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.

I doubt my ‘big’ kids who are now in their twenties have ever seen a telegram – and probably never will.   Well here at MBCC we have reintroduced the concept as of Today!    Not everyone has (or wants) a computer and not everyone wants to write handwritten notes.     This means that if you only do email (and don’t write notes) and your friend/Love One does not have/want a computer – then you are limited to using the telephone in order to keep in touch ------- Until now that is!

 

For free you go to the MBCC Home Page and half way down on the right side you see the ‘Connect’ button and that is your easier than easy way to send a message that we then hand deliver.   It doesn’t get any better than that!   We are the only Continuing Care Retirement Community that I know of that offers this kind of service.

 

Staying connected to people is important --- how we do that is not nearly important.    Sometimes a simple ‘Thinking of You’ message can brighten someone’s entire day.   We hope that you will use this service often!   All you need to know is the name – no address, no email, no telephone number --- if they live here we get the message to them!   Why not give it a try today!
