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.

Ashley Dotson Madison

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!

Elaine Kallen Fertig

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.

Kathy Sabatier

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.

Ann Moseley

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.

Dave Chapman

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.

Tracy Perkins

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.

Mary Goldstein

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.

Joanne Irving

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.

Jane Kelley

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.
