Health screenings are important for all ages but especially for our Seniors. Some of the most common aging health problems include memory concerns, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, heart disease, pain, incontinence, isolation and much more. It is very important to make sure screenings are done as often as needed.

How to be the best Caregiver for Seniors

How to be the best Caregiver for Seniors

Caregivers play a special role in the lives of Seniors. Here are a few ways to be a great caregiver. Always encourage them and build their confidence. Remind them of how wonderful and loved they are. Remind them of their successes. Talk about things they did growing up and as a younger adult and things that make them smile. Always show and exercise compassion to them. Sit and talk about how they are feeling and what they are going through and LISTEN TO THEM!! Offer words of encouragement and check in on them often. Remind them of how special they are and that they are loved.

Ingredients:
5 ounces Baby Spinach
1 cup Strawberry (sliced)
½ cup Blueberry
½ Red Onion (thinly sliced)
1 Sweet Apple (cored, halved and thinly sliced)
1 cup Candied Walnuts (chopped)

1 tablespoon Honey
1 clove Garlic (minced)
¼ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Pepper
⅔ cup Feta Cheese (as desired)

Directions:
For the dressing, push a straw through the strawberries from the tip to the green top to remove the hull. (Or you can cut it off with a knife!) Add the rest of the dressing ingredients. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate. Cut strawberries, apple, and onion into slices.
Combine all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle with desired amount of dressing and toss to coat. (Spinach wilts easily, don’t add dressing until ready to eat!) Sprinkle feta cheese on top and serve.

Associate of the Month

Stephanie Ramos

I was born in Florida, moved here at 13 to help with my great grandfather (his name is Jack) I am named after him. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and needed care, So me and my dad took care of him in until I was 17 when he passed away. Taking care of him gave me a heart for the people who suffer from this horrible disease. I love the beach and I am a country girl. I love to be outside and read a good book. I love being a mom to my 2 girls, they give me so much life. I strive to show everyone grace & love every day. Jackie has a huge heart, and she loves and treats all our residents as if they are her own family. We are so blessed to have her on our team at Madison Heights and Kelley Place.

Mr. Geri Patrick Weevil

When Kristie Carty, Sales Specialist for Atlas Senior Living, saw how much our community loved Weevil Way, she knew right away she wanted to be part of this program and give back to the community

Madison Heights and Kelley Place is the first specialty care community to focus on memory care in Enterprise, Alabama. Naturally, their weevil had to represent the individuals and families who suffer from Alzheimer’s and dementia daily. 
Mr. Geri Patrick Weevil is dressed in a purple sports coat, a representation of the Alzheimer’s Association. His navy-blue slacks are the signature color for Atlas Senior living. His cul-de-sac hairstyle, glasses, and cane are a few common sights seen when visiting the beautiful people who reside in the community. It is a shared hope that Mr. Geri Patrick Weevil will inspire and encourage more people to educate themselves regarding Memory Care communities, and to know there is help right around the corner.
