— Charles Loschiavo

TUCSON, AZ, USA, June 30, 2019 / — Desert Gardens Assisted Living is pleased to announce the opening of its brand new luxury home in the Foothills, offering a warm and inviting environment amidst spectacular mountain views. A ten-bed facility, the home is on a mission to enrich the lives of residents and their families and provide the best possible care in Tucson.

According to founder Charles Loschiavo, Desert Gardens is far superior to the average assisted living home because of the level of support it provides.

“Our caregivers are top notch,” says Loschiavo. “Each and every Desert Gardens employee was chosen for their caring nature, experience and professionalism. And we offer one-on-one care, which is really hard to find elsewhere.”

Loschiavo adds that Desert Gardens is fortunate to have Robin Duffy as their licensee house Manager and Administrator for her extensive experience in the industry and unparalleled care for seniors. Having successfully managed large facilities in Tucson, Robin was one of the individuals (along with Desert Gardens’ PRN Nurse) responsible for bringing the Eden alternative to the first facility in Arizona.

“Robin is well regarded in the community and has an immaculate reputation,” adds Loschiavo. We are very excited to have her fully on board!”
Loschiavo notes that although Desert Gardens only opened its doors in March of this year, it is already more than half full.

“We are proud of the fact that we are an affordable higher end assisted living home. Our residents are happy and well-cared for. Not surprisingly, we’ve had a lot of interest and don’t expect our remaining beds to stay empty for long!”

Desert Gardens offers a number of advantages and features:

• An individualized service plan for each resident
• Certified caregivers onsite 24 hours a day with a ratio of 5:1 residents to caregivers
• Assistance with dressing, eating, bathing, walking and personal hygiene
• Private and semi-private rooms
• “Open door” policy for visitors

• Three delicious meals per day; nutritious snacks always available
• Constant open communication with family members
• And a lot more.

In addition, Desert Gardens is one of the few homes in the area that adheres by the Eden Alternative. This revolutionary program was designed to improve the well-being of Elders and their care partners by transforming the communities in which they live and work and eliminate loneliness, helplessness, and boredom.
“We can provide you with peace of mind in the knowledge that your loved ones are being cared for like family,” concludes Loschiavo. “Give us a call or stop by – we’d be happy to give you a tour and answer any questions you might have.”

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) explained in a new article by medical consultant Dr. Sohail Aman

Dr. Sohail Aman’s new article details the symptoms, causes and treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.

The complexity of the Alzheimer’s disease makes it untreatable and unpreventable. However, the medicines prescribed can be helpful in treating the individual symptoms…”

— Sohail Aman, MD, medical consultant

MOBILE, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2019 / — Alzheimer’s disease, the most common cause of dementia, is a neurological disorder that occurs due to continuous degeneration of the brain cells. This incurable and irreversible disease hampers a patient’s cognitive and physical abilities. A person suffering from Alzheimer’s disease would eventually lose all memory and even cease to perform everyday tasks independently.

Medical Consultant Sohail Aman has published an article on this issue, which is available on his blog at

As a progressive disease, it worsens with time. Alzheimer’s develops slowly in the beginning but gets fatal as it enters advanced stages and various associated health concerns like dehydration, infections start playing a role.

Signs and Symptoms

Some common signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease are:

1. Memory Loss
Earlier symptoms may include forgetfulness or the inability to remember recent conversations or occurrences. The patient may also face difficulty in processing and communicating thoughts. As the memory loss worsens, the patient may keep on repeating something, forget appointments, unable to maintain his check books, and balance accounts, fail to identify people or objects, lose possessions or even get lost himself.

2. Sluggish Reasoning and Decision-Making Process
People suffering from Alzheimer’s find it particularly challenging to focus reason and multitask. With time, the patient’s decision-making skills will get poorer and the responses towards everyday issues will get slower.

3. Difficulty in Routine Activities
An Alzheimer’s patient struggles with everyday tasks. At an advanced stage, routine chores like eating, dressing and bathing may also become extremely arduous.

