I am a friend or relative of a resident
Margaret T Morris Center is an excellent nonprofit facility specializing in memory care. It's 50+ residents are divided into four identical neighborhoods according to level of ability. As residents progress through the disease, they are moved to a different neighborhood with people of their own level. The long term staff is very dedicated and caring. My 72 year old wife has been there for over a year and has been very happy there.

I visited this facility
I recently visited this facility as I am looking for an assisted living facility for myself. I was greeted warmly and taken on a tour of the facility. I realized that the main objective of this facility was for "Memory Care" residents with dementia, alzheimers or less memory loss problems. This was not the type of care that I needed. The staff seemed very kind and gentle with the various residents. they did not encourage their fantasies nor did they play into their confusion; the staff repeated in a very gentle way would try to reorient the residents to present time & place. Regardfless of how many times they had to repeat the information. One of the residents was very fearful of her husband who was visiting as she claimed she did not know him. The aide who was with her just kept saying that he was a kind, gentle man who would not harm her in any way and that the staff member would remain with her and not leave her alone with him until she felt safe. It was more distressing for the husband than for the resident. However, he was told to take a seat in a chair a little bit away from his wife and to speak in a soft tone about things not necessarily try to convince her that he was her husband but to speak of familiar things or incidents from the past. I was impressed that there was such patience and gentleness from the aide toward this resident. I just hope that if ever I am in the situation of needing memory care that I can be placed in a facility such as this one appeared to be.
