“I have been watching Village Crossing at Worman’s Mill since they poured the foundation. I was thrilled to know it would be a senior assisted living/memory care facility.

This place is more than I could have ever hoped for. My dad moved in this week and became an instant member of the family there. They have thought of everything, and I can’t think of anything else he would need. When they say ‘senior luxury living,’ that is an understatement! This place is amazing! I have seen a positive change in my dad just in the three days he has been there. The staff and management are simply one of a kind.

Thank you, Village Crossing, for making this transition for my dad so wonderful!”

— Kathryn R.

Dementia Care with a Positive Approach®

Connections Memory Care incorporates the leading edge work by Internationally renowned dementia expert Teepa Snow and draws from her program, Positive Approach® to Care. This approach emphasizes the retained skills of residents with dementia, rather than focusing on what they’ve lost.

“The only constant with dementia, or brains in general, is that they are ever-changing.” 

— Teepa Snow

To personalize care further, the GEMS Brain Change Model categorizes dementia progression into six clear stages, allowing caregivers to tailor support based on each resident’s unique strengths and needs. We acknowledge and respect the evolving abilities of each individual, adjusting our expectations accordingly, and ensuring that we offer the most fitting and considerate level of care at every moment. This way, we enhance interactions while minimizing frustrations.
