“The Tilden Memory Care team is building a best-in-class approach to dementia caregiving: a smart mix of both in-home and dementia community care. I’m always thankful when a team reaches out to me, because I know that means they’re serious about putting systems and approaches in place that will best serve their residents and their residents’ families. This team is creating a unique, creative approach to meet families and individuals living with dementia where they are—exactly when they need it most.”

“The [residential assisted living] model has been praised by academics and doctors and seems far better suited than traditional facilities to stave off the spread of infection and the isolation that has devastated the elderly in recent months….Less than 8 percent of employees leave their jobs each year, compared with about 55 percent industry-wide.”

- The Washington Post, November 3, 2020
