Tranquillity at Fredericktowne Breaks Ground for New Memory Care Program
Our senior living community celebrated the opening of its new In the Moment® memory care program with a special ground breaking ceremony on Wednesday, December 7. Community representatives in attendance included Mia Brust of the Department of Aging and Community Liaisons from both Frederick County and Carroll County Hospices.
The unique In the Moment®approach to memory care focuses on daily interactions that are customized for each individual. Rather than relying on a pre-determined schedule of activities, this approach uses the 6 Principles of Wellbeing that include physical, spiritual, artistic, community, education and leisure interactions. The goal is to engage the individual at that particular moment in time that they are experiencing and offer a comforting and compassionate interaction.
“Memory loss often takes the form of confusion with medications, needing reminders about personal hygiene as well as challenges in planning or problem solving,” says Terry Miller, Executive Director of Tranquillity at Fredericktowne. “Our care addresses these concerns and provides safety and comfort for the individual and peace of mind for families.”
