Exclusive Programming Designed to Honor Each Resident's Past and Present
Featuring Montessori Moments in Time™ Memory Care
Our Montessori Moments in Time™ program is the cornerstone of Meridian Senior Living's comprehensive approach to memory care and was developed through extensive research and first-hand experience with our residents throughout the years.
Residents living with Alzheimer's or other dementia require exceptional care and attention. Our trained staff place great importance on making every day purposeful and special in our memory care community. At the core of the MMIT program is recognizing each person's strengths and weakness and drafting activities specifically for that resident that reduce agitation, increase socialization and engagement, and keep them safe, but active.
Our secure, specialized memory care neighborhood offers spacious private suites in a home-like setting, with supervised access to host of amenities, and passionate, caring staff. Boasting an excellent staff-to-resident ratio, our new, state-of-the-art communication system will provide peace of mind and security.
A Day in the Life
In our Memory Care neighborhood, we invite residents to participate in programs that embrace life and their preferred routines. Using the Validation Method as the foundation of our MMIT program, we take a holistic and empathetic approach to care and communication with our memory care residents.
Our exclusive program allows residents to live fully in each moment. These moments will lead residents to new experiences that promote heightened levels of purpose by opening their world up to enjoyment and friendships that might otherwise be missed.
Each resident will be cared for by our specially-trained Memory Care team, who will provide individual service and care to each resident with our number one goal to make every day special. Providing meaningful interactions with residents can mean the world to someone living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Our team will have regularly scheduled care plan meetings with families to foster open communication and ensure your loved one’s needs are being met.
Residents will receive assistance in dressing, personal hygiene and support during meals to preserve their highest level of dignity. CABA offers supervised access to all amenities and exclusive use of the secured courtyard.
