A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, dementia or memory loss opens up a world that can be challenging and uncertain for caregivers and loved ones. Often, the amount of information available is overwhelming and specific needs can go unanswered. To help fill that void, Sunrise is proud to announce a new feature of our blog – “Ask Rita.”
“Ask Rita” will allow individuals, family members and friends to ask their specific questions to a memory care expert and receive a thoughtful response from Rita Altman, Vice President, Memory Care and Programming for Sunrise. One of seven Validation Masters worldwide, Rita has more than 30 years of nursing experience across all senior care settings. Besides being a frequent speaker on the subject, Rita has also authored many published articles on memory care and is a regular contributor to the Huffington Post.
If you have a specific question you’d like to ask Rita please hit the “comments” link at the bottom of this article. Once you type in your comment and post it we will feature your question in a subsequent blog article in a Q & A style, with Rita herself personally answering your questions about memory loss. She will do her best to answer as many questions as possible, focusing on the most frequent themes we receive.
We encourage you to share your questions with Rita today and check back regularly on our blog for advice and tips to benefit all caregivers.
