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.

Continuing Care Retirement Communities Myths

Sat, Jan 22 2011 at 11:43am

Continuing Care Retirement Community Myth #1:   

When you join a CCRC (continuing care retirement community) you are committed for life!    Not any more!

The typical CCRC offers two general kinds of contracts --- one where over a period of 50 months the very substantial entrance fee becomes completely non-refundable and another residential contract that reduces the entrance fee by 20% which often translates into an expense of some $20,000 to $40,000 !   To leave such a CCRC means taking a major financial loss leaving people with the uncomfortable  feeling of being ‘LOCKED IN’ or ‘TRAPPED’!

At MBCC we realize that the new generation of retirement age people value control and flexibility and want to keep their options always open --- and we make it easy for them to do just that.   At MBCC you always get 100% of your Membership Fee back.   If 5 years from now you decide to move out West you take your money with you --- and should you pass away while a Member, your estate gets all the Membership Fee back.  

At MBCC we work hard to deserve your business each and every day – not just at the time you move in.   At MBCC you always retain control of your future – and that’s the way it should be!

Thanks to MBCC the CCRC Myth of being Locked IN is BUSTED!
