    About My Business
    Our programs and services are designed with input not only from national experts but also from family members and prospective residents. We treat people as individuals, with dignity and concern for the needs and interests of the whole person. Our full-time activities staff involve our residents as each resident desires and according the resident’s unique potential. The smell of baking cookies; a fireside chat, the sounds of Benny Goodman playing softly in the background as young children color at the feet of their grandmother. In the activities room, four women reminiscence with a Program Coordinator about working as teens at the “five & diner”, as another resident has her nails manicured by a visiting beautician.

    In the kitchen, two residents help a Resident Assistant ice cookies to serve to the others, and a well-dressed gentleman returns from one of the home’s “life skills station” where he finished up some paperwork in an area resembling his 1950s office.

    In a private room a Resident Assistant is working with a resident to help her decide what dress to wear. The two dresses are laid out carefully to allow choices and the resident feels good about her decision and the control over her attire. These are the sights and sounds of New Dawn.
    About My Services
    Care for individuals with memory impairment including dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is our sole focus. We don’t try to be all things to all people. We specialize in caring for individuals throughout all stages of memory loss, including individuals with challenging symptoms. We do more than just create good days - we work with our residents and families to fight the progression of dementia and related disorders through proper health care oversight, nutrition, and memory enhancing activities. Our specially designed completely secure buildings, on-site nurses around the clock, and experienced staff provides you with the peace of mind you’ve been looking for. The research and information related to dementia care is constantly changing and New Dawn considers itself to be on the cutting edge in the care of those living with this disease. We pride ourselves in offering state-of-the-art care and service in everything we do.
    Conditions I Am Unable To Treat
    We allow residents to age in place and have no business limitations.
    Experience And Credentials
    David Daumit- Founder/CEO
    New Dawn is the culmination of Mr. Daumit’s 25 years of experience developing and operating specialized communities for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments. Every detail of New Dawn is based on Mr. Daumit’s extensive experience, knowledge and passion for his residents and their families. Prior to founding New Dawn, Mr. Daumit was the Chairman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Potomac Group Home Corporation-a successful company that developed and operated assisted living homes for dementia residents.

    David Daumit has been an advocate for the rights of older adults his entire career and his company’s court case, Potomac Group Home Corporation vs. Montgomery County Department of Health et al. established landmark legal precedence that ultimately allowed elderly residents in assisted living communities across the US to choose to “age-in-place”, in their assisted living homes.

    Fees And Payment Sources Accepted
    At New Dawn we have one daily rate for all our residents. Our staff is trained to provide care for our residents, not to calculate the time it took to change a brief or give a bath. We know that an individual’s needs and abilities can change daily. Some days little assistance is needed and some days constant assistance is required, as in the case of an illness. That is why we are here; to provide whatever assistance is needed each day, without you or your loved one worrying that your monthly bill will change, unless you’ve requested additional services. All-inclusive pricing makes it easy to plan your finances.
    We have two all inclusive rates, $229 a day or $249 a day.
