Summer Interns

We welcomed six returning maintenance team interns back this Summer. They’ve tackled projects such as cleaning air conditioners in each apartment home and townhome at Heritage Landing, replaced each townhome shutter at Eagle Creek’s entire community, they’ve also helped with tearing down air conditioning units at The Wellington as well so far. The crew will continue working on air conditioner units at Greenfield today! New to the corporate office team is our intern Franki, she will be lending a hand to various sites throughout the Summer. She will work mainly in the marketing department as well. We enjoy introducing interns to the property management industry and we’re very happy to have such a great team this year!

Family Fun This Winter Over Spring Break!

Today we visited Explore Minnesota’s website to find inspiration for fun activities this winter. We know Spring Break is coming up for many of our families at our communities and we thought we may suggest a few activities for a fun Spring Break!

Below is a portion of an article entitled Make a Family Getaway This Winter featuring The National Eagle Center and Lark Toys in Wabasha, MN.

On a lark, take your kids to the amazing LARK Toys and Carousel, where you’ll find toys, ice cream, candy, and an exquisite hand-carved carousel all under one roof. Located in the tiny town of Kellogg in the southeast corner of the state, it is the nation’s largest independent toy store. The name, which stands for Lost Arts Revival by Kreofsky, reflects its owners’ passion for good old-fashioned wooden toys, but there’s also a huge selection of books, puppets, tin wind-up toys, and much more.

While you’re in the Mississippi River Valley, don’t miss the National Eagle Center, just up scenic Highway 61 from Kellogg. Starting in late November, many bald eagles migrate to the open water and plentiful fish supply in the Wabasha-Reads Landing area, and they’re easy to spot through the scopes on the observation deck. You can also see three live eagles-Harriet, Angel, and Columbia-up close inside the center, along with interesting displays about our national emblem.

Let us know, what is your favorite Spring Break adventure?

Ask Our Experts; Is There A Difference Between Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia?

“Is there a difference between
Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia?”

The answer to that question is “yes”.

Dementia is defined as the loss of mental ability in the areas of memory, reasoning, planning, and behavior severe enough to interfere with activities of daily living.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, accounting for an estimated 50-80% of dementia cases. Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging; however the disease affects 47.5% of all adults over the age of eighty-five. Some other causes of dementia include stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and infections of the brain.

Currently there is not a single test that can confirm a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.  A diagnosis is made by a physician or neurologist based on a series of assessments that may include a mental status exam, physical and neurological exams and in some cases brain imaging. The onset of Alzheimer’s disease is gradual and there is currently no cure; however there are medications which have been shown to slow the progression of the disease, thereby improving the quality of life for those affected.

Throughout the United States persons with dementia are receiving care from an estimated 14.9 million family caregivers.  The physical and emotional toll associated with providing care to someone with dementia can be overwhelming, but there are resources to help. The Minnesota-North Dakota chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association provides education, support and advocacy to those persons affected by dementia. Caregivers can contact the association to obtain a list of support groups and educational events happening in their area by calling (800) 272-3900 or visiting their website at http://www.alz.org/mnnd/
