NORWALK, Conn.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Senior Living Business Interactive will host an important webcast on Thursday, October 24, 2013, at 1:00 PM ET, to address the existing memory care inventory available today, which is a fraction of the number that will be needed in the near future. Whether constructing a stand-alone facility or repurposing a cluster of existing units to memory care, developers and providers alike are recognizing the opportunity for organizational growth while fulfilling a greatly increasing need. But operating a memory care facility—or repurposing independent living units or an assisted living wing into memory care—is not as easy as you may think. Resident safety, staff training, amenities, activities…even technological tools all differ for this category of residents.
Michael Smith, Executive Director at Alzheimer’s Research Center of Connecticut will moderate the webcast. He will pose topical questions such as: Should you add a memory care facility or wing—what’s really involved? What does a memory care program cost, and what can you charge? Can a memory care program enhance underutilized properties? What are the hallmarks of a vibrant memory care environment? How do you minimize risk to residents and to your organization?
Our hand-selected panel of experts will address all these issues and more—and answer any pressing questions that the audience chooses to submit. Our experts include: Michelle Egerer, Senior Vice President–Operations, Communities, Silverado Senior Living; Letitia Jackson, VP of Health Services/Programs, Senior Star at Wexford Place; Curtis King, Vice President, Herbert J. Sims & Co. and Eric McRoberts, Partner, RLPS Architects.