4. Behavioral Changes

A change in behavior is a significant symptom. The patient experiences mood swings, depression, insomnia, and aggressiveness. Social skills deteriorate and the patients feel surrounded by mistrust and delusions.


Definite causes of Alzheimer’s disease remain unknown to date. A mere 1% of patients have been observed to get the disease through genetics or their personal habits. A family history of Alzheimer’s disease increases the risk. Head traumas, unhealthy sleep patterns, and old age are also considered as possible causes in some studies. It has been found that the part of the brain responsible to retain and control memory, the hippocampus, undergoes neurological decay. A considerable amount of neurons die by the time the early signs of the disease start to manifest.
The disease spreads in different areas of the cerebral cortex. Two brain proteins are found to play a major role in causing the disease.

* Plaques
The remnants of larger proteins, Beta-amyloids, accumulate in the brain over time causing the decay of brain cells. The dead cells and bits of proteins combine to form plaque which impedes the functioning of the brain.
* Tangles
The neurological transport system is largely supported by Tau proteins. These special proteins restructure themselves as neuro-fibrillary tangles which are lethal to the cells and cause the transport system to collapse in an Alzheimer’s infected brain.


The complexity of the Alzheimer’s disease makes it untreatable and unpreventable. However, the medicines prescribed can be helpful in treating the individual symptoms and decreasing the rate of cellular degeneration. Cholinesterase inhibitors are the type of drugs prescribed in early stages of the Alzheimer’s disease. According to the studies, these medicines help preserve a chemical called acetylcholine in the brain which prevents memory loss to some degree. Unfortunately, the inhibitors lose their effectiveness as the disease grows.

About Dr. Sohail Aman

Dr. Sohail Aman is a Consultant in Internal Medicine in Mobile, Alabama. He graduated from Medical School in 1992, and has completed several post-graduate training programs in internal medicine and a year in neurology training. He also holds a LMCC (Licentiate medical Council of Canada) certification and is a Fellow American College of Physicians, participates as a preceptor in medical Students clinical training program.

Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc. is Proud to Offer their RBID Tour of Home

Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc. RBID Tour of Home

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2019 / — Traditional open houses are sometimes uncomfortable for both buyers and sellers because you've often got a hovering agent watching your every move. Most importantly, they're NOT very effective at selling homes either. In fact, according to industry statistics, less than 1% of homes are sold as a result of a traditional open house. Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc., the real estate office with the proven track records in the Greater Los Angeles area, created a solution to solve this problem by launching their RBID Tour of Home.

Headed by their CEO, Rudy Lira Kusuma, the team designed the RBID Home Selling System to create a sense of urgency, excitement, and perception of value for the prospective buyers. One of the methods used for this system is the RBID Tour of Home, where the team brings in the pre-approved and pre-qualified buyers to see the property just within 30-minutes to 1-hour time frame in which multiple offers can be created during the tour. The team has more than 45,000 pre-approved buyers in their database that are ready, motivate, and willing to make offers on the properties.

Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc. does not do the traditional method of an open house where the house is available for the public for the entire day and the listing agents only wait and hope for the potential buyers to come in. Statistics show that less than 1% of homes can be sold due to the traditional method of an open house.

Another purpose of their RBID Tour of Home is to gather all the pre-qualified and pre-approved buyers to line up in front of the properties and to create a sense of urgency for the public to view and also submit offers on the properties. This RBID Tour of Home offers a lot of benefits for the sellers where they can receive multiple offers within the short time period, their homes sold as-is, at the price acceptable to the sellers and within their time frame.

The RBID Homes also come with full disclosures of the property so that the buyers will have more confidence before submitting their offers. Mr. Kusuma of Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc. understands the needs of the clients. With that, they use the best approach for the convenience and satisfaction of their customers. They work with integrity and honesty because they want to maintain their solid reputation in the real estate industry.

About Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Inc.:
