Thrive Memory Care at East Cobb

“This community will be a drastic departure from what most people think of when senior living comes to mind, and will set a new standard for senior living,” – Jeramy Ragsdale, CEO of Thrive Senior Living

Atlanta-based Thrive Senior Living announced this week it is creating a unique, highly specialized new community: Thrive Memory Care at East Cobb, in Marietta GA. The strategic location near main thoroughfares extends Thrive at East Cobb’s ability to serve a large geographic area in this dense, high-end residential section of Marietta.

By adapting and completely reengineering a former Hospice facility, Thrive will provide exclusive care to seniors living with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias (ADRD).

With 25 private suites, Thrive Memory Care at East Cobb is a ‘boutique’ community, where residents will enjoy focused personal care. This innovation breaks with the industry’s pattern of large stand-alone Memory Care facilities and care for the memory impaired as an inevitable ancillary service of a larger senior living community.

The community will replicate a sophisticated, yet warm home-like atmosphere with high-end finishes designed for resident comfort. The intimate experience will feature living and dining areas, an outdoor deck overlooking a peaceful pond, and a sunroom. Quietly integrated with this home-like atmosphere is a state-of-the-art care system, designed by Thrive to provide world-class care and engagement to its residents.

Thrive will coordinate resident care information in its innovative digital environment, which seamlessly integrates communication, Electronic Health Records, Medication Administration, and Individual Care Plans. Care Teams will quickly and easily have access to residents’ full health picture, allowing a more informed and holistic approach to care. Other technology, including a wireless care alert system, will simplify and improve daily life for residents and bring peace of mind to their families.

Thrive at East Cobb will serve the person living with memory impairment through engagement in activities and cognitive therapy. The community will feature a senior-friendly technology system that Care Teams can use to attempt to bridge across memory conditions into enjoyable past activities and experiences.

“This community will be a drastic departure from what most people think of when senior living comes to mind, and will set a new standard for senior living,” – Jeramy Ragsdale, CEO of Thrive Senior Living

Founded with a single community in 2009, Thrive has rapidly become known as one of the most innovative, disruptive, and fastest growing companies in the senior living industry. Thrive has developed and operated over 25 senior living communities in 8 states valued at over half a billion dollars, and currently employees more than 700 amazing team members.

Sharon Kleyne Honors Sedgwick & New Water Research

Sharon Kleyne, America’s leading water researcher, advocate and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica, reminded listeners that December 29th marks the birthday of William Thompson Sedgwick, whose research, teaching and guidance, especially in water use and water safety, had more to do with shaping public health in the U.S. than anyone else. “Sedgwick was the essence of what it means to be a pioneer, educator and scientist,” said Kleyne, who practices all of these rolls in her own life and work. “As we urgently lobby world leaders to make water their first infrastructure priority,” said Kleyne, “it’s useful to remember an earlier time when priorities, especially around water, made a lot more sense than they do today.”

William T. Sedgwick was born December 29th, 1855 and died on January 25th, 1921 (the 39th birthday of the great novelist and Feminist, Virginia Woolf). After finishing his college education at the Sheffield Scientific School at Yale University in 1877 and receiving his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University in 1881, Sedgwick taught at MIT from 1883 until his death, eventually becoming the head of the Department of Biology and Public Health. From 1897, Sedgwick served as curator of the Lowell Institute. Sedgwick also served (1899-1901) as the first president of the society of American Bacteriologists (now the American Society for Microbiology). “This record of impeccable service would be enough,” Kleyne said, “to pause and take note once again of this man and his achievements, but there is something even more pertinent to this moment. I’m thinking,” Sharon Kleyne continued, “about Sedgwick’s influence on two men he mentored, George Warren Fuller and George C, Whipple.” Both men would go on to important careers in Water and wastewater technology, setting standards that would positively influence water research and water technology for many decades. “We need scientists and researchers like these three men to commit to extensive water research and new technology today,” Kleyne said, “especially if we’re going to turn around the global health and water disasters that are bearing down on us like a tsunami.”

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, has earned an international reputation as the global expert on dehydration of the eyes and skin due to excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor. “From the moment we leave our mother’s water-womb and are born,” Kleyne said, “we begin a process of evaporation that continues until death. In order to sustain excellent health,” she went on, “one must supplement eyes and skin on a daily basis to replenish the evaporating water vapor. Of course, the purer the water is, the better it will be for the person supplementing skin and eyes with it.” Kleyne also urges inspired efforts to clean up water for human use, thus greatly reducing incidents of typhoid fever, malaria and other illnesses related to polluted water.

“I try to educate people around the world every day,” said Sharon Kleyne, “about the current global water crisis and the health dangers associated with dehydration due to excess evaporation of the earth’s water vapor. In doing so,” Kleyne continued, “we gradually learn what we need to know to create a new, healthy Water Life Science® lifestyle.” Kleyne encouraged listeners and other interested parties to visit for more information about the latest water technology and new water lifestyle.

“Today’s researchers and scientists, like William T. Sedgwick, George C. Whipple and George Warren Fuller in their time, will determine the difference between life and death,” said Sharon Kleyne. “They will discover new water technology that will lead to cures for diseases, and for that we can be grateful for the example of those who came before us.”
