Ridgeland, MS - (5/11/17) Beau Ridge Memory Care, located at 650 Highland Colony Parkway in Ridgeland, MS, was Mississippi’s first and only community to be presented with the Dementia Care Specialists Distinguished Provider Award during a ceremony held on Tuesday, May 9th at the community. The award recognizes select memory care communities that demonstrate excellence in resident care, specifically in cultivating an environment and team that allows their residents to enjoy the absolute greatest level of function, safety, and quality of life possible.

 

The Distinguished Care Provider award was presented to Beau Ridge by Sharon Host, a member of the Dementia Care Specialists’ team. The award represents Beau Ridge’s unique commitment providing an exceptional abilities-based approach to care. “The Distinguished Provider status represents an absolute seal of approval from industry leaders,” says Host. “It is only offered to communities that represent the highest standard and quality of specialized Alzheimer’s/Dementia care.”

Beau Ridge is owned and operated by Schonberg & Associates, a leading specialized senior living provider that also owns Bay Cove Assisted Living & Memory Care in Biloxi, Alden Pointe Assisted Living & Memory Care in Hattiesburg, and other successful communities throughout Louisiana and South Carolina. Beau Ridge Memory Care is the Greater Jackson Area’s only free-standing memory care community devoted exclusively to serving residents with Alzheimer’s/Dementia, and it was developed specifically to meet the unique needs of the residents it serves. Each team member at Beau Ridge Memory Care is specially trained in Alzheimer's and dementia care, and the community’s individualized wellness and activities programs are custom-designed to enable each resident to function at the highest possible level and live their best lives.

“Beau Ridge Memory Care is so unique because it truly offers a level of individualized care that can’t be found anywhere else,” says Debby Gooch, Beau Ridge’s Executive Director. “Leading a community that is able to focus solely on memory care is such a gratifying experience, because we are able to devote all of our efforts and resources especially to customizing each resident’s experience in a way that allows them to live up to their own highest potential each day. Everything about our community is tailored specifically to each resident’s own abilities and preferences, from the activities they do to the level of assistance we provide.”

More than five million Americans are currently living with dementia, and it’s projected that almost 15 million will be affected by the year 2050. Beau Ridge is proud to offer the specialized level of care and expertise needed to serve as a partner and resource for individuals and families in the Greater Jackson Area affected by Alzheimer’s/Dementia.

 

Alden Pointe Assisted Living & Memory Care Wins Excellence In Action Award For The Second Year Running

After winning the Excellence in Action Award last year, Alden Pointe Assisted Living & Memory Care was again honored with the 2016-2017 Excellence in Action Award by National Research Corporation. This award recognizes long term care and senior living organizations that achieve the highest levels of satisfaction excellence, as demonstrated by overall resident or employee satisfaction scores that fall within the top 10 percent of the My InnerView product database. Alden Pointe was the only non-skilled nursing facility to be recognized with this national commendation in the entire state of Mississippi.

 "The Excellence in Action award isn't just any quality performance award," said Jason Stevens, Senior Vice President of Business Development at National Research. "Rather, it's an award that defines what it means for providers to provide the right kind of care—patient-centered care—for their residents, families, and employees. It's an honor and well-deserved accomplishment for repeat winners and new organizations alike."

In order to be considered for the Excellence in Action Award, facilities must have completed a customer or workforce satisfaction survey during the previous calendar year. Winners must have also scored in the top 10 percent of qualifying facilities on the question “What is your recommendation of this facility to others” or “What is your recommendation of this facility as a place to work?” in terms of the percentage of respondents rating the facility as “excellent.”

 “We are very honored that our community was chosen for this award based on the positive feedback of our residents and team members,” says Alden Pointe Executive Director Kathy McPhail. “It is the people who make up our community- our employees, residents, and their family members- that make it such an excellent place to live and work.”

Schonberg & Associates Named #1 Midsize Employer in Greater New Orleans Area

The Times Picayune selects the assisted living/memory care provider as a Top Workplace for the second year in a row.

NEW ORLEANS, LA – (3/20/16) – Schonberg and Associates was honored as a 2016 Top Workplace for the second year in a row by The Times-Picayune and NOLA.com. The Top Workplaces are selected solely based upon the results of employee surveys conducted among all employees. Several aspects of workplace culture are measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

In addition to being honored as a Top Workplace again, Schonberg and Associates was also selected out of all of the midsize Top Workplaces as the #1 Midsize Employer in the Greater New Orleans area. Schonberg and Associates CFO Stuart Coleman accepted the award on behalf of the company, and attributes employee satisfaction to Schonberg’s unique culture, calling it a place where “you walk in and you feel a sense of home and belonging.”

