As a follow up to our recent article on innovations in dementia care, we thought it was the perfect time to introduce you to the Glenner Memory Care Centers. They are a 33-year-old organization serving family caregivers and loved ones with Alzheimer’s and other Memory Disorders. The Glenner Adult Day Programs and caregiver support groups offer another forward thinking solution to those needing care solutions. We sat down with Glenner’s CEO Anette Asher to bring you details on their care model, which is breaking new ground for those effected by dementia or Alzheimer’s.
I recently attended a clinical geriatric symposium at UCSD, so this month I wanted to write about some of the things that were discussed there on dementia. I would also like to share about an article in this month’s Atlantic about a long term care community in the Netherlands where residents with dementia are experiencing something unusual. The experience also happens to be quite compelling to many memory care specialists from around the world who visit their community regularly.
Everyone is looking for answers to handling this incurable disease.
This month Grace Care has chosen to highlight Ms. Laura Anderson as our San Diego caregiver of the month. Interviewing Laura was yet another reminder of how special our caregivers are. Their stories are inspiring, dynamic, unique and show a true calling to this line of special work. Thank you Laura for taking the time to share with us your background. We are proud to dedicate this article to you and thank you for sharing your caring spirit with our clients!
