Accreditation Spotlight: Masonicare at Mystic


Christopher Carter of Purple Flag for Dementia Care™ presented the team at Masonicare at Mystic with their Purple Flag signifying accreditation in 2021.

Purple Flag for Dementia Care™ is an accreditation program developed to recognize excellence and drive continuous improvement in the quality of services provided by those who care for individuals living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias. Purple Flag for Dementia Care™ originated through a collaboration between the Institute for Senior Living Education (ISLE) and the Connecticut Assisted Living Association (CALA). Upon approval, providers receive the distinctive Purple Flag as a symbol that communicates their commitment to leadership in the field of memory care. Today, we want to highlight those communities that have pursued and shown commitment to accreditation.

Purple Flag Accredited Senior Living Community, Masonicare at Mystic, located in Mystic, Connecticut, offers peace of mind for its residents with dementia. In fact, their specialized Memory Care neighborhood provides a secure, home-like environment with highly individualized programming that emphasizes self-esteem, dignity and safety for their residents.

More Than Just Memory Care

When Masonicare at Mystic was awarded with Purple Flag accreditation on Monday, Feb. 13th, they were especially pleased to be able to follow in the footsteps of their accredited sister community, Masonicare at Ashlar Village. Lauren Dubuque, Executive Director at Masonicare at Mystic Senior Living, expressed that they sought to be recognized for their dedication to pursuing the best philosophy, educational training requirements, and care practices for residents living with dementia and other memory loss diagnoses. When you see the purple flag flying, you can rest assured that the residents will receive more than just memory care.

Purple Flag Accreditation helps support the reputation we have for good quality care and identifies us as a leader in the area of dementia care and programming.
