NORWALK, CT – April 23, 2012– Senior Living Business Interactive will be hosting an invaluable online conference to address the imminent flood of dementia patients in senior living communities on Thursday, May 3rd, 2012. Out of the top ten causes of death in the United States, Alzheimer’s is the only one with both no cure and form of prevention. The number of Americans suffering from the disease is expected to quadruple to a whopping 13.5 million by 2050 (Alzheimer’s Association). Recognizing the increasing need for dementia care and memory support services, senior care providers are focusing on expanding their facilities and converting existing units to provide specialized support and care. A panel of senior living industry insiders will show senior living professionals and investors what the industry is doing to prepare.
The moderator of the conference, Carol Long, PhD, Principal, C. O. Long Consulting, will pose topical questions including: How does memory care differ from assisted living? Do you expect new providers to come into the industry as memory care specialists, along with or in place of existing providers who are developing/converting facilities to memory care? Do investors appear to be tuned into the growing need for memory care facilities? What are the benefits or drawbacks of stand-alone facilities (small or large) vs. specialized buildings vs. dedicated wings or units vs. small group homes?
Our hand-selected panel of senior living experts will address these issues and answer any pressing questions the audience chooses to submit, they include: Mary Underwood, Corporate Director of Memory Care Programming, Maplewood Senior Living, Andrew Sandler, CEO, Abe’s Garden, Kathleen Blake Curry, Executive Director, The Copper Ridge Institute, and Jeffrey Sands, Principal, H. J. Sims & Co.
The editor of Senior Living Business Interactive, Jane E. Zarem, invites you to take part in this must-see online conference. There are many options for investors, suppliers, and providers, however time is running short. Changes must begin now. Who needs specialized memory-support care? What promising innovations are on the drawing board? The expert panel will be on hand to provide answers.
This online conference, hosted by Senior Living Business Interactive, is expected to generate a stimulating discussion.  If you’re interested in seniors housing communities, senior living financing, senior living business strategies, or investing in the senior living industry, you won’t want to miss this crucial online conference entitled, ‘Dementia Care: Make Improvements Before The Looming Demand Hits Home’ on Thursday, May 3rd at 1:00 pm ET.
