    SYMPHONY AT CENTERVILLE_100 PX HIGH

     

    Symphony at Centerville is the new standard of excellence in memory care for those who are experiencing memory loss. Our In the Moment Memory Support program uses a unique approach to caring for those with memory loss. Rather than rely on pre-determined activities each day, our signature In the Moment Memory Support Program engages residents in the moment they are experiencing and provides a compassionate and meaningful interaction.

     

    Our In the Moment® program is thoughtfully designed as a team-approach to care delivery. We describe what we offer as Memory Support because we’re intentionally shifting away from outdated Dementia care practices and into a hospitality model. We recognize that each person we are privileged to serve is both unique in their life history, as well as their Dementia journey.  We understand the importance of a scheduled rhythm to each day. However, we also encourage our team members to slow down and embrace the impromptu moments that happen as well.  We find it’s the spontaneous moments have high impact for both the care giver and the care receiver. Living In The Moment, is the greatest gift we can give to anyone we serve; during their journey.  

     

    Our Memory Support neighborhood is designed to offer residents a rich, full life, surrounded by people who truly care about their well-being. You will be impressed with our service and commitment to excellence, all while getting the distinct care you need to enhance your quality of life.
