COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Lisa Cini, renowned expert on caring for and living with those suffering from

Alzheimer's and author of Hive: The Simple Guide to Multigenerational Living, launches new memory care solutions and practical ideas to keep family members at home, to help them continue to feel valuable and wanted.

"My relationship

with Alzheimer's became up-close-and-personal when my family decided to bring my 92-year-old grandmother with Alzheimer's into our multigenerational family home, rather than having her reside at a memory care facility," says, Cini. "I knew as a family we could find a way to keep her safe, loved and with us."

In her book, Lisa offers practical solutions that include elements of home design, best practices, and even technology that can make an Alzheimer's sufferer's and the family's life easier and less frustrating. In home design, Lisa uses the acronym LOVE to stand for light, optimize, visual cues and ease. Her suggestions for best practices include: not arguing, involving them in daily chores, making sure they get plenty of sunshine, and avoiding too much sleep during the day.

Tech aids available to make their lives (and caregivers' lives) less complicated, include:

  1. Dementia day and reminder clock
  2. Automatic pill dispenser
  3. One-button dementia radio
  4. A wander alarm security alert
  5. Stove safety FireAvert
  6. The Human Charger light therapy device to enhance energy levels and help get restful, sustained sleep.
  7. A companion pet with the unique ability to respond to hugging, petting and motion similar to any typical cat or dog. It easily mimics the movement and purring sound of a cat to bring comfort, companionship and loads of fun for your senior loved ones.

Lisa's book The Future is Here: Senior Living Re-imagined addresses both design and technology as they relate to senior living. Her dementia blog (BestLivingTech.com) teaches empathy and understanding to improve seniors' lives and offers a collection of some of the best products she has found from all over the world designed to make seniors' lives easier.

"Meet your loved ones with Alzheimer's where they are," adds Cini. "It's about acceptance and never forgetting how much they still have to offer if you're willing to listen and understand."
