Specializing in older adult issues
Shore Neurocognitive Health and Regent Healthcare partner for CONNECTed CARE™
We are pleased to announce CONNECTed CARE™ , a dementia education and behavioral management training training class for professional caregivers. With our partner, Regent Healthcare, Shore Neurocognitive Health developed a multi-level certification program focused on the unique challenges of in-home care. Regent’s professional caregivers will learn the tools and knowledge to successfully care for patients with Alzheimer’s disease and the related dementias throughout the disease process.
An evidence-based program, CONNECTed CARE curriculum takes a three-fold strategy:
improving understanding of disease processes that cause dementia,
behavioral management training for the non-cognitive behavioral symptoms of dementia and
hands on instruction (“learning by doing.”)
The positive outcomes will include better overall patient care, a possible reduction in psychiatric medication use, reduced hospital admissions and/or trips to the ER, and caregiver injury. The program is exclusively available for Regent Healthcare employees for the benefit of their clientele.

Keep your brain active
We are told to in order to age well, we must keep our bodies in good working order. Health care providers encourage us to eat a balanced diet, exercise and take medications as prescribed. But what about our brain. It is critical to work your brain as well. Our last blog post talked about eating your veggies for brain health. But it is also important to exercise your brain. There are many ways to keep your brain active, including reading, socializing and playing games.
Although this may not prevent a disease process such as Alzheimer's disease, according to Dr. Gary Small, director of the UCLA Longevity Center at the university's Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior and professor of psychiatry at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine, keeping your brain active may help with an individual compensate for memory deficits.
