One in nine older adults has dementia and it is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. While there is currently no cure, there is growing evidence that nutrition can play a role in brain health and cognitive disease progression. AJAS business partner Unidine is leading the foodservice industry in addressing this critical issue and its impact at senior living facilities.

Carol Silver Elliott  appointed by Gov. Chris Christie to the New Jersey Task Force on Abuse of Persons
Who Are Elderly or Disabled
The Jewish Home Family
(Rockleigh, NJ)
Jewish Home Family President and CEO Carol Silver Elliott has been appointed by Gov. Chris Christie to the New Jersey Task Force on Abuse of Persons Who Are Elderly or Disabled. Jewish Home Family is the organizational parent of the Jewish Home at Rockleigh, Jewish Home Assisted Living, Jewish Home Foundation, Jewish Home and Rehabilitation Center and the Jewish Home at Home. The organization opened New Jersey's first elder abuse shelter in 2015 under Silver Elliott's leadership. SeniorHaven for Elder Abuse Prevention, in addition to offering 90 to 120 days of shelter to victims of elder abuse, has convened professionals from various sectors to educate on the signs of abuse and best practices to help victims seek shelter.

SeniorHaven is one of 14 shelters nationwide and is part of the SPRiNG Alliance, a network of regional elder abuse shelters with close working relationships.

"Elder abuse is an under-recognized and under-reported problem in our society, and it affects millions every year," Silver Elliott said. "To be able to help the most vulnerable, to work to ensure that every individual has the ability to live a life that is safe and dignified, is a vital effort. It is truly wonderful that the state of New Jersey is taking this important leadership step, and I am honored to be a part of it."
