Now is the time to honor their sacrifices and  record their stories.” Marvin Maxwell Melbourne III.One day recently on a Eden Registry Networking call we began to discuss ageism and its effects on society and our youth. Heather Hutchins from Mission Health Services was on the call and she told us the story of an Elder that was a true advocate and made a huge impression on the care partner employees and Elders at Hillside Rehabilitation Center in salt lake City, Utah.  He made such am impression that Mission honors his memory by continuing his legacy and naming him as their their mascot.  Here is their story: Marvin was a real gentlemen that resided at Hillside. At first Marvin did not like living at Hillside and he exhibited certain ‘behaviors’ as it were. Over time he began to become a part of the community and played a role at Hillside looking out for others that did not have a voice for themselves. Marvin passed away over a year ago but lives on through his blog and his work as the Mission mascot.Marvin was originally created as part of our Youth Ageism Awareness Education Program. This program educates the youth of the community about the negative effects of ageism. “Ageism allows the younger generations to see older people as different than themselves; over time, they cease to identify with their elders as human beings.”Wendy Taorina, 2012-9-12. Marvin also wants to make sure that the younger generations understand ageism when caring for the aged population. Senior advocates would argue that ageism contributes to negative stigmas against nursing homes. As part of the ageism awareness program, Mission is starting a new program called: “Take my Hand and Tell me Your Story.” Another tool to help bridge the gap between the elders and the youth and dispel the negative aspects of ageism.Marvin’s blog is a journal he writes to his wife Millie. He talks about his experiences living in a culture change home, his struggles living with his wife’s Alzheimer’s, ageism, care for the caregiver, and his story, his history. Marvin believes the first step in bringing awareness is through the stories of the Elders. He is telling his story, his wife’s story, and he puts a little historical background into it.Mission is dedicated to telling our story. Mission is dedicated to being the hero’s and advocates for our aging population. Each and every day, we do what is right for our Elders and in return they care for us. We honor them as human beings, as the carriers of great wisdom.You can read Marvin’s blog here: www.missionhealthservices.org/marvin/ Marvin also posts on Facebook: history, care for the caregiver, caring for Elders at home, Ageism awareness, and awareness of the world or issues that may affect our Elders.  Related PostsBest Practices in Home Care ShowcaseOne of the things that keeps me working in the aging services field is the camaraderie of my colleagues.  They demonstrate a tremendous commitment to and appreciation for Elders and their care partners, an awareness of the Elders’ stories as sacred treasures to be held by us with care, and…Denver’s Saint Paul Heath Center Joins the Eden RegistryThe Eden Alternative is proud to announce that Saint Paul Heath Center in Denver has joined the ranks of The Eden Alternative® Registry, marking its commitment to improving the quality of care and quality of life for its residents and staff.

Today, new technologies make it easier for investors to quickly ascertain what properties are actually worth; and what borrowers are able (or likely) to do to cure default. Although inventory amount has tapered from historically high levels, the industry continues to evolve, and we are finding that online marketplaces continue to gain share based on improved outcomes. This growth is a direct result of the out-of-the-box approach that we’ve witnessed from industry leaders with their implementation of new ways of thinking and innovative solutions to address the challenges presented to them. This new approach to the business, paired with the ability to provide a robust online platform has resulted in the vibrant, healthy marketplace that we see today.DS News: I understand Auction.com is rebranding in conjunction with its 10th anniversary. Tell us about that.Auction.com, as a brand, is celebrating its 10th anniversary. We evolved from Real Estate Disposition Company in 2007 after finding the value and efficiency of disposition in the digital environment. Timed to coincide with our anniversary, we have unveiled a new logo, tagline, and updated design aesthetic that reaffirms our commitment to providing buyers and sellers with optimal disposition strategies for faster executions. As we’ve grown from an online auction site to the only platform uniquely able and proven to successfully bring any and all assets to auction no matter the stage in the disposition lifecycle, we look forward to going “Beyond The Bid” in providing proven disposition solutions that better prepare buyers for success.DS News: What have you learned over the course of the past decade that helps you continue to steer Auction.com forward? I remind myself of the importance of being relentless in the pursuit of developing optimal solutions, innovative in developing clear strategy, and forward thinking in exploring new opportunities in the marketplace.Each of these qualities validates the importance of having an experienced and committed team in place—one that keeps our buyers’ and sellers’ needs top-of-mind in effectively presenting the most optimal disposition strategies in the market. The creativity fostered by our team positions Auction.com to best serve our sellers through a faster, more cost-effective method of disposing of their assets, and our buyers by providing the level of education and supporting resources needed to empower them to bid in confidence.DS News: What is next for the industry? Our industry is moving at a rapid pace and frankly, for us, it’s hard not to be optimistic about the future. The economy continues to improve, consumer confidence remains high, and as the established market leader in distressed asset disposition, Auction.com is well capitalized with access to the strategic and financial resources we need to drive the continued innovation of our technology and future expansion of our global footprint. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Technology Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post Home / Daily Dose / The Housing Industry: Then and Now The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Brianna Gilpin The Housing Industry: Then and Now September 15, 2017 1,686 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Fannie Mae’s Economic Update Next: The Week Ahead: The Five Star Conference and Expo Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribelast_img
