Our care is based on the shared experiences of women and fosters strong bonds between the community. The sense of belonging and companionship forms the foundation of an engaged and meaningful life in an environment that feels like home.

How To Decide Between Assisted Living And Memory Care?

Assisted living services can provide additional support for your loved one to complete daily tasks, such as help with dressing, bathing and medication management. Memory care helps older adults with Alzheimer's, dementia or other memory impairments find a higher sense of purpose. While some memory loss is normal for the aging journey, Alzheimer's or dementia is not.

What Type Of Healthcare Is Offered At Symphony Senior Living?

Prior to moving into a Symphony Senior Living community, every resident receives a comprehensive health assessment with a detailed health history. Our wellness team will work directly with each resident (and their family and primary care doctor) to create a wellness and healthcare plan based on individual needs. This allows our care providers to work closely with each resident and enables them to quickly identify any small changes in behavior or routine.

Why Is Respite Care Important?

Respite care provides caregivers with brief breaks in your senior care duties to address their own needs and responsibilities. Caring for a loved one can be trying at times, which may cause family caregivers to feel out of character, stressed and exhausted. Read the benefits of respite care services.
