RAMSEY, N.J., Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Memory Care Living announces its inaugural event in a speaker series designed to provide cutting-edge information on aging to the local community. Dr. Bill Thomas, founder of The Eden Alternative, will deliver his address, "Dementia Reconsidered: Exploring New Ideas About Life with Dementia," at the event on September 15, 2016 at the Sheraton Mahwah.
"Dr. Bill Thomas is a rock star," says Amber Williams, CEO of Raydian Properties, the management company that oversees the 14 Memory Care Living communities in New Jersey. "When we decided to launch this speaker series to educate the community on how culture change impacts providing care to our Elders, Dr. Bill was the only choice as our kickoff speaker. His leadership and innovation in this field are unparalleled and we are thrilled to be able to sponsor this engagement."
Memory Care Living is a niche product in providing care to Elders with Alzheimer's and dementia. Their communities are 16-unit residential houses built on the success of the Green House model of care championed by the culture change of The Eden Alternative. Like Dr. Bill, Memory Care Living is committed to challenging the stereotypes of aging and providing care with a special emphasis on independence and individuality.
This speaking engagement featuring Dr. Bill Thomas, which is free to the public, is just one of the ways in which Memory Care Living seeks to be a resource to their local communities. Additionally, they will be providing free respite services on-site at the event for caregivers who would not be able to attend otherwise. For questions on this service or to attend the event, contact Pamela Cummings at 201-368-7070 or firstname.lastname@example.org
