The U.S. population is growing older, the Baby Boomer generation is aging at a increased rate, and the landscape of senior care is changing. This inevitable truth is forcing the entire senior living industry to begin thinking differently about tomorrow's seniors. At Silversphere, we recognize that we all have an important role to play in the changing landscape of senior care. We have an opportunity to reinvent, innovate, and make better ways of caring for seniors and communicating with famili es. Tomorrow's seniors have a longer life expectancy, a stronger desire to age-in-place, and a greater knowledge and reliance on technology. This aging and changing landscape is not our responsbility to manage, it is our opportunity to develop.
 

Be sure to take a look at the  infographic  below for a visual picture of just how much aging and changing is ahead.

National Healthcare Decisions Day

Only 29% of Americans have a living will or their end-of-life preferences in place. As shocking as that number is, even the most conscientious planners tend to postpone the potentially awkward conversations and difficult decisions that can precede writing a living will. Hopefully, National Healthcare Decisions Day on April 16th will help change all that. The goal of NHDD is to “inspire, educate and empower the public & providers about the importance of advance care planning.”

Nearly fifty percent of breast cancer cases in the U.S. occur in women who are 65 years of age or older. Senior women are screened much in the same way as younger women; however, treatment is dependent on the overall nature of the senior's health as well as if other serious health conditions are present. The goal of treatment, of course, is to remove the cancer and enhance each woman's quality of life.

Retirement is both a good and a bad time in life for many older adults. After a lifetime of participating in the workforce, providing for a family, and supporting themselves, it's time to take a well-earned break. Retirement is anticipated to be a relaxing period in life spent with grandchildren, friends, and family members. For many though, financial troubles cause unnecessary stress.

Your residents. They're why I get up in the morning.

As a technical support manager and representative for Tel-Tron, it's easy for me to feel down some days. After all, the only clients I talk to regularly are the people that have problems, and are frustrated. When was the last time you called a product manufacturer's technical support line to tell them how great their product worked? See, I don't get to talk to the 97% of our customers who didn't call technical support in a given day.
