Tribute at Melford

Entrance to Melford senior living community

Come To Live Here.

We believe that if a community’s focus is strictly on care, they don’t care enough. At Tribute at Melford, great care is just a by-product of bigger and better things.

Come To Live Here.

Remember when you were told that the world doesn’t revolve around you? Well, as a resident at Tribute at Melford, it kind of does.

Right from the get-go, your loved one will have team members who fast become friends and dedicate themselves to their every need. Here older adults have opportunities to learn, laugh and grow and engage in their passions. And they set the pace. Because, after all, it’s all about them.

We couldn’t have picked a better location: right on the Anne Arundel-Prince Georges county line in Maryland, convenient to US 50 and Highway 3. It’s quiet and secluded, with a nest of bald eagles just a few hundred yards away. Maybe you’ll see them on our secure walking trails. Afterwards, relax with good friends in our bistro. The property itself features an elevated, wood-trimmed courtyard used for drinks with friends in the evenings or sunbathing during the day.

If needs arise in the years to come, all of our team members are NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) certified, which is a mouthful to say, but simply means that our team members are prepared and qualified to interact with your loved one as a unique human being, not a case study. Come see us, but remember, visiting is easy. It’s leaving that’s tough.

Meet the Team.

Tribute at Melford team members (employees) come to work each day to build long lasting friendships with our older adults. Many of our key leaders bring valuable experience to our industry from other fields. Simply put, our leaders believe that if we treat our team well, they will, in turn, love our residents well.

What We Offer: Assisted Living & Memory Care


One-size-fits-all is fine for hats and ponchos, but doesn’t cut it when it comes to senior living. That’s why Thrive has a variety of options to suit your specific needs.

Assisted Living is for people who value their independence and are competently in charge of their lives, but need some extra assistance with daily activities. Our kick-butt (pardon our French) team members are on call 24/7 to offer as much (or as little) help as you need.

Memory Care is for those who are living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other forms of changing cognitive abilities. Every member of the Tribute at Melford team is NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) certified, this includes everyone from the chefs and housekeepers to the concierge and nurses. In a nutshell, it means we know what the heck we’re doing. And it means everyone on our team is trained to treat residents like people, not patients.
