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 Provide Our Own Home Care!

Mon, May 16 2011 at 02:11pm

WHY MBCC PROVIDES IT’S OWN HOME CARE!

If life were predictable and money were no object then relying on outside providers to take care of our Members would make perfect sense.   There are many good agencies out there and we certainly affirm the right of our Members to use the provider of their choice.   The problem is that outside agencies cannot always respond quickly and most often they need to charge 2 and 3 hour minimums when perhaps only 30 minutes of service is needed.    That is why we created Colony Home Care – so that no matter what day, no matter what time of day --- that our Members can receive the care and services that they want at a cost that they can afford.   We are able to bill out in as short as 15 minutes increments which for many people is all the caregiver time that they need in a given day.   We know that our Members prefer receiving Care and Services from our own Staff who they already know and trust.  We realize that people choose a retirement community for the services that it provides that is better than what they could have done on their own living at home.   Caring for our Members is not something that we can contract out to others.   The closer you look – the more you will come to appreciate the MBCC Difference!
