Validus Senior Living Sets New Standards in Personalized Care for Seniors 

Steven Benjamin’s elevator speech is short and sweet: “We take care of moms and dads.” It would be easy for the CEO of Validus Senior Living to tout his company’s standout properties, sophisticated technologies and remarkable amenities. But ultimately, Validus’ mission boils down to doing whatever it takes to deliver compassionate, personalized care and programming for seniors. “We understand that, at the end of the day, folks measure us based on how safe, cared for and happy their moms, dads and loved ones feel,” says Benjamin, a 23-year veteran of the senior living industry. “So, we don’t pay lip service to the idea of providing the highest quality customized care.

NYU Langone Hip Center

Hip Pain Threatens Quality of Life for Adults of All Ages
An increasing number of young adults find their lives sidetracked by debilitating hip pain. Many of these individuals are former youth athletes, whose active lifestyle is now hampered by discomfort in the joint and groin, limited range of motion, and symptoms like joint locking and catching. Trauma, developmental abnormalities and early stages of degenerative diseases like arthritis can also be the cause. “Left untreated, hip pain not only causes suffering in the present, it will eventually require hip replacement surgery as the protective cartilage in the load-bearing joint wears down over time. And since artificial hips typically last about 20 years, young patients may need a revision replacement surgery,” explains Roy I. Davidovitch, M.D., di- rector of the NYU Langone Hip Center, and a proponent of hip preservation techniques to help avoid hip replace- ment surgery. …Read More
