Opening event for Silverado Fort Worth features community tours, live music, food and refreshments

Silverado Fort Worth celebrated our grand opening on July 17 with a ribbon-cutting moment that included residents and their families. Our new community, which broke ground in December 2012, already serves more than 20 people with memory impairments in our first weeks of operation and will serve as many as 90 residents when at capacity.

"With more than 17 years of experience in memory care, it’s a privilege for us to provide life-enriching care to the residents of Silverado Fort Worth,” shares Silverado President, Chairman and CEO Loren Shook. "With every grand opening, we get the opportunity to positively impact more lives and in doing so, give peace of mind to loved ones’ families.”

The peace of mind that Silverado provides to families often comes after the emotional impact of caring for a loved one with dementia. That was the case for the daughter of 98-year-old Silverado resident Margaret Palmer.

“It was incredibly stressful to be a 24-hour caregiver for my mom after she was diagnosed with late onset, moderate Alzheimer’s, and I often felt so overwhelmed,” shares Palmer’s daughter Charlotte. “When I first walked into Silverado, I instantly felt peace in knowing that my role could change from primary caregiver to primary advocate for my mother."
