Alaska day program first national center of excellence (not Bethel)

This is outstanding and goes along with our nationally certified senior center in Kodiak.

Salvation Army center lauded for dementia care program

The Salvation Army Serendipity Adult Day Center in Anchorage has received the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America award as an “Excellence in Care Dementia Program of Distinction.” The Salvation Army center is the first adult day care to receive the national honor. The center offers meaningful activities daily to about 30 adults with special needs, the foundation said. The award “validates what I feel is the culmination of years of hard work constantly trying to be on the cutting edge of new and innovative ideas in working with individuals who live with dementia and their families,” said Jesalyn Stanton, the center’s executive director.

Press release

NEW YORK, NY – The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) recently awarded its “Excellence in Care Dementia Program of Distinction” status to the nation’s first adult day center and three more assisted living facilities that have achieved AFA’s nationwide standard of excellence for facilities that provide care to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or related illnesses. The Salvation Army Serendipity Adult Day Center, Anchorage, AK, is the first adult day center to receive the distinction. Also awarded Excellence in Care status are the memory care units within these facilities: Warwick Forest, Newport News, VA; The Catholic Care Center, Bel Aire, KS; and The Birches, Clarendon Hills, IL.

In Bethel, we’ve made some progress. Those in the day program are no longer segregated to the loft upstairs. It also seems that older people are no longer forced to enroll in the program (in order to bring in more Medicaid money). The same old puzzles and BINGO are available for everyone.

The assisted living home is still promised by the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corp. — to open in 2005 next to the assisted living home built in 1997 by AVCP Housing and never used as such (then promised to start construction in 2006 for 2008 opening https://theelderlies.wordpress.com/2007/01/21/bethels-assisted-living-home-construction-2006/) and now promised for 2nnn Bethel senior day center sign

In the meantime, the City of Bethel raised the sales tax by 20% starting next week– not to fund senior programs or public transportation or disaster preparedness or public infrastructure or to keep the utility rates from going up, but for annual maintenance of a not-yet built swimming pool. As one local elite stated, the poor and elders won’t feel the regressive tax because they get food stamps.

The tax increase won’t go towards any improvement in “community policing” either. Bethel relies heavily on the police to do the things neighbors, family, and friends would rather not. There are now 3 police officers, instead of 12. The elder abuse hot line [1-800-478-9996] was forewarned last August when this became obvious. Unfortunately, the State of Alaska elder abuse hotline is just one person, although assisted by one or two field investigators.

Brookdale Foundation RFP National Group Respite Program

from

http://fdncenter.org/newsletters/

12) Brookdale Foundation Invites Applications for National Group Respite Program
Deadline: July 6, 2006

The Brookdale Foundation’s

http://www.brookdalefoundation.org/

National Group Respite Program awards seed grants to organizations to develop and implement social model group respite programs. These day programs serve elders with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia and their family caregivers.

The goals of the program are to offer opportunities for persons with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia to engage in a program of meaningful social and recreational activities in a secure and supportive setting in order to maximize their cognitive and social abilities; and to provide relief and support to family members and other primary caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. In addition to providing respite care and enjoyable group activities, the programs offer family caregivers access to services such as counseling, support groups, information and referral, and training and education.

The program supports local community organizations through small seed grants, along with training and technical assistance, to develop dementia-specific social model day service programs. The program’s goal is to foster the development of high-quality, cost-effective programs to complement existing community based services for people with dementia, and to encourage and promote grantees to become self-sustaining.

Funding will be available beginning November 2006 for up to fifteen programs. Funds may be requested by private nonprofit 501(c)(3) or public agencies to develop a new dementia-specific social model group respite program.

Selected organizations will receive grant support of $7,500 in year one, renewable for $3,000 in year two; all-expense-paid participation for one staff member at the Group Respite Program Orientation and Training Conference; and ongoing technical assistance and support. The sponsoring organization must provide a 100 percent match of hard dollars and/or substantive in-kind support.

Visit the Brookdale Foundation Web site for complete program information and application materials.
