A Tradition in Caring for Your Senior Loved One
About Us
Quality care and service solutions that exceed your expectations.

Meet Christina Drumm-Boyd, Founder - Care Connect of Hampton Roads, Inc.

The Mission of Care Connect of Hampton Roads (CCHR)is to provide comprehensive guidance and access to quality care and service solutions that will exceed expectations, maximize independence, minimize expenses and stress associated with long-term care.

Christina is a Certified Senior Advisor and Accredited U.S. Veterans Administration AgentI founded Care Connect of Hampton Roads in December 2006 specifically to address the growing and specialized needs of the aging population. My passion for senior advocacy and care management stems from my years of work within the local senior health care industry serving as director of admissions and marketing for assisted living, nursing homes, memory care, and independent living communities as well as my educational training in Human Services Counseling. I also served as a support group facilitator for the Alzheimer’s Association. From an early age, I was exposed to challenges of eldercare, when my grandfather came to live with my family after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. It required the efforts of the entire family to provide the care that my grandfather needed and deserved. It was not always easy and at that time specialized services were scarce and financial resources limited. My grandfather’s care needs would change overnight and I would watch my mother struggle to adjust, all while working a fulltime job and raising a family. My commitment to assisting families who are struggling with long-term care is always approached from a place of empathy and my own personal experience.

At CCHR we have created a better way to address the needs of the aging population. Most often, we are contacted by the adult child who has a concern for their senior loved one and I hear the relief in their voice when I can tell them, with confidence, that everything is going to be all right. We truly can put all the pieces of the puzzle together for them.”

In October of 2007, Christina obtained accreditation as a Certified Senior Advisor. She is also an Accredited U.S. Veterans Administration Agent which gives her specific knowledge to assist veterans and the widowed spouses of veterans to obtain the benefits they deserve. Visit the Veterans area on this website for more information.

As an expert in her field, Christina is available as a speaker and presenter for local businesses and organizations.
