March 2015 Newsletter


Thank you for reading this issue of our newsletter.  


As I write this, the news is reporting about a tragic event in Brooklyn where seven children died due to the lack of smoke detectors. Check your smoke detectors for proper operation. Replace the batteries. Make sure at minimum there is one smoke detector per floor and one outside of every sleeping area.  Current code calls for the above and one in every bedroom as well.  As always, your safety and security is foremost in everything we do. If you would like some free advice on smoke detector placement, please call us.


This month in The Local Business Spot Lite we feature Horizon Manor in Montclair, a residence facility whose motto is "assistance with living".  They have a quality reputation maintained over several decades.


Don't forget to read our blog, the link is to your right.


Thank you again.

Tips to Make Your Home SaferDescription: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-0d72f989-05f4-4552-805e-2ccbadff920f-v2


When it comes to your home and family, there is no question that their security is at the forefront of your mind. As a result, you have put in a home security system that features all the “bells and whistles.” While this is a great start, there are a number of additional things you can do to ensure your home and family are safe and secure.


In addition to installing one of our state of the art security systems, you should also do the following:


  • Increase safety by installing a carbon monoxide detector, checking for asbestos flooring and lead paint.
  • Find any potential hazards in your home by makingDescription: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-104c7e2f-05b0-4dd0-9f05-b99bea476b77-v2 necessary repairs and using security features on a regular basis, such as reinforcing your windows, installing high quality security lighting and bolstering the door locks.
  • If your home is older, you should be sure to have the wiring checked since this issue causes millions of dollars in property loss each year.

If you have not yet installed a home security system, you should call us right away. We use the latest technology to ensure your home is safe and secure. We can also customize the system to your particular needs, including remote monitoring.

The Domination of Home Automation in 2015


Description: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-8e8510a3-005c-4113-8d26-712033ac01c4-v2Automation was one of the biggest stars in the latest Consumer Electronics Show. There were a number of big names touting their new products, which led to a bit of confusion about what was the best out there. However, there is one clear trend to the future of home security and efficiency, and that is automation.


Believe it or not, this picture of home automation is more focused on the practical rather than the luxurious. Rather than the futuristic idea that all your appliances and devices will work together seamlessly, the practical picture is one where the home security system is the center with a number of practical devices – such as light bulbs, thermostats, locks and video –all being easily controlled all with the touch of a few buttons on your smart device.


In addition to home security, the show also saw a numberDescription: https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-145463a9-ab4e-477d-b44b-008127c32296-v2 of wearable technologies that are developing quickly and are designed to track your activity, such as, smart clothing that will replace a personal trainer and skin sensors that will let you know when you are ill.


The bottom line is the latest trending technology is all moving toward automation – moving away from manual, people-based interactions that are used today.



The Local Business Spot Lite: Horizon Manor (Assistance with Living)


As we age we would like to maintain our independence.  In some cases people are self-reliant until the end of their lives, but in many others health or age related issues and injuries don’t necessarily allow for such independence.  No adult wants to feel dependent on their children or an impersonal healthcare system, we want to maintain some sense of self-reliance and dignity.  Families often feel the same way, they don’t want to patronize their elders, but they also want them to be taken care of.  Wouldn't it be great if there was a place that could provide quality care in a warm environment that feels like home?  Fortunately for New Jersey residents there is such a place, Horizon Manor in Montclair, NJ.  Horizon Manor is a family owned and operated RHCF run by Keith Hach and his mother Carol Cotugno. 


There are two Horizon Manor locations, both are in Montclair.  They are exquisitely modeled with care and quality reflecting a warm “Victorian charm” that makes you feel at home.  As a number of residents call each location home, it’s important to maintain their safety and well-being.  Mr. Hach and Mrs. Cotugno had our experts at Perfect Connections, Inc. install a video surveillance system, fire alarm, and work on their telephone system at both locations.  Our team also installed a surveillance system and a fire alarm at Mr. Hach’s personal residence, a burglar alarm at Mrs. Cotugno’s home, and provided monitoring services at both locations.  When I asked Mr. Hach how the systems have been working for him and his facilities he said, “The facilities feel safe and secure with the service he (Patrick Chrustinsky) provides.”  In regards to Perfect Connections, Inc.’s service he said, “(it’s) excellent, consistent, and reputable.  He (Patrick Chrustinsky) is a ‘hands-on’ owner.”  We have been providing expert security service to Mr. Hach, Mrs. Cotugno, and their facilities for the past 15 years.


Q & A with Keith Hach, Business Manager-Horizon Manor North & South


To find out more about Horizon Manor and what it has to offer I spoke with Mr. Hach about the two facilities.  I wanted to know what makes Horizon Manor stand out from other healthcare facilities.  Mr. Hach said one of the major differences is that their fees are all inclusive, there are no “a la carte” charges.  This means no extra charges for a guest who may need medication 5 times throughout the day, incontinence care, and everything in between its included in the price you are quoted.  Also, the atmosphere at both of the locations is like staying at a “Cape May gracious country-inn.”  Each guest can enjoy the comfort of a beautifully decorated private or semi-private room, there are also suites available.  There is personalized RN-supervised nursing care available to each guest as well.


How did Mr. Hach and Mrs. Cotugno get into healthcare for the elderly?  Mr. Hach and Mrs. Cotugno have been in the healthcare business for the past 38 years.  Mrs. Cotugno had always had an interest in Geriatric Services and Mr. Hach ended up receiving a degree in Gerontology.  As previously mentioned Mrs. Cotugno and Mr. Hach run two separate facilities in Montclair, Horizon Manor North and Horizon Manor South.  Horizon Manor south can hold up to 14 guests and Horizon Manor North can house up to 22.  Mr. Hach and Mrs. Cotugno are also licensed by the State of New Jersey and are a member of the New Jersey Association of Health Care Facilities.  Their services include 3 daily meals, respite care, medication administration, chapel services, daily laundry, Alzheimer’s/Dementia care, and so much more.


Horizon Manor facilities care for their guests by providing a quality environment with hired professionals who treat them with the respect and dignity they deserve.  If you have a loved one or know someone looking for a place where quality care is of the utmost importance, look no further than Horizon Manor in Montclair, New Jersey.  To find out more about their services check out their website at http://www.assistancewithliving.com/index.htm.  You can also contact them with any questions or concerns at (973) 746-9047.
