Silverado’s core vision is to give quality of life to people with memory-impairing diseases, their families and associates. The award recognized Silverado’s internationally known, evidence-based Nexus ® program. This non drug approach has been shown to improve quality of life, cognition and function for many persons in the earlier stages of living with dementia. In fact, research has shown that participants showed a 60 percent improvement in cognition when compared to those without such treatment.

“Nexus ® is a strength-based, brain-health program that is unique to our industry,” said President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Loren Shook. “Our culture is founded on the principle of ‘love is greater than fear’ and one of the eight tenants of that culture is innovation. Nexus ® is driven in that spirit by teams of skilled and compassionate caregivers with a desire to change the way the world cares for people with cognitive decline. Unlike other programs, the main side effect of our Nexus ® program is fun.”

The program was founded on mounting research that there may be ways to slow the progression and change the pathologies of many common dementias, giving individuals an increased quality of life and the possibility of more precious, fulfilling moments with family and loved ones. Each Silverado community combines world-class clinical care – supported by around-the-clock licensed nurses, a one-to-one staff to resident ratio, and a designated physician medical director, in a welcoming and engaging social model environment.
