ALZHEIMERS COACHELLA VALLEY PRESENTS
MEMORY CARE PLACEMENT: EXPLORING THE OPTIONS
Friday, Oct. 30, 10 -11:30 a.m. Free Live Streaming Webinar
Learn more about Memory Care in an assisted living setting with options in the Coachella Valley during Memory Care Placement: Exploring the Options panel discussion via Zoom live streaming on Friday, Oct. 30, 10-11:30 a.m. The discussion is presented by Alzheimers Coachella Valley as part of its Traveling the Journey Together education program.
Representatives from four of the desert’s top senior living communities include Jack Poyfair, executive director of Vista Cove at Rancho Mirage; Jennifer Morton, sales director at Brookdale Rancho Mirage; Matt Siegel, owner/operator of Attentive Manor in Desert Hot Springs and Cathedral City; and Heather Scott, executive director, Desert Cove Senior Living, Desert Hot Springs.
Vista Cove at Rancho Mirage is a dedicated Alzheimer’s/dementia care residential center. Poyfair will talk about their programs and why a dedicated dementia care community is different.
Morton will explain how Brookdale Rancho Mirage’s three levels of care – assisted living, for those who need a low to moderate level of care; Clare Bridge memory care center; and its onsite skilled nursing unit – can provide integrated services to its residents.
Siegel describes Attentive Manor’s personalized care in both locations for those with memory loss.
Scott will discuss providing memory care to those who qualify for Medi-Cal through Desert Cove’s Medical Waiver program.
The webinar is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, call Alzheimers Coachella Valley at (760) 776-3100 or email email@example.com
Traveling the Journey Together meets alternating Fridays at 10 a.m. where experts in a variety of fields cover such topics as cognitive aging, fall prevention, nutrition, preparing for doctor visits, in-home care and placement, among other pertinent subjects to those on an Alzheimer’s journey.
