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.

Why We Recommend Golden View Health Care Center!

Wed, Dec 08 2010 at 05:53pm

Why so we recommend Golden View Health Care Center so emphatically?

 We know that the choice of where to receive care is always that of our Member --- but when we are asked for a recommendation for either Skilled Nursing or Long Term Nursing  --- we without hesitation suggest Golden View because we know what a great job that they do.

 Here are just a few of the reasons:

 -           The most experienced Management of any Lakes Region Nursing Home!

-           The absolute best record of Deficiency Free Licensure Inspections!

-           The only facility to have Skilled Nursing, Long Term Nursing and Assisted Living all under one roof.

-           An ongoing commitment to reinvesting in the facility as is made clear by the major addition and renovations that are presently underway.

-           A very well trained and caring Staff

-           As a not-for-profit organization an ongoing commitment to the greater Lakes Region Community.

-           And the perfect location – not only close and convenient to us – but also to downtown Meredith as well as easy access to the highway.

 There will be times when our Members will be receiving new hips and new knees and other procedures that will require a post hospital stay in Skilled Nursing in order to get the therapeutic rehabilitation needed to return home.   Nobody does it better than Golden View and the convenience of being just down the street from us cannot be beat.   

 We also know that there will be other times where the care needs of an individual will require a permanent move in order to receive the needed 24 hour nursing care that we cannot provide in Assisted Living.   When that happens we can all be grateful that such a wonderful facility such as Golden View is just a couple of minutes away.  

 There are differences between facilities – but I am confident that when you do the comparisons that you will find as we have – that without question – that Golden View always leads the way.
