Collaboration Between LCB Senior Living and CaringKind to Advance Care for Residents Living with Dementia and Their Families
FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn., February 16, 2023 – LCB Senior Living, a leading senior housing provider with more than 30 communities across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, announced today it has formed a partnership with CaringKind, an organization that promotes comprehensive and compassionate care for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. The partnership will include LCB Senior Living’s three communities in Fairfield County: The Residence at Summer Street in Stamford, The Residence at Selleck’s Woods in Darien, and The Residence at Westport.
“This new collaboration between LCB Senior Living and CaringKind will continue to push the standards of resident care forward” said LCB Senior Living CEO Michael Stoller. “LCB Senior Living has an incredibly dedicated and talented resident care staff, and this partnership will only strengthen the level of service that we provide to our residents.”
Under the partnership, CaringKind dementia specialists will provide training and support for LCB Senior Living staff on the best practices for caring for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. These specialists will also hold support groups for family members of LCB Senior Living residents, as well as help solve other dementia-related challenges. The partnership will supplement LCB Senior Living’s renowned Reflections Memory Care program, which supports residents through enriching experiences and is based on a philosophy of empathy, expression, and mindfulness.
“Caring for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia often comes with its own unique set of challenges,” said Amber Evans, LCB Senior Living’s Director of Memory Care and Resident Engagement Services. “The purpose of this partnership with CaringKind is to provide our Reflections Directors with the necessary resources and support that allow them to offer the best possible care for our residents.”
