Residents can “discover the treasures within” by participating in opportunities for personal pursuits and social activities.
  • Montessori Inspired Lifestyle (MIL) for Memory Care – A resident-driven approach to memory care based on the philosophy of Maria Montessori as adopted for adults with cognitive and physical disabilities by Dr. Cameron Camp. It uses a value-focused approach that highlights the strengths and abilities of each individual, helping them regain some of the skills they have lost, and ties in seamlessly with the Pearls of Life® memory care program. Villa at Terracina Grand is the first to apply the MIL method at this level.
