At Forest Valley Terrace, we are renowned for our leadership and expertise in the field of Memory Care. Our proprietary program – called “Moments®” – was developed by Symphony with assistance from several longstanding, experienced members of the dementia care community in both the US and Canada, and is based on many accepted and prevailing practices which are known to reduce symptoms of dementia. We continually incorporate the extensive data and cutting-edge Alzheimer’s and dementia care research of leading organizations such as The Alzheimer’s Society, Women’s Brain Health Initiative, and many others in an effort to provide the best possible memory support for our residents.
Our hands-on experience also gives us unique insights, and we listen and learn every day. For example, one of our memory care team members suggested we try wearing pajamas during the night, as many residents were waking up and they were confused by the bright lights and people walking around in day clothes; so, we reduced the lighting and changed into pajamas… the best part was when our team members came back to us and said “it’s working, our residents see us in pajamas and realize it is the middle of the night and back to bed they go.” Sometimes it is the small, common sense ideas that can make a huge difference.
Symphony’s Assisted Living Neighbourhoods are called “Oasis®.” The name “Oasis” was chosen as it represents a calm and peaceful place where you can live your life and leave your worries behind! Oasis Assisted Living is the ideal solution for seniors who value their independence, yet need some assistance with daily living, or perhaps just don’t want to live alone anymore and are looking for a greater sense of security and community.
In today’s economy, many families are looking for options to make assisted living more affordable. Companion Living is a special Symphony program that brings together two residents to share a suite. This living option can help you realize your financial goals without compromising the quality of care that you or your loved one needs and deserves.
Symphony Senior Living offers numerous types of short-term stays and respite care services to meet your every need. Our extensive range of care services can provide accommodation for those seeking respite for recovery from illness or a medical procedure, trial stays for those who want to experience the lifestyle firsthand, relief for caregivers who want to ensure their loved ones are well cared for in their absence, to the comfort and assistance of palliative care. We also offer the convenience of guest suites for friends and family who are visiting from out of town.
