Introducing Inspīr’s Art Therapist: Amanda Clears
MEETING INSPĪR’S INTEGRATED CARE TEAM: DR. CLAIRE DAVENPORT, GERIATRICIAN, PART 2
In part one of our two-part blog series showcasing geriatrician and bioethicist Dr. Claire Davenport, M.D., M.S., we discussed her medical background and high-level contributions to Inspīr’s Integrated Care Model (ICM). Now, we’re going to dive even deeper to get more insights regarding her role and values as a key player in the healthcare industry.
MEETING INSPĪR’S INTEGRATED CARE TEAM: DR. CLAIRE DAVENPORT, GERIATRICIAN, PART 1
Inspīr’s Integrated Care Model (ICM) is an interdisciplinary, team-based, person-centered approach to whole-person health and wellness. This approach provides highly coordinated, data-driven, and outcome-focused care across providers, settings, and time. Built on a philosophy of vibrant, intentional living and meaningful connections, the ICM synthesizes the expertise of medical professionals across multiple disciplines for the best possible outcomes for our residents.
Creating a Healthy Environment
As one of our Nine Core Elements, we consciously incorporate nature and light into all aspects of our residence. Our commons spaces are lush with plants and beautiful gardens. Floor-to-ceiling windows fill apartments and common spaces with natural light, and our SkyPark offers an oasis in the city for all to enjoy.
What is it about nature that is so important to our well-being? It is deeply rooted in evolution and is a key part of the continued restoration of energy. It invigorates us and helps alleviate the stresses and negative effects of day-to-day living.
The Importance of Socialization for Seniors
As one of our Nine Core Elements at Inspīr, Belonging is an integral part of what we want residents to feel not only within our residence but in life in general. That’s because we know how important it is for our overall health and well-being. In fact, it has been proven time and time again that people have higher quality lives and live longer when they feel a part of supportive, caring relationships.
Senior Housing Towers Open in Manhattan and Brooklyn
For decades, 70-year-olds in search of age-focused housing in New York were often out of luck. A lack of supply sent them to the suburbs. But now as land prices dip and demand ticks up, developers are adding buildings in prime New York neighborhoods for the post-retirement set.
New York’s Luxury Senior-Living Towers Open to Covid-Era Reality
Covid protocols will guide life at the senior towers for the foreseeable future. On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Omega Healthcare Investors Inc. and Maplewood Senior Living have installed air purifiers and ultraviolet light sanitizers at their tower, called Inspir.
How To Live With Dementia
If you’ve just been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease or another dementia-related illness, you will understandably be experiencing a variety of feelings. These feelings could range anywhere from shock and sadness, to anger and hopelessness, fear and anxiety and many more.
At Inspīr, we think time spent with family is a wise investment. In fact, research has shown that spending time with family can help you live a longer, happier, healthier life. You may be familiar with the work of National Geographic researcher Dan Buettner, who studied cultures around the globe where people lived the longest, healthiest lives. He called these areas Blue Zones and found that the inhabitants shared several social and lifestyle commonalities, including making family members and other loved ones among their highest daily priorities.
Care in a New Way with Oceana Memory Care
Oceana Memory Care at Inspīr offers you a new way to care for your loved ones with dementia or Alzheimer’s. It provides exceptional care and life enrichment opportunities for them, along with expert guidance and support for you. Our evidence-based approach to memory care is integrative, intentional, interdisciplinary, intimate, and individualized. It includes personalized, wellness-focused lifestyle programming, customized care plans, and a highly trained staff—all in a therapeutic and secure setting. This assures that our residents get the most out of every moment, every day.

