Memory Care in Frederick, MD
Dementia Care in Maryland
Do you have a loved one living with memory loss caused by Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia? Know that you are not alone. If there comes a time when your loved one needs more care than you can safely give, turn to Connections Memory Care at Village Crossing, the new senior living community in Frederick, Maryland.
Connections, designed specifically for people with dementia, provides a positive, holistic approach to memory care. Our compassionate, specially trained staff delivers the personalized care your loved one deserves and a lifestyle that adds meaning, joy, and dignity to every day.
We understand and respect that each one of our residents is unique. Each person possesses a rich history, singular experiences, and distinctive gifts. Needs, preferences, and choices vary widely. Our program meets each resident where they are on their journey, promoting retained abilities and changing levels of care as needed.
Most importantly, we make sure residents stay active, keep moving and remain socially connected to one another. We add a little zest to their lives, instilling each day with fun, friendship, and fulfillment.
“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.
