COCKEYSVILLE, Md. — Broadmead, an independent continuing care retirement community in the Baltimore suburb of Cockeysville, has unveiled plans for two centers of excellence at the community.
One center will offer dementia programming, while the other will handle health and wellness. The programs were designed in collaboration with Johns Hopkins School of Medicine faculty.
The centers will provide best-practice programs to Broadmead residents and the wider community. The Dementia Center of Excellence will assess, intervene and treat older adults with all stages of dementia, including early-stage, as well as offer education and support for caregivers and families. The Health & Wellness Center of Excellence will provide wellness opportunities to older.
Services of the two centers will be phased in across the next year. Broadmead will fund the centers internally and through a fundraising campaign.
Broadmead is a nonprofit community serving approximately 500 seniors on campus and throughout the wider community.