Inside Inspīr’s Kitchen
At Inspīr, nutrition plays a vital role in the overall health of our residents. Meals are an integral part of everyday living, created to spark the senses and rekindle memories. Chef Giovanni Maffei brings his world-inspired cuisine to both 1802, our fine dining restaurant, and Onyx, our bistro-style venue on the 17th floor.
The Power of Journaling during a Crisis
As self-isolation protocols continue across the nation, especially in senior living communities, it can be hard to stay positive. Many seniors have spent months away from their families, friends, and grandchildren while doing their part to stay safe. This sense of isolation can be difficult to cope with and can have lasting effects on our well-being. It’s crucial for seniors to find ways to cope with the emotional stress of being both lonely and isolated from others.
The Stress-Reducing Benefits of Aromatherapy
As we continue to face uncertain times across our nation, many people are looking for ways to cope with stress and anxiety and reduce their side effects. Long-term stress can have a number of negative effects on the body, both physically and mentally. In fact, according to The Mayo Clinic, long-term stress can lead to anxiety, irritability, anger, headaches, sleeping problems, digestive issues and chest pain.
Dementia Caregiving during COVID-19
Since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, nursing homes across the nation have put policies in place to protect their residents and staff members. As residents in nursing homes and senior living communities continue to practice social-distancing by remaining mostly in their homes, caregivers have been presented with unique challenges.
Returning to Life after COVID-19
Across the United States, towns and states are lifting sanctions to stay at home after more than three months of very isolating times. The urge will be to jump right back to the way life was before, however, continued precautions are advised.
Practicing Mindfulness to Keep Calm and Focused during Crisis
Many of us have experienced a wide range of emotions during these past few weeks as we continue to cope with the effects of COVID-19. At times, you might have felt worried, anxious, and sad, while other times might have brought unexpected joy and gratitude. While it can be difficult to notice in the moment, our bodies are highly sensitive to our surroundings. In fact, stress and anxiety have the potential to increase our risk of certain illnesses and diseases. That’s why it’s so important to learn how to manage our emotions, especially in trying times such as these.
Benefits of Gardening for Seniors
As spring continues in full bloom, now is the best time to think about finally starting your own garden. Because of our current global pandemic, all of us could use a little more joy in our lives. Growing plants, whether it be flowers, vegetables, or fruit, can help improve your mood, decrease anxiety, and improve your overall health. While gardening might be a lifetime interest of yours or something you’ve never tried, its history is long.
The Power of Positive Thinking
As we continue to modify our daily lives during this time of COVID-19, remaining positive can come as a challenge to many of us. Media outlets are constantly publishing news stories that are often sad and alarming but meant to inform us and keep us safe. However, now is the time to remain positive and full of hope. Recent studies, such as this one, suggest that positivity can actually help us live longer, more fulfilled lives.
Tips for Boosting Your Immunity
In the midst of our current global pandemic, many people across the world are taking extra precautions to stay healthy and protect their immune systems. While making sure to wash our hands frequently and sanitizing our homes can help protect us from the virus, there’s more we can do each day to strengthen our immune systems to help us stay healthy. Older adults over the age of 65 are more at risk of having compromised immune systems, which can make it difficult to fight off viruses and other illnesses.
Home Exercises for Seniors
While many of us across the nation are spending the majority of our days inside our homes, it can be tempting to let go of our fitness routines, especially as most recreation facilities have temporarily closed their doors. However, exercise and movement are extremely important factors in keeping us healthy and active, particularly in older adults. Exercise can help reduce feelings of stress and depression, and can even improve our sleep quality. You might be thinking: How can I exercise without my equipment or fitness instructor?
Ways to Combat Social Isolation during COVID-19
As we all do our part to flatten the curve of COVID-19’s global impact, most of us find ourselves self-quarantined in our homes. While self-quarantine is the best thing to do to stay healthy, it can also come with challenges, especially for vulnerable populations. Many older adults are at risk of isolation during this time, especially if they are alone.
Ways to Reduce Stress during a Crisis
During this time of global crisis, it’s not uncommon to become overwhelmed by the influx of frightening news, daily changes in protocol, and the loneliness that can accompany self-quarantine.
Helping Seniors Stay Engaged during COVID-19
We all have felt the impact of the coronavirus outbreak—whether its children staying home from school or small business owners forced to stop operations. Some of us also have people close to us who have contracted the virus.

Chef Giovanni Maffei Joins the Inspīr Team
Is it possible to create an edible time machine? According to Chef Giovanni Maffei, the newly hired Executive Chef at Inspīr, there is. Food triggers memories and infuses a sense of nostalgia that is unsurpassed by other experiences. A simple meal can bring people right back to something they had tasted during their childhood or remind them of a dish they had eaten at a specific place and time.
The Healing Power of Art and Music
What’s not to love about art and music? They are universal languages, and, when combined, their cumulative power to enhance cognitive function grows. They energize the senses, tap into faded memories, and invigorate the soul. These restorative qualities show why art and music will be an integral part of our programming for residents at Inspīr.
Is Laughter Therapeutic? We Think So.
Humor is proven to have many benefits for people of all ages. It helps us get through challenges, cope with change, and lift our spirits. Simply said, humor promotes good health. That’s why it plays a key role in our approach to whole-person wellness at Inspīr. Laughter is one of Nine Core Elements woven into our integrated care plan. So, why is it so important? According to Caregiver.com, “Laughter establishes or restores a positive emotional climate and a sense of connection between two people.
Movement and Mobility: Enhancing Senior Living
Our philosophy at Inspīr Carnegie Hill embraces enhanced wellness. As we develop our core of wellness experts, it is important for us to team up with companies and individuals that support this philosophy. Thus, enabling our residents to live more vital lives.
Dr. Wendy Suzuki Boosts Brain Health with Exercise
Studies show that regular exercise offers a host of benefits to people of all ages. One benefit that speaks to Inspīr’s® philosophy of care is having the ability to exercise the brain to improve memory and thinking skills. To learn more about this topic, we welcomed New York University neuroscientist Dr. Wendy Suzuki to discuss her research and passion for brain health. Suzuki fell in love with studying the brain during her first semester of college when she took a class called The Brain and Its Potential. Taught by renowned neuroscientist Dr. Marian C.

POLISHING THE SILVER
Shirley Freitag has her eye on a coat for next fall: a Norma Kamali sleeping bag model in a searing shade of red. “It’s the one that that fashion guy Talley is always wearing,” she said, referring to André Leon Talley, the high-visibility style world fixture. Ms. Freitag had stopped last week at the offices of Inspir, an upscale Upper East Side senior residence she hopes to move into once construction is finished later this year.
