Arveda Alzheimer's Family Care, LLC is Taking Reservations for Its Two New Residences in Austin and Buda, Texas
Arveda Alzheimer’s Family Care, LLC, an Austin-based company that specializes in operating assisted-living residences, announces that its Buda and Austin Alzheimer's residences are near completion and are now accepting reservations for December move-in.
The Arveda team includes Rene Digby and Carol Hering, the recently-named Executive Directors of the Austin and Buda residences, respectively. Ms. Digby has worked in operations in San Antonio for the past thirteen years, beginning in the banking and real estate fields. She began working with seniors in San Antonio, through marketing for an assisted-living facility and her involvement in the Alzheimer’s Association. For the past five years, she has served as Executive Director of a 103-bed assisted-living and Alzheimer’s care facility.
Ms. Hering has served as the Admissions and Marketing Director for an assisted-living facility, and in 1999, helped to open a secured assisted-living program specifically for persons with Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, she has spent more than a decade working with families, helping them understand the complex diagnosis of dementia.
The Buda and Austin residences will offer the most attentive and state-of-the-art care available in the Austin area. They will follow the “social model” of care, which emphasizes individual living spaces, a home-like environment, and the active participation of the residents in stimulating activities. Residents will enjoy furnished private rooms in a secured home environment, with service plans designed using input from the residents and their families. The staff will be specifically trained in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, and will provide an array of engaging daily activities. Arveda is proud to announce that its facilities will be the first in Austin to implement the award-winning Vigil Dementia System, which uses non-invasive sensors in the residents’ rooms to alert staff when a resident needs assistance, thereby maintaining both the resident’s privacy while providing safe and attentive care.
Both residences are scheduled to open in early December 2008. Prospective residents and families are encouraged to call (512) 828-8150 or visit www.arvedacare.com to learn more. Certified Alzheimer’s license is pending.
