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.

Competition is a Good Thing!

Competition is Good!

 Some people have asked why would Meredith Bay Colony Club invite the ‘competition’ in the person of Stace Dicker-Hendricks of Wesley Woods onto a radio show that MBCC pays for?   Isn’t that the same thing as promoting the competition?     Here’s the answer why:     Meredith Bay Colony Club is all about choice and options.    Wesley Woods provides a very different senior living option than we do and we realize that different people for very different reasons will prefer one option over another.  I know Wesley Woods to be a great organization and if you are looking for a single detached/duplex style of retirement housing in the Laconia-Gilford area – then they are clearly the people you should be talking to. 

 While I will admit to being partial to all the benefits (both social and practical) that come with apartment style retirement living with a 24 hour Staff presence – I also realize that some people will want to live in a different location (Gilford), will prefer a church connected campus and like the idea of a single detached/duplex design.   It is wonderful that people can have quality options.

 Are there any similarities between Meredith Bay Colony Club and Wesley Woods?

There are many…………

 Both are Not-for-Profit Organizations that were created to serve the changing needs of elders.

 Both realized that today’s Active Retirement age people especially value Affordability, Flexibility and Control and find the traditional retirement community model as being far too expensive and far too restrictive.

 At MBCC we have created a new model for a  Continuing Care Retirement Community that brings together deluxe Independent Apartments, large Assisted Living Suites, a dedicated Memory Support Center, Adult Day Care along with our own Home Care Agency.
