Amy Klosterman has been named the marketing director for Charter Senior Living of Oak Openings, the new assisted living and memory care facility under construction at 6805 Sylvania Ave.
at McCord Road.
Following a November groundbreaking, construction, under the direction of The Douglas Company, nears completion. According to Klosterman, there will be 24 assisted living suites and 36 memory care suites in the one-story facility.
“Based on our feedback from the region, we knew that senior services, especially memory care services in the Sylvania community, were significant. Therefore we developed the new senior living resource with a large balance of memory care services and programming to answer that need,” said Keven Bennema, CEO of Charter Senior Living.
In addition, Charter will be bringing in premier memory care programming to the Sylvania community. Charter’s memory care programming includes a one-of-a-kind approach called Flourishs, which addresses the unique needs of residents living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias while providing them with helpful support, loving care and personalized programming that honors who they are and where they may be in their journeys.
“Our goal for our residents is what inspired the name of our Memory Care Program – Flourishsm. Flourish Memory Care is rooted in the belief and supported by leading-edge research that people living with Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss can grow and flourish regardless of the degree of memory loss,” said Jayne Sallerson, chief operating officer of Charter.
The foundation of Flourishsm consists of eight diverse, integrated support areas to create a robust program to allow residents to live their life with purpose and meaning which takes the best aspects of several notable systems used in other communities across the world.
In addition, to its memory care programming, Charter will be amenity-rich with the latest technology and services for its residents, including tools to facilitate communication between residents and caregivers, residential-grade WiFi throughout the entire community and customization of technology for different levels of care needs.
“We are creating the next generation of senior living communities by raising the bar on services, programming, design and technology right here in Sylvania,” added Bennema.
