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.

(PRWEB) January 27, 2015

Qualfon, a people-driven business process outsourcing (BPO) company and global provider of contact center services, announced today that roughly 11,086 of its employees volunteered 26,366 hours of service to more than 45 charitable organizations and non-profit agencies across four countries during the 2014 calendar year.

The 26,366 hours of donated time and volunteer service stem from Qualfon’s Give@Work program, which focuses on building relationships with schools, charitable organizations, and non-profit agencies in the communities where Qualfon operates contact centers. Through these relationships, Qualfon sponsors events and activities that serve the needs of the local people. Some of the 2014 Give@Work activities included building homes and classrooms, rehabilitation projects after natural disasters, environmental sustainability projects, and spending time with children and the elderly.

“We collaborated with partner institutions to help transform communities, working with people of all ages, caring for the poor and sick, and running projects related to education, environment, health and construction. We also invested in our volunteers, helping them develop new skills, increasing their professional experience, growing their self-esteem and improving their personal lives,” said Sanchez Mejorada. “This volunteer work illustrates how our Qualfon family fosters compassion, empathy, tolerance, gratitude, responsibility and a sense of community through our STRIDES company values: Service, Teamwork, Results, Integrity, Dignity, Encouragement and Spirituality.”

Some of the most notable Give@Work events from 2014 include Qualfon’s work with Habitat for Humanity in Guyana and its response to Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines. In Dumaguete, Philippines and in Georgetown, Guyana, South America, employees rebuilt homes for those in need. Additionally, in the hardest hit areas of Tacloban, Philippines, Qualfon volunteers adopted 35 families affected by the typhoon, offering friendship, resources, and outreach programs including emotional support and spiritual counseling.

The typhoon response program:

-Rebuilt three houses

-Repaired 15 houses

-Provided sources of livelihood to five families

-Allocated financial funding to those in the greatest need

-Sponsored two, three-day mission trips to Tacloban

-Partnered with clients, employees, friends, and the Catholic World Mission to make contributions for reconstruction efforts

“When people connect to the needs of others and exercise solidarity with them, they achieve emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Qualfon recognizes this powerful effect and sees it as an important part of our company’s calling to serve others. All of our 2014 Give@Work activities illustrate our dedication as a company to continually seek ways to respond to this calling. We believe that with God we can do the unimaginable,” said Sanchez Mejorada. “We dream of making the world a better place by improving the lives of individuals and communities.”
