Silverado Story

In 1996, Loren Shook and Steve Winner co-founded Silverado, which instituted a new standard of care for people with memory-impairment. Both men are now considered leading Alzheimer’s futurists. They have provided distinguished service to numerous state and national senior health care associations and each has received many prestigious awards for outstanding contributions in care for the memory-impaired.

Loren Shook believed people with Alzheimer’s and other memory-impairing diseases were capable of greater engagement with the world and with their loves ones than traditional care facilities were producing. This was not idle thinking it was based on his experience, literally from childhood, working in psychiatric care hospitals. However, only after he heard Steve Winner advocating similar ideas at a national conference did Loren see a way of putting these theories to the test.

It wasn’t simple or without risk, because it required that Loren, Steve and their founding partner, Jim Smith, create a new kind of residential care community that would serve only those with memory-impairing diseases. Today, thousands of families are grateful these Alzheimer’s futurists dared to follow their dream.
