CEO Loren Shook Shares Philosophy

As the Baby Boomer generation continues to age, healthcare faces increasing challenges and opportunities. With the growing importance of healthcare and senior care education, Silverado President, CEO and Chairman of the Board Loren Shook is committed to being an Alzheimer’s and dementia resource partner to many universities and research organizations. The need for innovative, specialized dementia care is growing in demand. In fact, more than five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, and that number is expected only to increase.

Loren’s passion and vision for changing how the world views those with dementia has truly improved the quality of life for the residents and families Silverado serves. Loren shares this philosophy and his vision in a special chapter of “Models and Pathways for Person-Centered Elder Care”.

In a review, Health Professions Press states that the book provides “insight into implementing care practices that focus on the person, through the profiles of pioneering model communities that have successfully brought culture change into their organizations.” It goes on to share that the book helps readers “discover proven approaches to transforming attitudes, practices, physical spaces, and organizational structures to accommodate the collaborative processes essential to personalized care.”
