If you have ever listened to two people having a conversation in a language that you don’t understand, you know how frustrating it can be to not fully comprehend something. It wasn’t until I hung up the phone with a colleague one day while at home, that I realized that the “lingo” I was using wasn’t something that might be heard with everyday ears. My husband, sitting in the room, sat in awe as I used terms that he couldn’t quite comprehend. He’ll tell me that my phone conversations are like listening to a foreign language; he catches the context, but he’s not quite sure what any of it really means.
According to the National Center for Assisted Living, there are over 30,000 assisted living and other residential care communities in the United States today!

Last week, in honor of ‘The Longest Day’, Markentum went purple to raise Alzheimer’s awareness. We had the opportunity to decorate our office entirely in purple and create a space that promoted Alzheimer’s awareness and brain health, as well as educate ourselves about what living with Alzheimer’s disease is really like.
At Markentum, we have a focus on the senior living industry and love being able to work with senior living communities throughout North America. Being able to help seniors and their loved ones find a place where they feel safe and cared for during their golden years makes every day at work worth it.
As we have previously announced, Kaleb Lee, our Founder, our Rock Star, has not only auditioned for The Voice, but has made it! He had a two-chair turnaround, jumped from Team Blake to Team Kelly and is still going strong. Will he make it all the way?
Kaleb Lee made the hard decision a decade ago to leave his dream of writing and recording music. He left Nashville with his family and landed in Ormond Beach, FL becoming the marketing director for Silversphere. Silversphere works in the senior housing industry providing ‘superhero’ technology solutions, such as Emergency Call Systems, system reporting, support training, and staff management tools.
