Our employees stepped into the world of dementia and Alzheimer’s. On December 8, 2022, our senior living community in Portland, Oregon hosted Dementia Live training for employees and neighboring Arete Living-managed senior living communities.

Dementia Live by AGEucate Training Institute is high-impact simulation immersing employees into the world of dementia. It creates a deep understanding of what it’s like to live with cognitive impairment and sensory change. The tool affects hearing, vision, and even how you feel.

This experience enhances the care we’re able to provide our residents.

Thank you to our Avamere at Bethany team for hosting this event. Special shoutout to Cristal Ruvalcaba (Director of Sales and Outreach), Livia Thompson (Sr. Life Enrichment Director), and Margaret Sugura (Life Enrichment Director) for your excellent work on this important training and to Afra Mayfield, Regional Director of Operations, for championing and leading the Dementia Live training implementation.

Dementia Live training will continue regularly at Arete Living-managed senior living communities that offer memory care, including Avamere at Bethany.
