Paul Casale, Jr., executive director of Allerton House at Central Park in Weymouth is featured here introducing Sarah Hoit of Connected Living to the gathering of residents.

Each year during National Assisted Living Week, the Welch Group celebrates residents with week-long festivities in four Allerton House Assisted Living Communities along the South Shore. One of the highlights of the week is the Assisted Living Luncheon, held at Indian Pond Country Club in Kingston.

Paul Casale, Jr. executive director of Allerton House at Central Park in Weymouth, and emcee for the annual celebration, said staying at the forefront of new technological advances is part of the Allerton House mission.

By way of introducing the Luncheon’s guest speaker Sarah Hoit, he said she embodied the theme, “Keeping Connected.” Hoit is the CEO and co-founder of Connected Living, an award-winning program that helps residents get online using a secure, easy-to-use cloud-based social network, coupled with customized training and support that teaches seniors how to use technology, and also provides ongoing support that helps them to stay connected for the long-term. Hoit’s program is in use in all Allerton Houses, and soon the company will roll out a new App for families and residents.

The family-owned Welch Group offers assisted living communities along the South Shore, in Duxbury, Hingham, Marshfield, and Weymouth. The company includes two independent living communities, the only continuing care retirement community from Boston to Cape Cod offering garden homes and two memory care assisted living communities.

Peter Ham, licensed mental health counselor is featured with Colleen Ferguson, executive director of Village at Proprietors Green.

More than 50 people gathered recently at Village at Proprietors Green in Marshfield, a continuing care retirement community, to participate in a presentation on Alzheimer’s disease by Peter Ham, licensed mental health counselor and former vice-president for programs and services at the Massachusetts/New Hampshire chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. Village at Proprietors Green features three distinct neighborhoods, independent living, traditional assisted living and memory care.

Mr. Ham’s presentation, “Understanding loved ones with dementia: Coping and learning how to help,” drew family members and adult children of individuals dealing with a memory disorder. He talked about how best to understand and interact with someone with dementia, and how loved ones can gain acceptance as they learn how to help a family member or friend through the diagnosis.

The Alzheimer’s Association estimates that more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease. On the Association’s website, 10 early signs of the memory disorder are identified. A few include: memory loss involving recently learned information; difficulty developing and following plans that include working with numbers; and having a hard time finishing common and familiar day-to-day tasks. For the complete list visit the Alzheimer’s Association online at: http://www.alz.org/alzheimers_disease_10_signs_of_alzheimers.asp

The Memory Care Program at Allerton House at Proprietors Green seeks to re-envision daily living for residents and their families – transforming anxiety into an opportunity for therapeutic activities and a vibrant, engaging lifestyle. The program offers the comforts of home and specialized care within a secure, supportive neighborhood. The program features 24-hour supervision, a personalized service plan, medication management, and hydration program – all by an expertly trained staff. Additionally, the neighborhood offers bright, open common spaces and a large enclosed outdoor patio, with umbrella tables and ample seating.  Delicious, well balanced meals and snacks are an essential part of the program.
