Memory Care in Olney, MD

Turning stories into stability for Memory Care residents.

Life changes when you’re living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Your world starts to shrink from a wide collection of acquaintances and friends down to family and best friends. And every day is an opportunity to conquer new challenges.

Our Memory Care community in Olney, MD, a charming town with shops, restaurants and a hometown feel, provides 24-hour care in a setting designed to evoke the familiar comforts of home. Our specially trained team members take the time to get to know our residents. Not just their current lives, but all the stories that make them who they are.

We could share so many stories about how our personalized approach has enriched the lives of Artis Memory Care residents. Here are two of our favorites.

Richard and Jenni Still Celebrating After 70+ Years.

Richard and Jenni have been together for over 70 years, but when you see them together it feels like they’re still on their honeymoon. On his weekly visits to see Jenni at the community Richard brings her goodies and says he’s come to “visit his bride.” As soon as they see each other, they’re faces break out into a big smile and they share a long embrace. Throughout their entire visit, they have the greatest time talking and laughing together. Until it’s time for Richard to go. Then they say goodbye with one last hug until Richard dutifully returns again with sweet treats and even sweeter words for his Jenni.

Music on Re-Pete.

Olney resident Pete is a true man of the 60s. He’s always listening to MoTown even carrying his Amazon Alexa around with him to play his favorite tunes wherever he goes. His son, also named Pete, is a music fan too and even knows how to play guitar. So whenever Pete would visit his dad Pete, he’d bring along his guitar and play a few songs. Eventually, what started out as Pete playing for Pete quietly in the corner, has evolved into a monthly sing-along for residents and their families. Known around the community as The Re-Petes, Pete handles the lead vocals while Pete backs him on guitar. Together, they create beautiful music straight from the heart.

The Artis Way

The Artis Way is more than how we do our work. It’s the lighthouse that guides us in supporting our residents, their families, our associates, and the long-term viability of our company. These five core values help us set a high standard for quality, safety, and well-being every day.

A = All Together
We believe that teamwork, accountability, and mutual respect create an environment where everyone is motivated to be and do their best. We understand interdependence and consider the impact of business decisions on residents, associates, families, local partners, and owners.

R = Radiate Positivity & Compassion
We recognize that our attitudes directly affect our residents and each other. We know positivity is integral to holistic well-being and is a collective effort, shared and amplified by associates, residents, families, and our local partners alike. We support residents and each other in building resilience, helping residents to navigate the challenges of aging and dementia with warmth and tenderness.

T = Thoughtfulness Wins
We think before we act, because we are ultimately responsible for our actions and decisions. We exhibit empathy and integrity. We strive to know and honor each other’s stories and to make each moment meaningful. We exhibit behavior that inspires others to do what’s right for our residents, their families, and our associates.

I = Inspired Well-Being
We believe that optimal well-being can be achieved at any age, and we aim to create an environment that encourages individuality and independence. We believe that the right mix of sleep, nutrition, natural light, movement, meaningful relationships, and opportunities for play are the secret to living an inspired and present life.

S = Strive To Be Better
We know that while we pride ourselves on what we do, continuous improvement is how we maintain an Artis level of quality. We know that profitability allows us to maintain our promises to residents and families. We embrace change, nimbly adapt from failures, and frequently celebrate successes.
