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.Get Costs
