Welcome to Second Family!

Where TWO Families Become ONE

Our unique program specializes in dementia-specific care within a loving, secure, and therapeutic environment. At Second Family, our members thrive from socializing with others and receiving top-notch care that is based on love and respect. Our member’s caregivers benefit by getting a much-needed respite while knowing their loved ones are with their Second Family.


The Second Family MCC approach is based on the belief that individuals with ADRD should be treated with love and compassion, while using distinctive care tactics to provide meaningful interactions and enhance lives. This approach is person-centered, utilizing My Story biographies, individualized care plans, personal choices, and two-way communication to respect and honor each Member’s unique individuality. We recognize that approach is one of the most important dynamics of dementia care. Truly knowing our residents and establishing a positive and trusting relationship, enables us to provide superior care to our Members.    

At Second Family MCC, within our person-centered approach, we employ dementia staging to assess each Member’s current reality as early, middle, or late stage. This information enables us to foster independence while maintaining safety. Dementia staging further serves to nurture each Member with the appropriate level of care as well as embracing and joining their journey. 

Our Day Program is open 7 AM to 6 PM and enrollment options include:

2 Days – Tuesday & Thursday 
3 Days – Monday, Wednesday, & Friday 
5 Days – Monday through Friday 

Our Night Club is open Tuesdays & Thursdays, 7 PM to 6 AM
