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.

EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT MEREDITH BAY COLONY CLUB IN 500 WORDS OR LESS

 To Our Members and Staff ----------

Nobody represents MBCC better than you do!    While first time visitors certainly like our building and amenities --- what really impresses them the most is their interactions with YOU – our Members and Staff!    They really appreciate your openness and willingness to help!   The summary that follows is a helpful guide that we hope will make it easier for all of us to understand  some of the important points about our different programs.   The better we understand, the better we can explain.   I hope that you find it helpful – and that you will let me know what I can do to make future versions even more helpful!

1.      What is Meredith Bay Colony Club?

Meredith Bay Colony Club is a wonderful new not-for-profit Active Adult, Continuing Care Retirement Community that opened in June 2008.   It is comprised of 41 Independent Apartments, 20 Private Assisted Living Apartments, 24 Private Memory Support Apartments, and offers Home Health Care, Respite Care, and Adult Day Care!

 2.      Independent Living at The Club!

 The Club is the best of Independent Living on Your terms!   The Membership Fee is always 100% returnable and there is absolutely no additional 2nd person membership or monthly fee.  No financial or health disclosures are required!   Membership and monthly fees vary with the size of the apartment selected and range from $175,00 to $359,000 with monthly fees from $1,100 to $1,795.    The monthly fees include virtually everything except for dining and secure underground parking.   Amenities include the Fitness Center, the 91 degree Pool, Emergency Call Pendant, local transportation, and various other meeting and activity spaces.   Pets are of course welcome!   We believe that our Independent Members have the right to have the care/services of their choice provided in the setting of their choice by the providers of their choice.   To that end we are prepared to assist Members in any way that we can.

 3.      The INN – Distinctive Assisted Living at It’s Best!

 At The INN we have 20 all private one and two room air conditioned Apartments each with their own Kitchenette and each with a private bathroom including shower.  There is no entrance fee and no application fee and our daily fees are the lowest in the area!    At The INN all meals are included along with full housekeeping and laundry services and the availability of a great Activity Program that helps to keep everyone connected and active!  

 4.      The GARDENS -  Memory Support at its Best!

 The GARDENS is our state of the art assisted living center especially designed to provide for dignified, safe and secure assistance to those with Alzheimer’s disease.   We have 24 all private apartments, each complete with it’s own bathroom including shower.   In The GARDENS we work together with Families to ‘Celebrate the Moments’ in order to help each Member get the most enjoyment from each and every day.   There is no entrance or application fee and our daily rates are the lowest in the area. 

 5.      The Country Day Program – Adult Day Only Service

 Especially designed for those with Alzheimer’s disease, the Country Day Program provides a wonderfully flexible and affordable way for someone with memory loss to increase their socialization while at the same time providing  respite for their primary caregiver.    Our Country Day Partners  attend on the schedule of their choosing – some once a week and others more often.  The Country Day Program provides for a wonderful social experience for our Partners with terms that could not be more convenient or affordable.

 6.      Respite --  Short Term Stays at The INN or The GARDENS

 It is as much a vacation for our ‘temporary’ Member as it is for Family who oftentimes is heading off for vacation themselves.    Whether for a weekend, a month or all season – we cater to the individual needs of families to provide short-term stays at a very affordable cost with absolutely no entrance or application fees!

 7.      Colony Home Care ----  Caring for You on Your Terms!

 We provide Home Care services in as little as 15 minute increments (not the 2 hour minimums that others require) and this means that you only pay for just the amount of service that you need.   Whether we provide medication management, housekeeping services or more --- we stand ready to help!    Our Home Care is not just available to our Members --- but to those in the outside community as well.
