Partnership with Memory Care Experts to Develop a Next Level Memory Care Program

“Here at Avista Senior Living, we believe that Memory Care needs to be much more than Assisted Living with locked doors. Because of this, we have partnered with Memory Care Experts Randy Vawdrey (Nurse Practitioner) and Eric Collett (Dementia Expert) to develop new and innovative ways of providing memory care. We are very excited about what the future holds and for what we are developing together. Over the last few days, we spent some real focused time training our teams and learning together about how proper sleep, exercise, and diets can improve brain function!

Research suggests that there are multiple contributors to dementia. Dementia results when synapse-destroying processes outpace the synapse-building processes in the brain. Patterned after the ReCODE Report™ protocol by Dr. Dale Bredesen, we are developing a community-based brain-restoring protocol within our memory care and assisted-living communities. This protocol allows our residents to do better and feel better and makes their living experience less chaotic and confusing.

Stay tuned for more amazing things to come!” -Craig Ahlstrom Jr.
