Committed to being an industry leader not only in Alzheimer’s assisted living care, but also in research towards better treatment and an eventual cure for Alzheimer’s disease, Senior Living Residences (SLR) and its Compass Memory Support Assisted Living communities donated $7500 to their academic affiliate, the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center (BUADC).
The Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center is one of thirty centers funded by the National Institute on Aging to make research advances that will improve the care and treatment for people with Alzheimer’s disease, as well as seek ways to prevent the disease process, and to find a cure.
Senior Living Residences is a local Boston-based company with a reputation as a leader in providing Alzheimer’s care to Massachusetts seniors in its Compass Memory Support Neighborhoods®. SLR’s forward-looking approach to developing treatment programs for Alzheimer’s care led them to a formal affiliation with the BU ADC. This unique affiliation brings state-of-the-art treatments for the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and related cognitive impairments from the clinical research setting to SLR’s Compass Memory Support Neighborhoods®. The money given to the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center was raised at SLR’s six Compass Memory Support communities by associates, family members and professional referral sources.
Noting the importance of being part of Alzheimer’s disease research, Robert Larkin, president of Senior Living Residences said, “Our commitment to innovative treatment and care for people with Alzheimer’s disease extends beyond our own assisted living communities. We are continuously looking for ways to promote research towards better treatment and ultimately a cure for this disease. Our contribution to the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center is part of that important work. The families that we work with have told us that being a part of finding a cure has empowered them and given them a positive way to combat the sense of loss felt in loving someone with Alzheimer’s.”
