Signature Healthcare at Mallard Bay in Cambridge, MD, joined the Eden Alternative Registry on July 7, 2015.

When visitors come to visit this vibrant home they often comment of how warm it feels when they walk through the doors. They notice the friendly faces of the care partner’s employees that greet them and the Elders that are happy and end engaged. This is just one example of how they strive to work and live in harmony here at Mallard Bay.

The care partner employees take great care in getting to know each other and learn the simple pleasure and interests of each Elder. By doing this they can offer therapeutic activities that are meaningful and fun.  Some Elders enjoy cooking, dancing and listening to music while others may enjoy being outside gardening.  This summer the Girl Scouts are coming to enhance the courtyard area and are planning to paint a beautiful mural on one of the walls with the Elders. 

Some days are enjoyed by taking a trip to town for ice cream and shopping or sitting on the front porch visiting with friends and family. There are also many ways to enjoy some peace and quiet such as sitting in the lobby listening to others play the piano, meditating or praying the chapel or relaxing in the multi-sensory room.  Because relationships are so important extra time and attention is put into making sure that everyone that lives and works here feels connected, joyful and supported.
