We’re proud to partner with Mediaplanet for its Alzheimer’s Awareness campaign! Alzheimer’s is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Not only is this disease the nation’s most expensive condition to treat and care for, but it also has devastating effects on the patient and his or her caregivers. This campaign advocates for increased education about how to better the lives of those living with Alzheimer’s, their loved ones, and their caregivers.

Pioneers Improving Dementia Care – Koelsch Communities & Innovation Lab

Listen Live or Listen at Your Convenience Tuesday – November 8th, 2022 – 2pm EST, 1pm CST, 12pm MST, 11am PST & 7pm London GMT, 9pm South Africa SAST, and on the 9th at 6am in Australia AEDT

We are live today so call in and join the conversation! (323) 870-4602

Our Host, Lori La Bey talks with Benjamin Surmi the Director of Education and Culture at Koelsch Communities, which is a third-generation family business that operates specialized memory care, assisted and independent living communities across eight states.  They are located in  Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Montana, Texas and Washington.

Koelsch’s Innovation Lab pioneers best-practice techniques and technologies from around the world, all seeking a higher quality of life and better health outcomes for seniors. The Innovation Lab includes emerging technologies such:

o   A new audio headset that leapfrogs the long-standing problems of hearing aids (a huge problem for those living with memory issues);

o   A “de-digitizing” technology that enables seniors to enjoy family photos without the confusion of electronic devices;

o   An AI tool mimicking the voices of family members;

o   And various innovative brain health and communications techniques that have led to extraordinary memory and senior care breakthroughs. 

Developed in France and largely unknown in the U.S., “Humanitude” is a special set of techniques for treating those living with memory issues – and it has demonstrated an ability to significantly improve quality of life. As a pioneer of the “Humanitude” practices, Benjamin is an impassioned advocate of these simple, principled, compassionate practices that anyone can use. His stories of Koelsch’s pilot innovation projects are uplifting and encouraging, especially to individual caregivers and those concerned about eventually living with dementia and other memory challenges.

Drum Roll Please… Creating Comfortable Conversations About Dementia Care

The time has come for comfortable, informative conversations to hit the airwaves highlighting dementia care! We are thrilled to announce “Dementia Divas – Caregiving & The Arts.” Click the graphic above to check out the trailer featuring Teepa Snow, Dr. Macie Smith and Lori La Bey.

Dementia Divas coming soon on SaltBox TV, a free online streaming service.

Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio host, Lori La Bey will talks with Elion Caspi of Dementia Behavior Consulting and Cyndy Luzinski of Dementia Together about how can we and how should we support advocates living with dementia as their symptoms progress.  How do we create a transition plan?  When should a succession plan be discussed, developed, and implemented?  Does anyone currently have a plan in place?  If so, what does it look like?

Our goal with this program is to expose this topic first without putting anyone on the spot. We will do a follow up conversation inviting everyone to join us – Those living with dementia, families, and organizations large and small who would like to participate.

Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio will be holding an open forum in the future and we would love for you to join that conversation.
