About Care Connect Direct
Founder, Care Connect Direct
Care Connect Direct helps families nationwide successfully navigate the maze of Elder Care options to ensure the daughter or son caregiver makes the best decisions for Mom or Dad’s finances and care. Best of all, we do it through Virtual Consultations which give you quick access to quality assistance from the comfort of your home — saving you time, money and stress!
Before taking her elder care services nationwide through Virtual Consultations, Christina Drumm-Boyd founded Care Connect of Hampton Roads (CCHR) in Virginia in 2006. More than a decade later, CCHR continues to grow in size and popularity as it provides comprehensive guidance and access to quality elder care services.
Since many of CCHR clients have caregivers who live more than an hour from Mom or Dad, including many who live out-of-state, Christina realized her Virtual Consultation capabilities and skills were borderless and launched Care Connect Direct to families nationwide in 2017.
Christina is a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) and Geriatric Care Manager (GCM) who is passionate about seniors and their families. Along with her staff, Christina works hands on with each client to find the best solutions for the challenges that often come with aging.
For decades, Christina has worked at all levels of the senior health care industry, serving as director of admissions and marketing for assisted living, nursing homes, memory care, and independent living communities.
She also served as a support group facilitator for the Alzheimer’s Association. Her educational training is in Human Services Counseling.
