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!


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.

Supportive Independent Living: A Lakes Region Retirement Community 1st!

Wed, Dec 08 2010 at 10:10am

Supportive Independent:  A Lakes Region Retirement Community First!

 Supportive Independent Living is how we affirm our Mission of ensuring that our Members receive the services that they want, from the provider of their choice, and in the setting that they prefer.  

 Our goal of being the Lakes Region’s Best Choice in Retirement Living meant that we first needed to know what it was that future Members wanted.    What we found was they all wanted a setting that was Affordable, Flexible and that kept them in Control.   These were the ‘Big 3’ in addition to a safe and convenient location, large apartments, amenities and security.   

 What is ‘Supportive Independent Living’?   It’s not just a philosophy –  at MBCC it is about providing people the options they need to make the choices in terms of how they want their care managed.    This is not about one size fitting all --- It is about creating a flexible program that anticipates needs and provides options.

 MBCC is the only Lakes Region retirement community that brings together under one roof Active Senior Independent apartments, distinctive Assisted Living, a specialized Memory Support center, a 91 degree pool and its own Home Health Agency.

This all allows us the capability of providing exactly the kind and frequency of service that a Member wants in a way that is both convenient and affordable.Supportive Independent means being able to get the care that you want on the terms that you want.   We don’t force you to move if it comes to pass that you need additional services but we do provide you choices of how best to receive the care/services that you require in the setting of your choice!
