The 4 Keys to Successful Aging

At the core of our care philosophy are the 4 Keys to Successful Aging based on over a decade of research from the MacArthur Foundation.

While simple in concept, this important research shows that these 4 Keys to Successful Aging are critical to the health and well being of seniors as they age. As an organization that values quality research from the medical community, we’ve embraced the 4 Keys to Successful Aging as a framework in which to keep our residents thriving and happy.

  • Remain physically active
  • Incorporate mental stimulation into your daily life
  • Maintain a good social network with emotional support
  • Include a sense of purpose in life

The wide variety of fun and purposeful activities we provide for our residents are planned based on their support of these 4 key areas. The following are some examples of these activities.

The Music Reminiscing Program

AT MD Senior Living, our residents are each provided an Amazon Echo Show device and a subscription to Amazon Music. Our staff spends the time with each resident to explore their favorite artists and songs from the past.

That’s when the magic happens.

The caregivers set the music in motion whenever our residents want to reminisce and listen to their favorites from the past. Favorite playlists lead to stories from childhood and special memories. The end result is often a new sense of connection between residents as they share their favorite music with one another.
