Orlando, FL – April 2011 – As judges reviewed the 2011 Best of the Best Awards entries, several programs stood out as great innovations in the early stages of development or without enough success measurements to fully assess at this point. We’re eager to see the results as these organizations continue to implement their great ideas.

Sonata Senior Living, headquartered in Orlando, Florida, is developing a new memory care community with resident-directed rather than program-centered scheduling in mind. At Serenades by Sonata, multisensory cues such as touch, sound, and smell will be used throughout to provide residents with reminders of the purpose of particular spaces. For example, amber lighting in bathrooms will help cue residents who get up at night to use the bathroom. Residents will have unimpeded access to secure outdoor areas, and a wireless e-call system and door and window contacts will alert staff of resident emergencies.
