Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
As Silverado prepares to open its 43,000 sq. ft. memory care community, the inaugural leadership is taking shape under the leadership of Administrator Rose Vera. Vera will oversee operations at the 90-bed memory care community, with a team of up to 100 associates once fully staffed. As a former nurse, medical consultant and senior living operator, Vera brings with her a broad expertise in resident-centered care. She holds an undergraduate degree in Healthcare Administration and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Baylor University.
As part of their unique approach to memory care, the new Silverado community will offer around-the-clock clinical care to address all levels of need. To provide oversight and guidance for these care services, Medical Director Allen Sonstein, M.D., will also join the local leadership team. Doctor Sonstein is affiliated with the South Austin Hospital and is a Clinical Assistant Professor at The University of Texas. He is a member of the American Geriatric Society and the Texas Medical Association, as well as Founder and President of the Family Practice Society at Jefferson Medical College. Doctor Sonstein is also certified in Geriatric Medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to support Austin families affected by memory loss,” explains Michelle Egerer, Silverado’s senior vice president of community operations. “Under Rose’s leadership, we look forward to enriching the lives of Silverado residents and their families alike.”
