The resource coordinator at Hartford HealthCare Center for Healthy Aging’s new location at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport is assisting employees and their loved ones by telephone and email in connecting with supportive services to achieve the optimum quality of life.

During the pandemic, Marleine St. Juste’s assessments determine the most appropriate services, including home care, medical alert technology, home modifications, state programs, veterans’ services and education. She began her role in March.

St. Juste, a Monroe resident, has spent nearly 15 years in the social services field working with older adults and families as well as people with mental health issues, developmental disabilities and substance abuse problems. She holds a bachelor’s degree in  psychology from Sacred Heart University and a master’s in psychology from the University of Phoenix.

“Whenever I am able to help even one person with the simplest tasks in life, either with a referral to important resources or by pointing them in the right direction, that brings me joy knowing that I was able to make a difference in someone’s life,” St. Juste said.

Due to the Covid-19 emergency, the Center for Healthy Aging is currently providing services to staff and loved ones’ providers only by telephone and email. The new location at St. Vincent’s Medical Center will be open to the public when it is safe.

St. Juste and Hartford HealthCare Center for Healthy Aging at St. Vincent’s Medical Center can be contacted by calling 1.877.424.4641 or by emailing Marleine.St.Juste@hhchealth.org.
