A Long History of Senior Living Services
The Cedar Creek family of memory care communities began with Clifton Woods, the first of our memory care facilities. Up to 8 residents can call Clifton Woods home. Our senior housing facility is set up to resemble a home environment that enables our residents to feel safe and comfortable.

There is nothing more important than fostering normalcy with our residents.
Getting to Know Our Silver Spring Memory Care Residents
We believe in meeting our residents where they are. This means understanding who they are and what their life has been about. With an appreciation for their uniqueness, we craft our program to meet their needs and abilities. Some senior living residents might have a more independent lifestyle while others may need more personal assistance. We can cater to each unique need and create individualized treatment plans.
Each person has a biography in our “Family Album” that gives us a glimpse into their life achievements and experiences. This includes where they grew up, their life accomplishments, and their careers. It includes their families, their pastimes and talents, and what brings them joy.
Daily Life at Our Memory Care Community
We keep our memory care residents involved to encourage a sense of purpose and supporting them along the way. We’re not about bureaucracy, we’re about finding solutions and making life better for people who have little control over their minds and fewer choices about their lives than any of us would want.
Each resident has a private room at Clifton Woods. We have a common dining room, kitchen, living room, and brand new “great room” for residents to spend time together. Our home allows for both privacy and independence, as well as opportunities for socialization with staff and other residents.

These homes are wonderful. My mother was in two of them and my wife was in a third. Extraordinary care, a loving staff, and a family atmosphere.

My dad lived there for about five years before he passed away last year. He had lived in other assisted living facilities before, but nothing compared to the care and love they gave him at Maple Ridge. My sister and I are so thankful to have found them and entrusted our dad’s care to them. Thank you, Maple Ridge.
My mother lived the last few years of her life at Maple Ridge and received wonderful care there. I especially appreciated the pro-active thinking on the part of Anna, the administrator, and the great communication we established regarding Mom’s medical condition. Thanks to all of the staff there for all of their help.
Cedar creek has been so great with my mother, I know she is in excellent quality care and a place she enjoys.
Your help in this challenging period is greatly appreciated. Our entire family extends our thanks for what cedar creek has done for our father.
They have come to me when I felt the most desperate and shed a light on my way. Thank you cedar creek for all you have done.
