Norton Neuroscience Institute Memory Center and the Alzheimer's Association are hosting a virtual educational series on dementia and Alzheimer's disease. These classes are designed for patients and their caregivers to learn about these memory conditions. Classes will be led by Norton Neuroscience Institute memory care specialists trained in caring for patients with dementia and memory loss.
Dr. Gregory E. Cooper, M.D., Ph.D. will discuss medications and therapies for dementia and give an update on dementia research.
Alzheimer's disease and dementia are not a normal part of aging. These diseases cause changes in thinking that often are accompanied by new behaviors. Join Dr. Rachel N. Hart, D.O. to learn the difference between Alzheimer's and dementia. Alzheimer's stages and risk factors, current research and treatments available for some symptoms, and Alzheimer's Association resources.
For centuries, we've known that health of the brain and the body are connected. Now, science is able to provide insights into how to take care of our physical and cognitive health as we age. Join Dr. Christopher B. Shields, M.D. to learn about research on the direct impact of quality of sleep on brain health and cognition.
These classes will be held online via Zoom. Registration is required. To register, call 502-629-1234, option 4 or go to NortonHealthcare.com/NNIClasses
Join Vitality Living St. Matthews from 1:30-4 p.m. on October 29 for spooky (and safe) trick-or-treating hosted by staff and residents.
The CDC Operation Expanded Testing (OpET) program provides access to free COVID-19 PCR tests for assisted living residents and staff, through December 31, 2022. The program provides specimen collection supplies, shipping materials, laboratory testing, and results reporting, and providers may receive up to a four-week supply at a time.
Be sure to read the FAQs to learn how the program works. The FAQs refer to schools in a few places and don't mention long-term care. However, the program is designed for other "congregate settings" which include assisted living facility residents and staff.
The CDC has issued revised COVID-19 guidance to include recommendations for testing, isolation, and other mitigation strategies.
The agency still recommends testing in high-risk settings, to include long-term care facilities, irrespective of vaccination status. Additionally, individuals who are symptomatic or have a known or suspected exposure should test.
It also recommends continuing to wear a mask through day 10 or after two sequential negative tests 48-hours apart.
Infection prevention and control is one of the most important aspects of senior living. As our population ages, the risk of infection increases, so it is important to have systems in place that protect our residents from illnesses and keep them healthy.
Argentum has announced that they're expanding the COVID-19 blog to include some of the latest research, news and advances in infection prevention and control. Click the link below to read more.
