Monterey Place Alzheimer’s and Memory Care in Columbia, Maryland
Monterey Place is a unique “neighborhood” of Residences at Vantage Point that focuses Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairment in special ways. The I’m Still Here® program pioneered by the Hearthstone Institute uses residents’ enduring senses and skills – such as recognition of facial expressions, touch, art and music – to connect their inner worlds to the outer world of friends, family and caregivers for improved quality of life.
Monterey Place is an I’m Still Here® Center of Excellence
Residences at Vantage Point is the only Life Plan community certified by the Hearthstone Institute (www.thehearthstoneinstitute.org/about) as a model of exemplary memory care in Maryland.
As a Hearthstone Institute Certified Center of Excellence, we strive to alleviate typical symptoms of memory loss through best practices based on research and hands-on experience. Engaging residents in appropriate activities not only lessens anxiety and depression, it can also diminish aggression. Interactive theater programs, arts programs and book clubs all use specialized materials to foster enjoyment and empowerment. In addition, the physical environment is thoughtfully designed, offers room to roam, and features built-in memory cues that reduce frustration.
Every person has distinctive capabilities. An individualized service and care plan is crafted to suit each resident’s needs and interests. The specially trained staff understands and supports your loved one no matter their level of memory impairment, nurturing each person with the compassion and dignity they deserve.
