Memory Care

Sweet MemoriesTM Program at Commonwealth at Cedar Bluff

As a respected provider of memory care in Virginia, the experience and expertise of the team at Commonwealth Memory Care at Cedar Bluff can make a tremendous difference in the life of your loved one, and in your peace of mind.

We understand that people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia have very unique needs that require and deserve a special level of care. Our Sweet Memories™ program was designed to meet those needs, both today and in the future.

It all starts with our team of dedicated caregivers, certified in Virtual Dementia Tour®, giving them a very personal understanding of living with memory loss.

Sweet MemoriesTM • Award-Winning Memory Care

Commonwealth’s Sweet Memories™ program has been designed with care and purpose to deliver the most exceptional care and lifestyle to our residents living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

From the welcoming, homey feeling of our memory care neighborhoods to the experience of our management team, everything within our program has been carefully selected and put in place to ensure your loved one and your family experience only the best in care with confidence.

Understanding that each person in our care has individual needs, Sweet Memories™ takes a resident-centered approach to memory care, providing the most appropriate support that not only meets needs, but also promotes abilities and independence.

Program Components

Sweet MemoriesTM consists of three primary components to ensure an exceptional memory care experience. 

Move-in: From physical to emotional needs, we guide our residents throughout every step of the transition to our community, whether from home or hospital.

Evaluation through life history: We get to know each resident personally. We conduct a comprehensive interview with family members to get to know residents as people. We learn about their medical, mental, emotional, spiritual and intellectual needs, as well as their habits and preferences.

Resident-centered care plan: With that very personal knowledge, our leadership team creates a customized care plan to meet the specific needs of the resident.

Signature Programs • Signature Experience

Our signature Sweet MemoriesTM programs make a tremendous difference in the lives of our residents and their families.

One Sweet Memory: Winner of the Best Practice Award from the Virginia Assisted Living Association (VALA), for going above and beyond the standards of care. Community staff regularly captures highlights of each resident’s day in photographs that are shared regularly with family members.

Expressions: When verbal skills begin to fail, art can become a means of self-expression for residents. Conversational prompting stimulates memories which residents can interpret using a variety of mediums, including painting.

Special Touch: Designed specifically for those with late-stage memory loss, this program provides “special touches” that make a difference in care. In the morning, before breakfast, residents enjoy citrus scented towels to awaken taste buds; before dinner, lavender scented towels help to relax, reinforce the natural circadian rhythm and encourage residents to enjoy their meals. 

Sweet Melodies: For those with later stage dementia who have lost verbal skills, Sweet Melodies stirs memories by using nostalgic music selected by family members.

SMILE Technology: Through SMILE, we can remain connected to your loved one every day. This computer program enables us to keep you updated on your loved one’s participation in and enjoyment of our programming, sharing photos and stories with you on a daily basis.

Memory Care Life Stations: Thoughtful spaces invite your loved one to reconnect and engage with past hobbies, professions and passions.
