Chester Joins Deep River in Area Health District

Faced with a Health Department that could no longer meet state standards and impending staff retirements, Chester voters approved a move to join Deep River, Clinton, Old Saybrook, and Haddam in the Connecticut River Area Health District (CRAHD).

The measure, which came with the recommendation of the current health director, sanitarian, Board of Selectmen, and Board of Finance, passed along with the town budget at town meeting May 30. Through the move, the town will now have access to expanded health and human services—and avoids running afoul of the state.

“The Connecticut Department of Public Health has recently determined, by virtue of inspection, that the Chester Health Department is not in compliance with the statutory requirements,” said Chester First Selectman Lauren Gister. “Now, we have not been in compliance for some time, this is not new.”

State statutes require municipalities to provide an equivalent of one full-time, 35 hour employee and also provide 10 essential services to residents.

My daughter has been diagnosed with asthma?

She will be 3 years old in March.

She goes to asthma clinic once a month and is on 2 different inhalers.

I wondered if anyone has any suggestions on what would be best for her?

Anti allergy pillows?

Do what you can to reduce dust levels but do not go overboard because she will naturally build-up resistance to many things as she grows-up. Laminate flooring will help if it is vacuumed/dusted regularly, with bedding anti-allergy stuff is ok but ordinary

Just make sure she has inhalers on time and stays away from dusty stuff and yes a laminate floor would be much better then a carpet coz i have asthma too
bless your daughter xx

My boyfriend is asthmatic and he finds anti allergy pillows helpful. A really powerful vacuum cleaner is a good thing for him as well
