Re-NEWSM Memory Care Program
Protecting your memory may be one of the most important things you can do for your health. It helps to minimize memory loss by combating diseases that damage brain cells.
Companions for Living is taking an innovative and proactive step to better serve our clients. We are offering brain health assessments and activity plans through a special partnership with Hebrew HealthCare. A certified cognitive care specialist will meet with a client individually to assess thinking strengths and challenges and develop a customized memory support plan. Then, the client’s caregiver will be trained by the specialist to implement the plan in daily caring.
We are now offering this service at no additional cost to interested CFL clients with live-in or full-time caregivers, and will make it available to our other current clients at a 30% discount off the new-client rate.
Every 67 seconds, another person gets dementia in our country. “Right now, we spend two thirds of our country’s health care budget on older adults with multiple chronic conditions. Helping people grow older in good health—including good brain health—benefits them, their families, and their communities.” Ursula E. Bauer, Ph.D., M.P.H., Director of CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
Brain exercises alone may not prevent disease, but a holistic strategy of physical, spiritual, emotional and cognitive wellness is key to combating the ills of aging. Even if someone already has a memory problem, making new connections in the brain helps compensate for cell damage. “Use it or lose it” has never been more important advice, as we consider the millions of older adults who will need every tool available to enjoy their retirement and “golden years.”
