendants.
