Caring Senior Service offers Ageless Grace training to staff, caregivers
SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Nov. 1, 2023 – In an effort to help its clients improve healthy brain function, Caring Senior Service, a leading provider of non-medical in-home services, has partnered with Ageless Grace® to certify local instructors in the innovative brain fitness program.
“It is the goal of every Caring Senior Service location to provide the at-home care that seniors need so they can remain happy and healthy at home,” said Caring Senior Service founder and CEO Jeff Salter. “People want the freedom to live active lives, and this program keeps the adults we care for moving and thinking. Offering the Ageless Grace program is part of our commitment to provide Great Care® to our clients.”
Ageless Grace was founded in 2011 by Denise Medved, a family caregiver who lost her mother to Alzheimer’s disease. Medved spent years researching the relationship between physical movement and cognitive function. Through testing and refinement, she developed the Ageless Grace program. Now, more than 3,400 educators have been certified to teach the program worldwide.
One of those educators is Caring Senior Service of Waco’s co-owner Rebecca Rauch. Rauch is a board-certified women’s health specialist in physical therapy. She and her husband, Dustin, who is also a physical therapist, opened their location after caring for Dustin Rauch’s aging mother who had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Rebecca Rauch recently completed the Ageless Grace training program and is now certified to teach it.
“Because of our background in physical therapy, we wanted to offer the seniors in the Waco area an exercise program that focuses on the healthy longevity of the body and the brain,” she said. “The Ageless Grace program supports clinical evidence that physical movement improves cognitive ability. It’s a revolutionary program that helps open a body’s neurons through physical movement and mental stimulation.”
Rauch said the Ageless Grace program is also perfect designed for older adults and those with physical limitations since all the exercises are performed sitting down.
Caring Senior Service works through the Ageless Grace program to offer training sessions to its location owners and their employees. Sessions are taught via Zoom or in person so that anyone from Caring Senior Service’s more than 50 locations nationwide can take advantage of the training program.
