Maplewood at Southport: Assisted Living and Memory Care on the Coast

In the summer of 2019, Maplewood at Southport opened its doors to much acclaim as the 14th property in the portfolio. It is the only retirement community in Southport that offers a personalized independent lifestyle and personalized assisted living and memory care services in Fairfield County’s stunningly beautiful coastal hamlet.

When you visit Maplewood at Southport, you’ll discover and warm and welcoming community that evokes the tradition of the rambling Adirondack and coastal New England-style resort hotels. Host friends and family in the impeccably decorated spaces, connect with nature in the wildflower meadow or by the fieldstone fireplace overlooking Sherwood Mill Pond, and savor seasonal gourmet dishes prepared by award-winning chefs. 

Maplewood at Southport offers three programs for residents which includes Vistas™, Tides™, and Currents™. Vistas™ offers a personalized plan and the details of daily living are thoughtfully managed, making every activity and movement easier to enjoy. The community has two distinct, evidence-based memory care programs. Tides™ delivers person-centered support, including appropriate cueing and reminders. The details of living are thoughtfully managed so our residents can remain independent and experience the joys of life. The more structured Currents™ program is for residents with moderate to advanced-stage memory impairment. With our secure, comfortable environment accompanied by enriching programs, Currents™residents thrive while they stay safe.

Southport resident, Pat, tells us why the community has been so important to her. 

“My husband and I were living in our home when I fell and ended up in the hospital. I was also experiencing some memory loss so when I returned home, my husband found it difficult to juggle my care and his business. We carefully considered home care but it didn’t make sense for us. Our daughter lives in the area and soon found “the place.” She was right, Maplewood was perfect for me. When we drove up I thought I was at a hotel, it was so beautiful. Living in a thoughtfully designed space positively affects your health. I’ve met so many interesting people in the community, the programming is intellectually and physically stimulating. The nurses that work with me have been outstanding with my rigorous medications schedule – I’m involved in a clinical trial and they are in tune with all the nuances of timing – it has been incredible. When I need an extra hand or prompt, they are right there by my side and I feel so much safer and at ease knowing the team is there to support me. Maplewood lights the spark of possibility. Through their extensive programming — lectures, exercise, and day trips they create opportunities for residents to connect. From there we develop invaluable friendships. “
