MorseLifes New Memory Care Residence To Meet Service Gap In Caring for Seniors with Memory Impairment

West Palm Beach, Florida (PRWEB) June 12, 2015

Today, there are 5.3 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease and barring any medical breakthroughs to help prevent or cure the disease, that number will grow by 40% over the next ten years. In the State of Florida alone, there are 500,000 seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease and that figure will also grow by 44% by 2025.

In filling the service gap in Palm Beach County for seniors with both moderate and advanced memory impairment that comes with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, MorseLife Health System has now opened its new Memory Care residence: a secure 53- apartment Assisted Living residence and separate 30-bed advanced memory care long-term care unit.

Stephen A. Levin, Chairman of MorseLife Health System, notes that this construction represents the third phase of the nonprofit senior care organization’s $ 150 million capital project that is funded in part by the Campaign to Transform MorseLife. This Campaign, which has raised nearly $ 30 million to date, has thus far resulted in the January 2014 opening of the Sondra and David S. Mack Pavilion for short-term rehabilitation and the November 2014 renovation of the Resnick Pavilion of the nursing home. The fourth phase, to break ground this summer, will be the construction of a 182-apartment independent living residence, The Tower at the Tradition.

Memory Care Residence has been built in the original Edwards Pavilion of the MorseLife nursing residence. The first two floors offer 52 secure studio apartments with expansive dining and living room areas, warm and inviting kitchen, gardens, as well as full service amenities and activities. This residence will have an on-site medical team led by a Harvard-trained geriatrician, nurse practitioners and visiting medical specialists; structured fitness programs; and innovative activities program designed to engage and stimulate residents. One of its more unique programs is Music & Memory, a program of personalized music on the Ipod which has shown to improve behavior and socialization and enhance cognition.

The third secure level of the building includes 30 long-term care beds for seniors with advanced memory impairment. A program staffed by medical and allied health professionals with extensive experience and training in caring for seniors with memory impairment, it will specialize in caring for residents with Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy Bodies Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Wenicke-Korsakoff Syndrome and other memory loss disorders. The long-term unit will offer expansive dining and living areas, private rooms, amenities and innovative programs, including Music & Memory.

Keith Myers, President/CEO, notes that the vision for MorseLife Health System is a world without Alzheimer’s. “However, without medical advancements on the horizon leading to prevention or cure, we are only seeing greater demand in our County and in South Florida for seniors in both earlier and later stages of memory impairment,” he said. “In both residences, our focus will be on improved health and well-being, life enrichment, sense of security and peace, and peaceful living for residents.”

Myers notes that the goal of the professional teams running these residences is to help residents make the most of their lives through excellent medical care, comfortable environments and programs designed to build cognition and ensure more peaceful days. “We want to ensure better quality of life for seniors with memory impairment, and at the same time, ensure peace-of-mind of their family caregivers,” he said.

MorseLife Health System holds the 5-star quality rating from Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as well as the Gold Seal Award from the Governor’s Panel on Excellence in Long-Term Care. MorseLife is also designated by the Florida State Legislature as a “Teaching Nursing Home,” one of two in the state, making it a coveted site for research and training of future physicians, nurses and allied health professionals.

NutritionPlus can significantly contribute to improving clinical outcomes as outlined by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Home Care Assistance’s Balanced Care Method Improves Quality of Life for Montreal Clients


Montréal, QC (PRWEB) February 20, 2015

Home Care Assistance of Montreal, a leading provider of in-home care, continues to offer a higher quality of care with its proprietary Balanced Care Method. Not content with the existing in-home care paradigms, which tend to focus solely on assistance with activities of daily living, Home Care Assistance designed the Method to promote healthy mind, body and spirit. The company has received overwhelming, positive feedback from medical and senior care professionals, praising the holistic and innovative approach to care.

Based on scientific studies of the world’s healthiest seniors, the Balanced Care Method captures five key behaviours correlated with healthy longevity: healthy diet, physical exercise, active social ties, mental stimulation and a sense of purpose and calm. Caregivers are professionally trained to incorporate each area of the Method in daily care to ensure that the same caliber of care is provided to clients across the globe. For example, caregivers have access to healthy meal preparation training through the company’s online Home Care Assistance University. Home Care Assistance also recently published a cookbook, Comfort Foods: A Healthy Twist on Classic Favourites, which provides healthy, tasty alternatives to traditional dishes, such as a “fried chicken” baked with a corn flake crust.

“To truly fulfill our mission to change the way the world ages, it’s important to not only educate our staff and clients on healthy aging and wellness, but to also provide this knowledge to our communities,” said Tim Thomas, owner of Home Care Assistance of Montreal. “We believe that empowering people to be proactive and informed when it comes to their health will lead to them making better health decisions, ultimately improving their quality of life.”

