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.

Don't Settle for Just Housing!

DON’T SETTLE FOR JUST HOUSING!

The good news is that today retirement age people have more options than ever in terms of where they can choose to retire.   The bad news is that many of those options are made to look as though they are providing a lot of benefit when in fact they are not.   It has never been more important to comparison shop than it is today.

At one end of the spectrum there are retirement communities with very significant entrance fees that over a period of time become completely non-refundable.   Given that these same communities will most often charge equally significant monthly fees --- your total cost of living there can be extremely high. 

At the other end of the spectrum are those communities who do not charge an entrance fee but do charge a very high monthly fee – yet only provide services and amenities that would be expected in any condominium association.    In these settings residents are paying a premium for what is essentially housing that is priced above the market.

The good news is that you do have a wonderful alternative to these two extremes.   We listened to retirement age consumers to find out what they really wanted and found out that they want:   Value, Flexibility, In-Apartment Services and Sociability.   And that is what we provide at Meredith Bay Colony Club!

Value:       The lowest Entrance Fees, the lowest Monthly Fees, Always 100% return of the Entrance Fee and never a charge for a second person.

Flexibility:   At MBCC you are never locked in like you are at other places.   Things change and if 5 years from now you want to move to Sedona --- you can do so without losing a penny!     

In-Apartment Services:    People want the option of care provided in their own apartment in order to avoid a future move.   At MBCC we are committed to your receiving the services you want in the setting that you want.   At other places if you need more care you need to move to where they provide the care.

 Sociability:  A fun and enjoyable lifestyle is important and our attitude and our setting make it easy for Members to informally connect with each other and have a great time in the process!

A Great Retirement Community is more than just gathering retirement age people together in one place, it’s more than about providing housing  --- it’s about providing you the security and convenience that you need in order to be able to get out heir and enjoy life to the fullest!
