Alamo Residence Homes Joins Memento Care Home Network
Alamo Residence Homes Joins Memento Residential Care Home Network Innovative Board and Care Senior Assisted Living Comes to Alamo Alamo, Calif. (October 10, 2013) - Memento Care, the Bay Area's only care home network supporting residential assisted living homes for seniors, has partnered with Alamo Residence Homes, a board and care home in Alamo, to offer innovative care designed by a neurologist.
As a member of the Memento Care Home Network, Alamo Residential Homes will now offer amenities and services usually only available at large elder care communities. Alamo Residence Homes will continue to provide the personal attention small "Board and Care" assisted living homes are known for, but with the added benefits of Memento Care's resources. Nancy Oh, Owner and Administrator of Alamo Residence Homes, and her close-knit staff provide highly personalized, loving care, including hospice and dementia care, to the elderly residents living in this comfortable home on Stone Valley Road. The Memento partnership will enable them to offer more support services, such as individually catered meals, activities and staff training designed by Memento's CEO and neurologist, Michael Nelson.
"As a neurologist specializing in elder care, I've visited residents at Alamo Residence Homes, and I've always been impressed," said Dr. Nelson. "Nancy Oh and her staff are compassionate, loving, highly professional caregivers. There's an intimacy to the place, a special rapport between the staff and the residents. I'm very pleased to have Alamo Residence Homes as part of the Memento Care Home Network."
"I'm very excited to join Memento Care Home Network," said Ms. Oh. "We'll be able to offer our residents additional services, without sacrificing the atmosphere and personal attention a small residential care home provides. For example, Memento's technology will allow us to communicate more easily with our residents' family members, and handicapped accessible vehicles will provide greater convenience and comfort to the seniors in our care. I'm especially excited to have my staff participate in the specialized training Dr. Nelson has developed, as he has always been so gracious to our residents."
"Having Alamo Residence Homes as part of the Memento Care Home Network is valuable to us in so many ways," said Memento President, Scott Jules. Nancy Oh is very highly regarded elder care provider, and has operated her Residential Care Home in Alamo since 1989. The Alamo location is in the heart of Contra Costa County and the San Ramon Valley, allowing Memento to offer our innovative residential care home model to families and their loved ones in the area. Alamo Care Homes is already a best-in-class Residential Care facility, exactly the type of partner we want to have in the Memento Network."
