WFTV-Channel 9 News Anchor Martie Salt to present Emmy-nominated Blindsided: The Reality of Caring for Aging Parents at One Senior Place Greater Orlando Educational Seminar

martie-salt-wftv-channel-9-aOrlando, FL – One Senior Place Greater Orlando will host Blindsided: The Realities of Aging, on Wednesday, December 7 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at its offices in Altamonte Springs. This educational seminar, designed to provide critical information on the costs associated with elder care and how to prepare for them, is FREE and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to call (321) 751-6771 and RSVP to the event to reserve seating.

Co-sponsored by LTC Advisors, headlining the event is Martie Salt, WFTV-Channel 9 news anchor, who will screen her highly informative, Emmy-nominated TV special, Blindsided: The Reality of Caring for Aging Parents. After the screening, she will take questions from the audience and discuss her personal journey as a caregiver.

During her TV special, Salt took an in-depth look at the high costs associated with taking care of elderly parents and why most people are not prepared for this inevitability. She also presented sobering information regarding how individuals cannot depend on Medicare or Medicaid to pay for long-term care services. While interviewing Central Florida elder care professionals, it was revealed that most people do not have the finances to carry them through their expected lifetimes.

This growing healthcare crisis will affect millions of Americans — both the elderly and children of aging parents — as the baby boomer generation continues to age. Preparing for the inevitable realities of aging and their associated costs are tantamount to creating financial stability and peace of mind. The goal of this seminar is to educate and inform. Other expert presenters will include an elder law attorney, long term care planning specialist, geriatric care manager, and social worker.

Serenades by Sonata Lifelong Learning Memory Care Partner Team Elliott Receives Prestigious Award

Submitted by Shelly Edsen, Sonata Senior Living, One Senior Place Resident Business

LElliott award 6.2013Orlando, FL – July 9, 2013 – Sonata Senior Living, an Orlando-based owner, developer and operator of senior living communities, acknowledges their provider of comprehensive activities programming, Team Elliott Education and their leader, Leigh Elliott, in her recent C-Level Award by the Orlando Business Journal for COO of the Year, 2013 Small Business Category.

The C-Level Awards recognize Central Florida’s top chief officers in a variety of areas representing small, medium, and large companies as well as government and non-profit agencies.

“Alzheimer’s currently afflicts more than 5.5 million Americans and that number is expected to increase dramatically as our population ages,” said Sonata CEO and President, Stuart J. Beebe. “As part of Sonata’s commitment to provide world class healthcare across the care continuum, they recognize that a growing number of residents and their loved ones will be faced with the need for specialized memory care. It is a privilege to bring Team Elliott Education to our Serenades Memory Care Communities and to be associated with the visionary leadership that is redefining the way seniors are cared for in our country,” said Beebe.

“An educational format for activities programming lends itself to seeing all that is possible for our residents and through Team Elliott Education we are able to provide them with opportunities – always with the goal to encourage, engage, and empower residents by guaranteeing 100% success. Utilizing a third-party provider brings the benefit of intensely researched, completely prepared, and fully tested programs that are always fresh and stimulating as well as having team members that specialize in the area they present”.

Five years ago while assisting an 80 year old woman in her desire to read, Leigh Elliott of Team Elliott Education realized that all people, regardless of birth year and acuity, deserved the opportunity for age appropriate, intellectual stimulation. Raising the awareness and providing for a higher standard of intellectual care within healthcare communities fuels the engine that drives the concept behind Team Elliott Education.

“To address these intellectual needs, Team Elliott Education offers Comprehensive, Session Specific and Field programs for independent, assisted and memory care communities,” says Shelley Esden, SVP of Operations for Sonata Senior Living. With ongoing daily research and preparation, Team Elliott creates the unique, engaging and intellectually stimulating lifestyle programming that is the foundation of Serenades memory care programming and offered within all Serenades by Sonata communities.

Sonata Senior Living is committed to offering the latest technologies and innovations that will continue to help us find moments of joy for our residents as well as to continue to raise the bar for memory care. Serenades is proud to be a partner of Team Elliott’s award-winning Lifelong Learning Program, an integral part of our communities. Their iPad App, Team Elliott Challenges, features a concentration game and foreign language word search, both reflecting the contributions and interests of Team Elliott’s Lifelong Learner participants from memory care. A third game is in development. The App is currently available on iTunes for iPads.

Serenades by Sonata is managed and operated by Sonata Senior Living, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sonata Health Care. The Sonata team is comprised of experienced senior housing executives who have successfully managed over 22 Central Florida senior housing communities over the past 17 years. Sonata Senior Living is committed to raising the bar for memory care assisted living, providing exceptional care and unparalleled service in a setting that aims to enhance each resident’s quality of life.

Sonata currently operates Serenades memory care communities in Longwood and Winter Garden, with another location under construction in The Villages. The company’s flagship community, Sonata at Melbourne, is a new luxury rental continuum of care campus offering independent living, assisted living, and memory care assisted living.