In addition to education around nutrition, Home Care Assistance caregivers are also trained to promote physical activity among their clients, tailored to client mobility and preference. Consistent exercise has been shown to delay memory loss, slow cognitive decline and muscle atrophy and boost mood and mental wellbeing. Home Care Assistance clients tend to not only maintain their physical statuses, but to improve and thrive through the program.

A thorough intake and continued client monitoring enable care managers to develop personalized care programs that incorporate client preferences, personality and history. For example if a client expresses a love of music and values active membership in community groups, a care manager would format a care plan with a dedicated focus on facilitating social ties and active engagement with music (creating, listening, discussing, etc.).

The Balanced Care Method is unlike any other care program in its tailored and research-based approach to longevity. The focus on overall wellbeing results in clients and caregivers reporting higher degrees of satisfaction and fulfillment, and is sure to continue setting the benchmark for excellence in the industry.

Center for Primary Care Celebrates American Heart Month

Evans, GA (PRWEB) February 27, 2015

In honor of American Heart Month in February, Dr. Edwin Scott, from the Center for Primary Care (CPC) South office, is offering tips on how to improve heart health.

Heart disease may be a leading cause of death, but that doesn’t mean people have to accept it as their fate. Although one may lack the power to change some risk factors — such as family history, sex or age — there are some key heart disease prevention steps to take.

Dr. Scott has six helpful tips to improve heart health and prevent heart disease:

1. Don’t smoke or use tobacco

Smoking or using tobacco of any kind is one of the most significant risk factors for developing heart disease. Chemicals in tobacco can damage the heart and blood vessels, leading to narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis). The good news, though, is that when one quits smoking, one’s risk of heart disease drops almost to that of a nonsmoker in about five years. No matter how long or how much someone has smoked, they will start reaping rewards as soon as they quit.

2. Exercise for 30 minutes on most days of the week

Getting some regular, daily exercise can reduce the risk of fatal heart disease. When physical activity is combined with other lifestyle measures, such as maintaining a healthy weight, the payoff is even greater. Try getting at least 30 to 60 minutes of moderately intense physical activity most days of the week. It’s not necessary to exercise strenuously to achieve benefits, but there are bigger benefits to increasing the intensity, duration and frequency of workouts.

3. Eat a heart-healthy diet

Eating a healthy diet can reduce the risk of heart disease. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains can help protect the heart. Beans, other low-fat sources of protein and certain types of fish also can reduce the risk of heart disease. Limiting certain fats is also important. Heart-healthy eating isn’t all about cutting back, though. Healthy fats from plant-based sources, such as avocado, nuts, olives and olive oil, help the heart by lowering the bad type of cholesterol. Most people need to add more fruits and vegetables to their diet — with a goal of five to 10 servings a day. Eating that many fruits and vegetables can not only help prevent heart disease but may also help prevent cancer and improve diabetes. Eating several servings a week of certain fish, such as salmon and mackerel, may decrease the risk of heart attack.

4. Maintain a healthy weight

Being overweight, especially carrying excess weight around one’s middle, ups the risk of heart disease. Excess weight can lead to conditions that increase the chances of heart disease — high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Even a small weight loss can be beneficial. Reducing weight by just 5 to 10 percent can help decrease blood pressure, lower blood cholesterol level and reduce the risk of diabetes.

5. Get enough quality sleep

Sleep deprivation can do more than leave one yawning throughout the day; it can harm one’s health. People who don’t get enough sleep have a higher risk of obesity, high blood pressure, heart attack, diabetes and depression. Most adults need seven to nine hours of sleep each night. Those who wake up without their alarm clock and feel refreshed are getting enough sleep. But, those who are constantly reaching for the snooze button and struggling to get out of bed may need more sleep each night.

6. Get regular health screenings

High blood pressure and high cholesterol can damage the heart and blood vessels. But without testing for them, there’s no way to know whether a patient has these conditions. Regular screening can tell patients what their numbers are and whether they need to take action.


    Blood pressure: Regular blood pressure screenings usually start in childhood. Adults should have their blood pressure checked at least every two years. Optimal blood pressure is less than 120/80 millimeters of mercury.

    Cholesterol levels: Adults should have their cholesterol measured at least once every five years starting at age 20 if they have risk factors for heart disease, such as obesity or high blood pressure. Those who are healthy can start having their cholesterol screened at age 35 for men and 45 for women. Some children may need their blood cholesterol tested if they have a strong family history of heart disease.

    Diabetes screening: Since diabetes is a risk factor for developing heart disease, some may want to consider being screened for diabetes. Patients should talk to their doctor about when they should have a fasting blood sugar test to check for diabetes. Depending on certain risk factors, such as being overweight or having a family history of diabetes, the doctor may recommend early screening for diabetes. For those who have a normal weight and don’t have other risk factors for type 2 diabetes, the American Diabetes Association recommends starting screening at age 45, and then retesting every three years.

