“Being proactive” is the best way to approach any challenge in life. With the COVID-19 pandemic, proactive steps will save lives. Since doctors don’t yet have a cure, proactive preventive steps are the best available strategy.
Information regarding the COVID-19, or the novel coronavirus, is everywhere, and it can be easy to feel overwhelmed, anxious, or confused. However, one thing is certain: The risk of developing severe and dangerous complications due to the virus increases with age. This means that senior care and senior living professionals have been paying especially close attention to the science and research surrounding COVID-19.
Recently, The Arbor Company gathered to recognize and honor the leaders of our communities from the 11 states we serve. Our Arbor Leadership Conference is always the perfect time to connect with other Arbor Company teams, learn best practices within the senior care industry, and leave feeling inspired.
The Arbor Company knows what it takes to give retired seniors the best care and the most memorable experiences: It takes a dedicated team of professionals who are passionate about their roles. However, even the most stable community team can face hard seasons and difficult changes.
We are proud to announce that we’re the recipient of the Pinnacle Quality Insight 2019 Customer Experience AwardTM. Our communities proudly displays a continued dedication to best-in-class senior healthcare services.
You would think that having a full-time job, plus a part-time job, would keep the Rev. Marquis Townes busy enough. But somehow, with the help of his family, he's found a way to also make a difference in the lives of children with special needs. And in a small way, the residents and staff of Eden Terrace in Spartanburg, S.C., are helping him do that this holiday season.
Steering clear of senior focused scams is a good practice for anyone over the age of 65. Thanks to an aging population that is a little less internet savvy and a lot more polite, the FBI notes that seniors also are more likely to not report the scam until it is much too late. In fact, crooks rely on the fact that seniors are often poor witnesses, reporting the scam much too late and without too many details that can point the police in the direction of the bad guys.
If you have ever received a phone call or email that just didn’t seem right, you may have just missed a scam. Unfortunately, seniors often fall victim to cunning crooks who set their sights on a more polite and unsuspecting generation. The FBI notes that con artists often choose to go after aging adults because seniors make poor witnesses and have a large nest egg with excellent credit; these qualities make it too hard for a dishonest crook to resist.
