I’m a registered nurse with nearly 30 years of nursing experience and the owner of Senior Connections.
I grew up in Bergen County, New Jersey. Like you, I’m a caregiver. My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease 10 years ago. My family and I face many of the same struggles you do. That's why I designed our center to provide the kind of care I want for my mother.
The activities, socialization, and cognitive exercises we do at the center have helped my mother and our clients maintain their levels of cognitive function longer. It slows the progression of their illness. And the busy, stimulating day at Senior Connections helps my mom (and me, the caregiver) sleep well at night.
Since opening Senior Connections in 2009, I constantly research Alzheimer’s, dementia and the brain. In 2013, I introduced a Brain Health Program. It's included in the day care curriculum and is available to non-day care clients by appointment. In 2013, I also introduced Geriatric Care Counseling services.
I invite you to visit us at Senior Connections. Meet our friendly staff and experience the special community we have built for our clients.
A close friend of mine told me that there was a "dementia place" on Franklin Turnpike and suggested that I look into the services they offered. She knows that I am the sole caregiver for my husband who was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, and she was concerned that I needed support.
I am forever in her debt for pointing me to Senior Connections. My husband started going there for the Brain Fitness program with Kay and loves it. Now he also attends the adult day care program two days a week. I can't say enough about the staff. They are all caring, compassionate, upbeat, and it is obvious that it is more than a job for them. It is a passion. Not only have they all been great with my husband, but they have been very supportive of me, too. The staff and the program are a Godsend. My husband and I also find comfort in the presence of the adorable canine staff member, Sayde. She puts a smile on our faces every time she greets us.
I would recommend Senior Connections to anyone who is a caregiver for a loved one.
Please come for a visit. You'll be glad you did.
