Our Approach

Since 1973, the MCFI Center for Healthy Aging has offered older adults a way to continue to live in their homes, enjoy an active social life and get the personal, professional care they  need to achieve their highest levels of independence.

With an emphasis on wellness and access to a wide variety of therapies, our clients often improve their level of functioning. Our clinical team works with each client to develop a personal wellness plan and work toward their goals. Our approach is designed to give clients a variety of options to choose from to create daily experiences that are meaningful to them.

  • Outcome-based: Our clinical team helps clients set personal wellness goals and builds each day around activities designed to help clients achieve those goals.
  • Client choice: Clients are encouraged to design their own meaningful day by choosing from a variety of programming options, all tailored to meet their specific needs and interests.
  • Sensitive to functioning levels: We welcome clients who have a variety of functioning levels. Clinical staff members assess the needs of individual clients  and adjust activities to ensure that they are able to participate to the fullest extent possible.
  • Intergenerational: Children often join our older adults for holiday celebrations, reading time and other enjoyable activities.