Avenidas Encourages Discussing Elderly Care During the Holidays

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2014

The holiday season is here, and that means it’s time for many families to come together, especially those that live far away. Sometimes, holiday visits can be an eye-opener to changes in a loved one’s condition and health needs. Avenidas encourages family members to take the necessary steps to give loved ones the proper care and help that they need.

Seniors often downplay their challenges, so loved ones may not be aware of the challenges they are facing until they see them in person. Many older adults fear the loss of their independence and worry about becoming a burden on their families. It’s important to be open with loved ones about the care they need and decide on a solution that works best for everyone.

The Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center offers affordable daytime care for aging parents, spouses and loved ones. It is both an adult day care and an adult day health center. Loved ones enrolled in the adult day care program enjoy transportation, exercise, activities and socializing. If more help is needed, the adult day health program provides additional support such as speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy.

The facility offers older adults the safe and comfortable environment that they need, with proper supervision and stimulating activities. Avenidas supports participants with Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, stroke and other chronic conditions.

This holiday season, everyone should make sure their loved ones are getting the care they need to live safely and comfortably. For more information about Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center, visit http://www.avenidas.org/services/senior-day-health-center.

About the company:

Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center is a program of the non-profit agency Avenidas.

Sara Soulati, Global Cardio Care CEO, Suggests 10 Tips For Managing Holiday Blues for People with CardiovascularDisease


Los Angeles CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2014

Sara Soulati, Global Cardio Care CEO and founder, today announced a series of health tips for people living with cardiovascular disease and diabetes who struggle through the holiday season. Sara invented the Sara Soulati Health For Life Program to make health a lifestyle and coach people to become champions for healthier longevity. The program encourages people to adopt a daily routine that includes plant-based nutrition and moderate exercise.

Studies show that heart disease, depression and holidays comingle, and people suffer more from depression during November and December when stress and anxiety are higher.

“The biggest culprit for everyone during the holidays is food,” said Sara Soulati, CEO of Global Cardio Care, Inc. and founder of the Sara Soulati Health For Life Program. “Making poor food choices and eating higher quantities of an animal-based diet with refined carbohydrates contribute to heart disease, heart attack and stroke. At Global Cardio Care, our patients have adopted a plant-based diet with EECP®. They feel great, their outlook on life is more positive, and they have more hope for the future.”

Sara Soulati Health For Life Program™ Holiday Tips

Sara Soulati offers the following tips for people with heart disease who struggle with holiday depression, stress or anxiety:

1.    When dining out or attending holiday parties, be mindful of animal-based foods and refined carbohydrates. People with diabetes should limit their food intake to organic whole grain, gluten-free choices and those with heart disease should avoid an animal-based diet and refined carbohydrates to keep cholesterol levels balanced.

2.    Overeating holiday meals higher in animal-based diet has been linked to heart attack or stroke for people suffering from cardiovascular disease. Ensure you eat sooner than 7 p.m., and if you are having a late dinner, then eat smaller quantities.

3.    Make food choices that are organic, gluten free and low in refined carbohydrates. This means eating whole grain carbohydrates and high quantities of vegetables. Plant-based nutrition is the core of the Sara Soulati Health For Life Program that Makes Health A Lifestyle.™

4.    Drink plenty of water in the morning every day to flush and detox the body. Drink reverse-osmosis alkaline water.

5.    Incorporate moderate exercise into your daily routine such a vigorous walk for one hour in the morning. This helps get the blood circulating, helps detox and starts your body’s engine to greet the day.

6.    During your morning exercise, take deep breaths and observe your natural surroundings. Take time to appreciate the sun’s warmth, a bird chirping or the color of the cloudy sky.

7.    Calm yourself inside to be at peace and give thanks for everything good in your life while embracing the negatives as lessons for improvement.

8.    Love yourself first so you can send love outward and receive someone’s smile.

9.    Touch people with kind words and let them feel your loving heart.

10.    Practice meditation with deep breathing technique to visualize the positive and erase the negative.

About Sara Soulati

Sara Soulati is CEO of Global Cardio Care, Inc. and founder of the Sara Soulati Health For Life Program. She launched her company in 2002 and soon after created her lifestyle modification program to help people take control of their health with vegan/plant-based nutrition and moderate exercise.

At the physician practice managed by Sara Soulati, people enroll in the Sara Soulati Health For Life Program as they receive Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) to treat cardiovascular disease and learn lifestyle modification for long-term health.

The Sara Soulati Health For Life Program coaches people to Make Health A Lifestyle.
