  • The Most Outstanding Memory Care Facility Anywhere

    Maplewood at Brewster is an absolutely wonderful place for Memory Care or in addition assisted and Independent living. In particular I was totally amazed at how incredible the staff, services, facility and food were during my 16 months there with my wife [name removed] who had Early Onset Alzheimer's. I took all my meals with her plus sometimes stayed for activities. After supper [name removed] watched a Netflix movie with her friends while I went home to feed the dog returning to watch TV in her room with her. I have firsthand knowledge of quite a number of Memory Care facilities because both my mother in law and sister in law passed away from Alzheimer's. I have also been a member of the Alzheimer's association for 25 years through which I have become very familiar with what is required in Memory Care. Maplewood at Brewster far exceeds any of those requirements. The staff is just extraordinary in their kindness, care and compassion for all of the residents in Memory Care. They all go out of their way to insure that the needs of everyone are well taken care of with great understanding of what it takes to deal with the various issues of dementia in all of its challenging forms. There are optional activities throughout the day of all sorts to keep residents engaged and involved where the staff is well trained in being able to get through the fog of dementia. Music is a good part of it all which has been shown to be one of the best ways to get through to people with dementia. Every week there may be several musical groups to entertain as well as always having sing-alongs etc. Each day features discussion of lighthearted items like what happened on this day in history etc. There are also games and art projects to enjoy for residents who want. Beyond all of this there are also once or twice weekly out and about trips on a handicap equipped Maplewood van with a guide and assistants taking those who wish on short tours and trips to various nearby places around Cape Cod. This can be anything from a trip to the beach and other scenic places to getting ice cream etc. Memory Care at Maplewood at Brewster is an extraordinary facility in itself featuring two beautiful lounges with big screen TV, a wonderful art room, library and magnificent outdoor courtyard. The courtyard which is completely secure features an outdoor fireplace, pergola, covered picnic tables and benches. It is all beautifully landscaped with a short paved path where residents can walk around the garden in season. As to the food it is all absolutely delicious featuring restaurant quality items with choices at each meal. The variety is amazing ranging across the board from wonderful local seafood and meats to local garden vegetables. There is an endless variety of fresh made great tasting deserts. All of this is served by the very attentive staff in the most amazing dining room with open kitchen where you can see the chef at work. In case it is not obvious I consider Maplewood at Brewster to be the finest facility of its kind anywhere for Memory Care or assisted and independent living for that matter. Any person with dementia issues given their situation is sure to get the most out of life when living there due to the extraordinary staff, wonderful activities, amazing facility and outstanding food.

  • I can sleep at night ;0)

    I cannot say enough about Maplewood at Brewster. The staff is warm and welcoming. The food is incredible and the difference in my Dad within just a month was incredible. My Dad is a retired Veteran, who is not very talkative but sweet. Living alone was not an option for him and he had become depressed. He was sitting too much due to lack or drive for interaction and activity.... and in chronic pain due to this. With no one to talk to he became more of a recluse and at first we thought he was becoming a tiny bit forgetful (I was terrified that this may be due to onset of Alzheimers). He did not require assistance (a level of care), but if he missed a meal they would check on him. The staff helped him socialize in the beginning so my fear of him sitting alone was quelled. I sleep better at night! I love him so and no longer worry. Dad moved into Maplewood. Within a month (yes, just a month), he was less pale, having meals with friends, walking better with an improved posture AND his memory improved as he began moving around a socializing. His mind, body and spirit were being exercised ;0) I work in the healthcare field so my standards are extremely high. Maplewood does not disappoint in terms of elder activities and embodies what assisted living should be. We consider everyone at Maplewood our extended family!
