CELEBRATING THE MOMENTS

CELEBRATING THE MOMENTS is Meredith Bay Colony Club’s unique Alzheimer’s Care and Memory Support Program that is provided in our State-of-the-Art, safe and secure memory support center that we call The GARDENS. The GARDENS is comprised of 24 all private apartments – each with its own bathroom and private shower. Dignity, Privacy, Safety and Security are the basic building blocks on top of which CELEBRATING THE MOMENTS is built.

Let there be no mistake about it --- Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease that affects not just the individual – but the families who so often provide the needed ongoing support and care. The CELEBRATING THE MOMENTS program at The GARDENS at MBCC provides Members and their families not just the sense of security that comes from living in a safe, secure yet friendly residential setting – but also a rediscovered source of joy that can come from being in a setting that allows each Member to find a little bit of success each and every day --- to find something to be proud of and to find something to smile about!

KEY ELEMENTS OF CELEBRATING THE MOMENTS

1. We focus on all that a Person is right now and all that they can still be --- not on what they have lost or no longer can do.

2. We believe that each person is wonderfully complex and multi-dimensional including emotional, creative, inquisitive, musical, spiritual and physical aspects – in addition to cognitive and memory based functions. We recognize that although life will be different because of cognitive changes – that it can and should be as interesting, as stimulating and as much fun as possible.

3. We respect the need for some structure and predictability – but we celebrate spontaneity and the opportunity to discover new ways to help make people smile.

4. We believe in ‘seizing the moment’ even if that means upsetting the ‘schedule’. So what if we have lunch an hour late?

5. We respect the individual and acknowledge that there will be changes from month to month and from day to day. We realize that we need to constantly readjust our approach in order to meet our Member’s constantly changing needs.

6. Our Member’s Family are our friends and we realize that by supporting our Member’s families that we support our Members.

7. Our Staff Members are artists who wonderfully balance Caring and Creativity to meet not only the practical needs – but Quality of Life needs as well.

8. A safe and secure social setting that is open and welcoming to all Members is essential to creating an environment that is both fun and uplifting.

No 2nd Person Fees at MBCC

Fri, Nov 26 2010 at 10:46am

No 2nd Person Fees at MBCC!     We are proud to report that we are the only New Hampshire Continuing Care Retirement Community that does not charge an additional fee for a 2nd person.   These fees are often $60,000 and more!    We also do not charge an additional $60 - $80 per month as other places do.   There is absolutely no reason for you to pay more and to get less!

Why do others charge more for a 2nd person?   Wouldn’t they be willing to welcome a single person to the same apartment for less?  The simple answer is that it has become a standard practice for retirement communities and it has gone unquestioned except by MBCC.   At Meredith Bay Colony Club we don’t play the ‘cost shifting’ game and we keep our financial arrangements straightforward and easy to understand.   You always get 100% of your entrance fee back --- to you if you later pack up and move to Sedona, or to your family (your estate) should you die while a Member here.  

 Two for the Price of One!    You don’t need to be a married couple to take advantage of the no charge for the 2nd person.   There is absolutely no reason why two people cannot share both the entrance fee and the monthly fee and both save a bundle in the process!