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.”

Schonberg & Associates is the owner and operator of 11 independent living, assisted living, and memory care communities throughout Louisiana, South Carolina, and Mississippi, including Vista Shores in New Orleans, Ashton Manor in Luling, and Park Provence in Slidell. Schonberg & Associates recently developed and designed Beau Provence, the only memory care exclusive community in the greater New Orleans area and recipient of the Dementia Care Specialists’ national Distinguished Provider Award, which recognizes communities that provide exceptional person-centered care. Owner and managing partner David Schonberg founded Schonberg & Associates in 2001 because of his deep-seated belief that every senior has the right to a quality of life that allows them to thrive and find joy and purpose in every day. He looks forward to continuing to provide the Greater New Orleans area with the highest quality of senior living and care, stating that “Schonberg & Associates’ expertise and vision is at the forefront of our industry, and we are committed to continuing to redefine the standard of excellence in senior living.”

Maintain The Magic of Christmas: Making the Most of the Holidays with your Memory-Impaired Loved One

When most of us hear the word “Christmas,” we are flooded with memories and fond recollections of past holidays spent feasting and feting with those we love most. These memories of holiday traditions make us anticipate the moment we can do it all over again.

But what if you had no recollection of Grandma’s famous sweet potatoes, or you couldn’t recall why everyone gathered at the fireplace for the yearly Christmas blessing? Without the ability to recall the memories that come to mean so much to us, the holidays can feel confusing and stressful.

This situation can potentially challenge or overwhelm many individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia and their families during the hectic holiday season . With sensitivity to the affected senior’s needs and appropriate adjustments, the whole family can relax and enjoy those classic holiday traditions. We’ve compiled some tips for ensuring a smooth, stress-free holiday for everyone involved:

(1) Keep in mind that the heart remembers what the mind does not. Your memory-impaired mom might not remember her favorite Christmas song, but you better believe that her toes will start tapping when you play it; she may even sing and dance along! Your uncle might not remember that coconut cake is his favorite holiday dessert, but that doesn’t mean he won’t enjoy every last bite of it. Underneath the memory loss and its many symptoms, your loved one is still the exact same person with the same feelings and preferences. Carefully consider the individual’s favorite holiday traditions and make a point to include those things in your celebration. Bringing your loved one’s most cherished memories to the table will ignite a physical response that goes deeper than what the mind recalls, creating the most enjoyable atmosphere possible.

(2) Understand and respect your loved one’s limitations. When one loses their memory, they come to rely heavily on their daily routine. Holiday celebrations interrupt the regularity of a practiced routine, and the excitement, crowd, or elevated noise can be potentially stressful. When planning to host a holiday celebration that includes your loved one, consider these factors and plan accordingly. If you usually celebrate the holidays with a large extended family, consider hosting a more intimate get together including family members with whom your loved one is familiar.  Providing a quiet getaway space where your loved one can relax will better allow him or her enjoy the gathering. Take your loved one’s regular routine into account as much as possible while planning, and take care to make only minor deviations. Help your family member get adequate rest and hydration, avoid over-stimulation, and provide plenty of quiet time. The closer your family is able to stick to their usual routine, the more relaxed and open to celebrating they will be.

(3) Keep the mood light & festive. Focus on creating small ways for your loved one to feel like an active participant in seasonal traditions. For instance, involve them in wrapping Christmas presents by having them apply the tape, or designate them as “Santa” when gifts are being distributed- these small but important contributions will keep your loved one engaged in a positive way. Guests with whom your loved one butts heads, or young children who may not understand why their grandparents are “acting funny”, can unknowingly say or do things that may agitate your loved one. Your foresight into situations like these can help you adequately prepare your guests to interact with your loved one in a way that is constructive to their experience.

(4) HAVE FUN! The holidays are a precious time which you can create more cherished holiday memories for you and your family to carry with you long after that person is gone. Certainly, planning a celebration involves logistics and roadblocks, but managing your loved one’s memory care needs can be easier considering the tips we’ve provided. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself as a caregiver- if preparing a holiday meal while trying to manage your loved one’s experience is making you feel overstressed, have dinner catered, or make this year’s celebration a potluck feast. Leave the worries about holiday décor and perfect gifts behind, and instead prioritize spending quality time with your loved one, reminiscing and getting reacquainted with who they are today. The day shouldn’t just be special for them- it should also be special for YOU!
