Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) October 20, 2006
Platinum Television Group is pleased to announce the selection of Lakeview Ranch and The Dementia Care Foundation, of Darwin, MN, for a segment on “Seniors and Assisted Living” on its national television series, “Today’s Family.” It will be part of a series on “Touching Hearts and Changing Lives.” The segment will air nationally on Oxygen TV and/or W.E. Women’s Entertainment, and regionally on PAX-TV in major markets nationwide.
The Lakeview Ranch Model of Specialized Dementia Care which has support from the Dementia Care Foundation is committed to individuals and their families who suffer and face the many challenges of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Access for ALL to facilities that provide this high quality care is provided. The Lakeview Ranch staff ratio is 1:3 opposed to 1:8 in most places. Staff is available 24 hours daily, which eases the pressure on families who worry about a loved one requiring constant care and supervision, which they aren’t able to provide.
As a leader in the industry of educational programming, Platinum Television Group recognizes the importance of finding the right senior residential community that provides quality of life at its best in which residents function independently, as well as provide the appropriate necessary assistance. This segment will educate and raise viewer awareness about options available to them for seniors, dealing with moderate to severe dementia and making the best choices for assisted living to allow the elderly to live with dignity.
Dementia care requires understanding, involvement, and resources. Viewers will learn about dementia and Alzheimer’s care, residential activities, using a safe rewarding lifestyle that shows the art of the possible. They explore ways in which the family and others can get involved through sponsorship, volunteer programs, and contributing finances and resources.
Families equipped with the right knowledge about senior residential community living find comfort in knowing that they are better able to make informed decisions for their senior loved ones, select the best programs and services, obtain resources and choose the best community to facilitate their needs. Lakeview Ranch/Dementia Care Foundation makes it all possible. There is assistance for those who need it.
"My passion is to ensure for others, that which was not available for my own mother in our current Long Term Care system. An appropriate model of specialized dementia care that focuses on meeting our emotional and spiritual needs in addition to physical needs is a must. "The Healthcare Crisis is NOW" "Join me today, to assure that Specialized Dementia Care that allows us to maintain dignity and the highest quality of life possible is available to us and our loved ones"-- Judy Berry, Exec Director, DementiaCare Foundation.
