Learn Why Early Diagnosis Is So Important When It Comes To Dementia?

A BIG THANK YOU to Dr. Lakelyn Hogan Eichenberger with Home Instead who invited me on her live video chat to discuss early diagnosis and why it’s so important.

So many people worry about changes in cognition from individuals who are sensing a change in their own lives, to family and friends. This chat will give you some ideas of common changes people question, what could be causing the changes, who to go see if you are concerned, to how to approach the conversation with a loved one, and even how to respond to someone who is telling you they are worried about cognitive changes.

As always with Lakelyn, this is a positive empowering chat loaded with resources and and ideas for you.

Seni & Senior Helpers Tackle Incontinence Together Part 4 of 4

Thursday April 14th – 2pm EST, 1pm CST, 12pm MST, 11am PST & 7pm London GMT, 9pm South Africa SAST, and on the April 15th at 6am in Australia AEDT

Watch the Video Interview Below

Our Host, Lori La Bey will be talking with Deanna Vigliotta and Laurie Gredlein with Seni, whose parent company is TZMO who produces and sells premium adult incontinence products. Also joining us are Marisa Biserna, Linda Panarella, and Robin Rountree all in leadership roles with Senior Helpers. Linda also works for Town Square Adult Day Enrichment Centers.

Deanna Vigliotta is the National Sales Manager for Seni, known for their premium adult incontinence products.  She has an extensive 30-year background in healthcare sales management.  Deanna joined Seni, in early 2019, to help expand the Seni brand in the US market by educating both consumers and senior living communities about the importance of choosing high quality fully breathable products. 

Laurie Gredlein has been working in the healthcare and the senior living industry field for over 15yrs.  She is an Account Executive for Seni in the Northeast region and resides in NJ.

Marisa Biserna is an RN who has worked in home care and hospice for more than 25 years.   She is the newest member to the Senior Helpers leadership team, overseeing the operations of (3) Senior Helpers locations in New Jersey.  Marisa’s mother lives with Alzheimer’s, and she is committed to dignity in aging.  

Linda Panarella has over 15 years’ experience managing personalized care to seniors, and is a Certified Dementia Practitioner and a PAC Certified Independent Trainer. She is the Director of Business Development for Senior Helpers and Town Square Adult Day Enrichment Centers. Linda serves as a consultant for the development and construction of the first Town Squares in NJ.

Robin Rountree is the Marketing Manager for Senior Helpers, Orlando. When Robin’s mother was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia, she learned all she could about being a caregiver, getting assistance, and building a care team, even if those lessons came from her own mistakes. The care her mother received from Senior Helpers was a game-changer and made a huge impact on her quality of life. After her mother passed away, Robin chose to leave her broadcasting career to help other family members on their caregiving journeys by working for Senior Helpers. Robin also hosts the podcast “Informed Aging” and is also an advisory team member of Central Florida Lewy Body.
