Like so many others around the country, our employees are personally impacted by this disease; we are sisters, brothers, daughters and sons of people battling Alzheimer’s. Each dollar we raise and step we take is to honor those who have been touched by this devastating disease.

Raising Alzheimer’s Awareness

Posted by in Health and Fitness, Research, Special Events.

Did you know nearly 50 million people worldwide are living with dementia? And that every 66 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s?

It’s time to take an active role in reducing those numbers. A growing body of researches suggests that there are ways you can potentially reduce your risk of decline in cognitive abilities. In honor of our partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association® on The Longest Day, we wanted to share some key lifestyle routines you can adopt today that may help keep your brain healthy as you age.

GET MOVING- Studies suggest that cardiovascular activities can reduce your risk of cognitive decline. Engaging in cardiovascular activities increases your heart rate, and therefore increases blood flow to your brain and body. This type of activity also reduces the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol, which are linked to a higher risk of dementia. Working out doesn’t have to be strenuous on the body, it can be simple things such as power walking, jogging, riding a bike, or swimming.

BE CHALLENGED- Another great way to support your brain health is through mental stimulation. Those who continue to learn and challenge their brains have been shown to have a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Make it a point in your life to be mentally engaged. Learn a foreign language, practice a musical instrument, read books and newspapers, work on puzzles, or pick up a new hobby.

GET SOCIAL – Studies suggest that being social reduces your risk of depression, and may delay the onset of dementia. There are many ways to get or stay social. Participate in a club or group, volunteer, be actively involved with friend and family, or get involved with your local Alzheimer’s Association’s events. The key is to stay connected to causes, activities, and people that are important to you.

Research suggests the combined effects of the lifestyle routines above along with good nutritional habits have the most powerful impact. By following these simple steps you can help reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease and support a strong and healthy mind. To find out other ways to sharpen your cognitive abilities, visit the Alzheimer’s Association website today or join Senior Lifestyle in their quest to GET MOVING, BE CHALLNGED, and GET SOCIAL all while raising funds and awareness for those impacted by Alzheimer’s on The Longest Day.

If you have a loved one you are concerned about having Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, we invite you to learn more about our Senior Lifestyle® Memory Care program at select communities that provides the finest in memory care.

How Will You Spend the Longest Day?

Mother'sDay

June 20, the longest day of the year, adds some extra time to an otherwise standard day. This year, we’re using that extra time to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association via an educational event hosted at each of their more than 170 communities.

As a Global Partner for The Longest Day, Senior Lifestyle will host a free, online educational event titled “Effective Communication Strategies,” in addition to raising funds toward a company-wide goal of $50,000 to support the efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Through this event, participants will learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help connect and communicate with their loved ones at each stage of the disease.

Hollie Kemp, our Corporate Director of Resident Experience, said the partnership is a natural extension of Senior Lifestyle’s mission and values.

“We are committed to supporting those who live, support, care for, and walk alongside those on this journey. Like so many others around the country, our employees are personally impacted by this disease; we are sisters, brothers, daughters and sons of people battling Alzheimer’s,” Kemp said. “Our participation in The Longest Day is for our family, and Senior Lifestyle’s way of uniting to support the families around the nation so that no family is alone in their fight.”

Kemp added that this partnership is a way for us to actively provide support to the residents, families, employees and communities that call Senior Lifestyle home. Kemp’s passion for the project echoes that of the SL team members whose families face the daily battle against Alzheimer’s.

“Watching my Dad’s face when he was given the diagnosis of Early Stage Alzheimer’s was one of the hardest days of my life,” wrote an anonymous Senior Lifestyle team member. “From that day on, my commitment to the Alzheimer’s Association and to improving care and treatment for those living with this disease became more than a profession, it became my personal mission.”

The Longest Day event will occur at each of Senior Lifestyle’s communities accompanied by additional activities depending on the location. For more information and to find the location nearest you, visit http://alz.org/thelongestday and search for any of our communities.
