Person-Centered Memory Care in Silver Spring, Maryland

memory-care-art-classDedicated to providing premier dementia care with a whole lotta heart, The Landing of Silver Spring serves seniors in Silver Spring, Maryland. We know that a dementia diagnosis can be devastating for the whole family and put a strain on family relationships. At The Landing of Silver Spring memory care, we are your trusted partner in caregiving, providing excellent care along the way.

We believe that all of our residents, no matter where they are in their dementia journey, can live with a whole lotta heart. It’s more than something we say, it’s how we live every day and our life-enhancing services empower residents to live their best life. Our residents and their comfort, health, and wellness are our top priority. Our staff is caring and dedicated to our residents, and they receive specialized dementia training, including virtual dementia tours where they experience the disorientation and confusion of people with dementia, in order to provide the highest-quality care.

High Quality, Tailored Memory Care at The Landing of Silver Spring

Our caring staff is committed to knowing each resident personally. It all starts with move-in where we learn about each resident’s life history, their family members’ names, places they have lived, and more. As we get to know your loved one, we have a living document that we call, “54 Things About Me”, and we take careful note of likes, dislikes, preferences, and things to motivate your loved one. This document is updated and changes are recorded in real-time as dementia progresses.

Our holistic memory care program is called Opal and based on Teepa Snow’s GEM levels and Positive Approach to Care. We use Opal’s 7 pillars of wellness to promote holistic treatment and encourage residents to continue to live with purpose.

Our signature PrimeFit program focuses on the unique physical abilities of each resident in both group and private sessions. We take into consideration the preferences and life story of our residents to create active moments throughout the day.

From scenic drives and themed dinners to holiday events and excursions, we ensure our residents feel included in society and maintain important social connections.

By providing a range of activities like picnics in the park, nature preserves, or live music at the community, our residents have the opportunity to experience the very things that have had importance to them their entire lives while also cultivating new experiences and interests.

Because spirituality means different things to different people, we draw from the life story of our residents to provide daily opportunities to practice meaningful spirituality in ways that are important to each resident.

Activities that elicit expression and provide sensory stimulation, like drawing, clay sculpting, or flower arranging are just a few of the ways residents can express themselves creatively each and every day.

Our goal is to offer daily opportunities for residents to complete tasks with a purpose. We find that tasks, like watering plants or helping the staff, become quite meaningful for residents.

We know that individuals living with a diagnosis of dementia often experience and express themselves through the five senses. The Opal program provides daily opportunities for our residents to positively interact in our community through what they see, hear, touch, taste, and smell.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does memory care consist of?

Memory care often consists of care that is quite similar to assisted living, however, each and every aspect of memory care is designed with seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia in mind. Memory care communities are often secured to prevent wandering and provide dementia-friendly meals that are easy for residents with memory loss to consume.

What is the average stay in a memory care facility?

The average stay in a memory care community varies per individual, but residents often stay in a memory care community from a few months up to three years time. Contact The Landing at Silver Spring to learn more about our Alzheimer’s care in Silver Spring, MD.

When should I put my senior loved with memory loss one in dementia care?

It can be difficult to know when the right time is to put a parent or senior loved one in memory care. However, if a loved one is experiencing a lack of safety and security and an increase in wandering, then it may be the right time for a move to a memory care setting.

What is the difference between assisted living and dementia care?

There are not many differences between assisted living and memory care, as both focus on caring for a senior resident’s activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, eating, medication management assistance, etc.). However, every aspect of memory care, from activities to the physical design of the community, is made with seniors with dementia in mind.

What should I look for in a memory care community?

A few things to keep in mind when looking at memory care facilities include the level of care provided, the type of training staff members have, the average cost, etc. You can research what the best type of care and community may be for you or your loved one, on the state of Maryland’s Long-Term Care website.

Is memory care in Maryland more expensive than assisted living?

Memory care is often more expensive than assisted living settings, as it provides everything assisted living does, with additional care to keep residents with dementia well. The Genworth Cost of Care Survey lists the average monthly cost of memory care in the Silver Spring area, at $6,000.
