Maple Ridge – Dedicated to Quality Memory Care in Rockville, MD
We’re not your everyday memory care facility. Maple Ridge is a memory care community in Rockville, Maryland that provides a homelike atmosphere in a semi-country setting. Each resident at Maple Ridge is treated as a unique individual by our dedicated staff.
Maple Ridge is conveniently located in Rockville, MD in Montgomery County. We’re just an 8-minute drive from Leisure World Maryland, 15 minutes from Rockville Town Center, and approximately 45 minutes from Washington, DC.
We are on a private road in a peaceful neighborhood. Residents can sit on the front porch and watch the birds, or see the children playing across the street.
Our Memory Care Staff at Maple Ridge
The mission of our memory care program is simple. To promote a loving, caring environment where residents and their families are treated with dignity and respect. We believe true dementia care is about an intimate relationship with our residents and a strong partnership with our families. We know residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease can have unique support needs. With dedicated caregivers and a small cohort, this allows us the flexibility to easily adapt and cater to their needs.
The quality of life of Maple Ridge memory care residents is our top priority. We have a staff-to-resident ratio of approximately 1:4. This enables us to give each resident the attention and time they deserve.
Unlike some other memory care facilities, Maple Ridge has a low staff turnover rate. We have employees who have been with us for 10 to 25 years or longer. Having a low turnover rate is essential in providing consistency and continuity of care.
In addition to our direct care staff, we also have 2 directors, a delegating nurse, an activity director, a human resources manager, a business manager, and a maintenance director. We work to improve our residents’ health and well-being with stimulating memory care services and activities. This could be anything from artwork to singing to whatever may have once brought a resident joy. In addition to our full-time activity therapist, our caregivers also organize small group activities.
You might find our activity therapist taking residents on a “virtual tour” of someone’s hometown, or a caregiver working on a puzzle with a resident. In the warmer weather, our residents enjoy sitting outside or helping in our beautiful vegetable and flower garden.
Personalized Memory Care
Optimal memory care services mean a central focus on the individual. It means knowing their habits and preferences and helping them make connections. When your loved one moves in, we write a short biography especially for them. We include where they were born, what they spent their lives doing, their families, hobbies, and talents. We do our best to capture their life experiences and accomplishments.
Having a “Family Album” with a biography on each resident gives us the ability to create programming based on the individual’s specific interests and connects us to the people they were before the disease.
People living with dementia still experience joy, comfort, and meaning in their lives. We encourage all our memory care residents to reconnect to their past and we help them do this by telling their stories. This is a critical component of our program. It ensures our caregivers truly know who our residents are. It allows them to connect on a more personal level, one that exceeds simply knowing their medical and physical needs.
Our Community Amenities at Maple Ridge
Not many memory care facilities in Montgomery County are specifically designed to resemble a home that older adults may have once lived in like how Maple Ridge is.
Creating this aura of familiarity is what brings our residents a sense of comfort. We provide amenities designed specifically to make our residents feel comfortable, safe, and well cared for. We do this by considering every aspect of each resident’s life.
Respect is the cornerstone of who we are and our approach to memory care at Maple Ridge. We recognize that our residents are individuals with lifelong experiences. They deserve to be treated with dignity and to maintain their sense of self-worth. We support their right to privacy, their right to choose their daily routine, and their right to live in a manner consistent with their past. We meet them where they are, designing a program that builds on their skills and abilities and maximizes their opportunity for success.
When new residents move in, we gather information from the resident and families to create a short biography on each individual that gives us a glimpse into their lives and what brought them joy. This becomes part of our “Family Album” and is used for staff to get to know our residents and to create an activity program based on each unique individual.
The activities at our community are therefore constantly evolving and may include music, moving nights, art projects, word games, reminiscence therapy, speech therapy, puzzles, and exercise. We believe in meeting our residents where they are. This means understanding who they are, what their life is and has been about. With an appreciation for their uniqueness, we craft our program to their needs and abilities.

This community was great! They were very helpful and informative, and had a lot to offer for a much lower price then a lot of the other surrounding communities! Also love how all their homes are memory care homes in a small intimate environment!

After visiting other facilities I chose Auxiliary House for my father as the staff was very one-on-one, dedicated, caring and their personal involvement with my father was outstanding – also making the family feel reassured and comfortable.
My mother has been a resident at Auxiliary House for over 4 years. We feel so fortunate to have found this wonderful place where the staff care so deeply for all the residents.
My mother has been in Cedar Glen for two and a half years. It was the second facility I visited and my search stopped there. It’s a genuine home, not at all institutional, where all the residents are known and loved as individuals. It’s also very professionally run and there are clearly systems in place to ensure high standards of care. Staff turnover seems almost nonexistent. It’s exactly what a care home should be and I feel so lucky to have found it.
My mother lives here. Ruthie and Anna are the best, not just for managing the facility and communicating to families, but for being visionary and pro-active during these very trying times. I never wonder if my mom is well cared for. Thanks to all the staff for everything they do for all the residents, not just my mom — we’re lucky to have found this home.
Mom moved from Auxiliary House to Hillwood when she needed more care. Both houses are managed by Cedar Creek. Fabulous company that knows dementia inside and out and cares for the residents in small homes (not institutional entities). Staff are great and have a long tenure with the company, the management is helpful and informed, and we couldn’t be happier with the care they provide. Strongly recommend. It was a great place for Mom.
Hillwood is Amazing! My Uncle has been there since October of 2019 and he is very happy. If you want your love one to be safe, happy and well cared for this is the place for them! I am so thankful for all the staff and management do for my Uncle.
I cannot say enough positive things about the wonderful care and attention my mother receives from the superb staff at the Cedar Creek Homes. I feel blessed to have found them.
Exceptional management. Wonderful and VERY dedicated staff. Loving environment. Creative activities. I can’t say enough positive things about my 11 year experience at this home. You will sleep well at night knowing your family member is in the best possible hands.
