GULL CREEK IS THE PREMIERE MEMORY CARE COMMUNITY FOR OLDER ADULTS ON MARYLAND’S EASTERN SHORE.
At Gull Creek, we provide opportunities for residents to maintain a sense of purpose and belonging throughout the differnt seasons of dementia.
We focus on abilities rather than limitations because we understand that as we age, our hearts hopes and desires do not. We continuously seek innovation through a variety of philosophies to sustain the aspects of life that really matter. We use a person’s life story to create a tailored, personalized approach to serving individuals and their families.
We offer social clubs, such as our men’s group, book club and sewing circle, along with community service projects, pet therapy, spiritual services, cognitive stimulation, outings, an outdoor garden and physical and musical therapy.
