Despite the coronavirus pandemic, residents of the Villas high-end adult community in Manalapan, N.J., safely continue to benefit from cognitive and general health therapies
Staten Island, N.Y. – The Villas, a luxurious Manalapan, N.J., apartment community for seniors, has been fixed upon wellness and prevention since opening its doors in October, continuing to provide a healthy setting for its residents as they shelter in place during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
“These are extremely difficult times. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the virus,” said Steve Baker, president of the Villas. “Our top priority is safeguarding the health and well-being of our residents and staff members, and supporting the work being done to curtail the spread of COVID-19 in our surrounding community.”
An attractive residential option for active adults and retirees living in Staten Island, N.Y., or in other nearby locations, the Villas is an upscale, world-class-resort-inspired apartment community offering a range of amenities and services sensitive to the lifestyle, health and daily needs of seniors. The complex caters to independent-living, assisted-living, skilled-nursing and memory-care needs on specialized floors.
ADVANCES IN COGNITIVE HEALTH
Committed to the overall health of its residents, the Villas is helping to re-invent the protocols for treating people with symptoms of cognitive decline. Working proactively under the medical direction of Hackensack Meridian Health, the Villas offers its residents a leading-edge program onsite – designed to reverse, or possibly prevent, a cognitive downturn.
“It’s like staying at a five-star resort while rehabilitating brain function through a state-of-the art program,” said Steve Baker, president of the Villas.
The ReviteWellness™ program at the Villas, for example, is a dynamic and innovative, personalized health program designed to prevent, neutralize or reverse chronic diseases and conditions. Among other initiatives, the program incorporates the Dale Bredesen, M.D., Reversal of Cognitive Decline (ReCODE)protocol for reversing early stage Alzheimer’s.
In his New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller “The End of Alzheimer’s” (Penguin Random House; August 2017), Dr. Bredesen outlines 36 metabolic factors, such as micronutrients, hormone levels and sleep, that can trigger “downsizing” in the brain. The protocol explains how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications. The Villas medical team embraces these concepts and can provide a ReCODE Report, an individualized assessment of cognitive health based on lab results analyzed by a software program created by Dr. Bredesen and his team.
Utilizing a personalized formula of cognitive-enhancing approaches, the Villas provides an array of onsite therapeutic support geared toward supporting cognitive and general health, such as: An integrative physician who meets often with the participant and the Villas professional staff; supplements and medications administered by certified medication professionals; sleep monitoring and assessment; a personalized diet designed by a registered dietician and nutrition expert; one-on-one personal coaching; hydromassage for relaxation and de-stressing; virtual reality-enhanced exercise; a Dynavision™device designed to improve sensory motor skills, and Brain HQ, a brain-training program, to name just a few.
