Babcock Health Care Center

At Salemtowne our team members promote an atmosphere of caring while enhancing the quality of everyday life for the residents.

The Babcock Health Care Center features three unique households designed around a central courtyard. Each household features a sunroom, a large living room, and a dining area. Each private resident room has a private bathroom with shower and a lush courtyard or beautiful campus view.

We believe that compassionate care goes beyond the design of a beautiful space. That’s why we have implemented a person-centered approach to care.

Also known as the household model, Salemtowne’s Babcock Health Care Center has transitioned from a traditional medical model where residents fit within a regimented schedule of activities and, in its place, adopted a system wherein each resident controls their own lives. Residents in each household direct their own schedules with help from a personal service team.

The Hill MUSIC & MEMORY℠ program at Salemtowne enriches the lives of residents who have a wide range of cognitive and physical challenges through the gift of therapeutic music.  Activities staff and volunteers have been trained to create personalized music playlists for residents using iPods or other digital devices thereby enabling them to engage with the world through music-triggered memories. 

Favorite music or songs associated with important personal events can elicit memories of lyrics and the experience connected to the music. Beloved music often calms chaotic brain activity and enables the listener to focus on the present moment and find renewed meaning and connection in their lives.

Founded in 2006, MUSIC & MEMORY℠ is a non-profit organization grounded in neuroscience research with consistent results showing improved quality of life for residents.  Some of the therapeutic benefits of personalized music are: 

  • Increases cooperation and attention
  • Reduces agitation 
  • Enhances engagement and socialization, fostering a calmer social environment 
  • Provides a valuable tool for the effort to reduce reliance on anti-psychotic  and anti-anxiety  medications
